nature’s howls and whispers
carving majestic landscapes
This photo was taken at Dead Horse Point State Park in Southeastern Utah, USA, near Canyonlands National Park. The discovermoab website states that “The view from Dead Horse Point is one of the most photographed scenic vistas in the world,” the panorama of the Colorado River Canyon. (Also, see my other posting here, from the same park.)
When I’m visiting the parks in Southern Utah, I tend to notice the character of old curly trees almost as much as I notice the breathtaking scenery. Sometimes these trees appear to be growing right out from bare rock. I often try to compose a photo with one or more curly trees in the foreground, and the photo above is one of those attempts…the trees are in the foreground nearest to you on the left…and the further to the right you go, the more distant the formations are. The constructed lookout point (upper left) and the people offer a perspective on the size of this spectacular landscape.
This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is to share a photo
that means near and far to you!
