Since my first trip to Bryce Canyon I have been fascinated by the pines that grow along the rim. Their tenacity in the face of a hostile environment represents for me a metaphor of the spirit of America’s pioneers, and for that they have a special place in my heart. I will have a series of three or four fine art prints based on this theme in the next few weeks, but I wanted to share a quick HDR rendering of a particular tree that caught my attention at sunrise.
Here is ‘Standing Tall’, as a preview of the beauty of Bryce.
