Diamond nights

Photographer Beth Moon, the author of a series of images of the oldest trees in the world, inspired by scientific research on the effect of cosmic radiation on tree growth, created another cycle, this time photographing trees against the background of a starry night sky. I am sure that you have never seen so many stars in the sky. Watch "Diamond Nights" through the lens of Beth Moon.

6. Another researcher, Lawrence Edwards, noticed that tree buds are not dormant in winter, but change their shape and size, and this is repeated cyclically throughout the winter. Even more surprising was the fact that the cycles for different types of trees are different. (Photo: Berth Moon).

7. Painstaking measurements and research by Lawrence Edwards showed that the cycles of change in the size of the kidneys did not correspond to either solar cycles or even lunar ones, but to conjunctions (conjunctions) of the Moon, Earth, and various planets or the Sun. (Photo: Berth Moon).

8. Very interesting were the observations of the famous researcher Lawrence Edwards. So, for example, the planet Mars influences the oak, Saturn influences the beech, Venus influences the birch, and the Sun influences the cherry. (Photo: Berth Moon).
