Photographer's Note

South Fork of the Provo Canyon where this was taken is an interesting place. It is a little side canyon with streams, more side canyons, farms, ranches, and wildlife. It runs north to south, and sunrise comes late most of the year.

I had driven past this grouping of trees many times, and had determined that the repeating shapes and textures were worthy of an image. I was setup and waited for sunrise. I made the images just as the sun crested the east rim of the canyon.

Tech Note:
I placed the exposure on Zone II, which was set for some of the darker bark on the trees, which depending on your monitor, may or may not show detail. I developed to keep highlights with texture in the distant trees. Which, worked out to be normal development. The bright highlights in the foreground were beyond the point where I could keep detail without removing too much contrast from the negative and removing the feeling of morning light.
