Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

many perils plague the ponderosa pines on Lily Mountain...some have been reduced to barren, agonized skeletons by wildfires, and yet others, like the brown one behind, are under fatal attack by pine beetles

Nice shadow tentacles spreading over the rock looking for purchase. Excellent capture of the tree and rock textures. V

The trials and tribulations of a tree...who knew? I like the branches in grotesque shapes, and the great shadows!

Love the shadows behind this skeletal tree.

Now things are truly dangerous. You've got me on that cliff, no way to escape, a helicopter in the sky? Yes, it is Cary. They are letting down the rope ladder!

Fantastic shadow with those gnarled reaching limbs and splintered bark. Love the drama here.

Nice use of the shadow to emphasize the feeling of death and decay. "V"
