A gnarled, old tree, surviving on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. From Wikipedia:
"Grand Canyon National Park is one of the United States' oldest national parks and is located in Arizona. Within the park lies the Grand Canyon, a gorge of the Colorado River, considered to be one of the major natural wonders of the world. The park covers 1,902 mi² (4927 km²) of unincorporated area in Coconino County and Mohave County.
Most visitors to the park come to the South Rim, arriving on Arizona Highway 64. The Highway enters the park through the South Entrance, near Tusayan, Arizona, and heads eastward, leaving the park through the East Entrance. All park accommodations are operated by the Xanterra corporation. Park headquarters are at Grand Canyon Village, a short distance from the South Entrance, being also the center of the most popular viewpoints. Some thirty miles of the South Rim are accessible by road."

Bonjour, cher ami Chris,
Impressionnant moment de grande solitude quand l'on voit ce spectacle.
L'aridité domine, l'on sent le soleil écrasant touchant ces lieux mythiques.
Une très belle photographie, une fois de plus !

Un bien bel arbre solitaire dans un décor de rêve, ces couleurs rose rouge à l'arrière, il doit être vieux vu son tronc, mais il tient le coup, superbe.
bravo et amitié

A fine image of this desert landscape. The old tree makes an interesting focal point before the eyes delve further into the scene. Excellent clarity throughout.

The tree in the foreground is like a guardian of this area of the Grand Canyon. The point of view is sending our eyes toward the Grand Canyon in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors and is giving them a good contrast. Have a nice day.

j'adore les couleurs fortes et la profondeur. Le format vertical cadre bien avec cet arbre presque complet. Un avant plan très lumineux qui attire l'oeil. Net et précise, j'aime beaucoup cette désolation bien rendue.
