Lone tree, Painted Hills
the idea for this photograph is copied from my wife, well sort of :)
we were on the Overlook trail with my wife walking ahead of me, clicking photos with her camera (which, according to her, takes better portraits than my camera and all my lenses combined) and all of a sudden she came running back , excited, showing me what a prize composition she had found and that I should check it out too. I did and she had indeed captured the lone tree beautifully and so I tried my version too. I did vary the angle a bit , getting a bit of the Painted Hills on the left side of the frame (wider than the 24 mm I had then, should have got more of it ) and simplifying the sky a bit – but the core of it is pretty much inspired by her photo !
