Utah Juniper (still life)
« on: June 18, 2015, 05:34:51 pm »

Came across this small juniper tree while hiking in Canyonlands last week. At first I wasn't that impressed with the tree, but as I looked at it more it reminded me of a bonsai. I decided to photograph it like I would a still life. I framed up the shot and waited for the clouds to drift into to position.

Wonderful B&W. I like the separation (just enough) between the tree and the distant mountains.

Yes, I like that a lot. It's got a nice gentle tone, and it only slowly reveals its location.

Wow, this is nice. Love the framing here. The background is majestic but yet so subtle and does not detract from the overall image. Makes it a really nice complement.

I like this one a lot. Well composed and processed. I bet it looks even better as a print.
