Entry Description

Images of the same tree captured several hours apart and at different vantage points. It emphasizes how light and angle can play a crucial role in establishing mood and impact. I found this tree deep in Vermillion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona. A seasonal thunderstorm just passed the area creating numerous pools that temporarily altered this desert landscape, and provided tons of compositional possibilities.
