The Tree


This is one of the trees in the Palouse that we love. It is the tree that we photograph from Steptoe Butte in the evening and the one we love to get up close and personal with in the morning. On this morning I looked behind me and noticed the clouds. So I went to the other side of the tree where it was front lit to be able to place it against the nice sky. 

We have just a few spots left for our B&W focused workshop with special guest Chuck Kimmerle in February.  We will begin in Las Vegas and then head to Valley of Fire and Death Valley on this trip.  More details on my Photo Tour page.

    I find it amazing how interesting one tree can be. Of course you framed it beautifully and had a perfect sky. Still this tree is not what I would call the typical iconic tree we all love to photograph. It looks like, well, a tree. Yet put in the right composition with the right light and you get what you have presented here. A damn fine piece of art.
