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.

Initial HDR rendering of Standing Tall

One thought on “The trees of Bryce”

  1. Molto poetica come immagine. L’albero che per poco rimane ancora ancorato al terreno dinnanzi ad un’immenso baratro è sublime. Poi, come ti dicevo, è veramente molto bella la luce della prima alba che s’intravede
