An Old Tree Near The North Rim Of The Grand Canyon

There were a couple of buffalo standing near this tree when my son and I drove by after a sunrise photo shoot. We turned around to go back but when we arrived the buffalo had left. This tree or the remains of this tree caught my attention so it was not a wasted effort. If the buffalo had still been there, I doubt I would have noticed this scene.

Une photo magnifique de ce vieil arbre s'attachant à la vie avec ces nombreuses repousses dans ce beau décor de peupliers! BV

You framed this old tree beautifully. Such an interesting and thoughtful photo. I like the story that went with it also. Funny how when we think we want to take a photo of something and it doesn't work out often times a better opportunity presents itself. V

This old tree with its remaining lower trunk is well supported by those slender branches....a wonderful location well captured against a beautiful backdrop of autumn foliages...V

I love these many limbs pointing low!
Everyrthing is beautiful and there is a longing here that is very powerful!

Really like your composition with the crisp detail on the old tree and the autumn foliage in the background. "V"

Wonderful with the Autumn colour.

The extreme droop in the branches is opposite to the cheery color of leaves."VV"

A wonderful colourful and well composed scene, definitely worth going back for.

the drooping skirt of branches is somehow enthralling...a stirring image that evokes as much a state of mind as a powerful autumn scene...V
