Twisted Pine

Twisted Pine

The arid, desert climate and rocky terrain of Canyonlands NP create a harsh environment for vegetation. Yet plants of all varieties seem to thrive, or at least endure, in this wind-swept and sun-baked region. Standing defiantly on a ledge overlooking a precipitous drop off, this weathered pine caught my eye. The intersecting curves of the bark and interesting shades and contrasts are enhanced by a black & white image.
