Wow. Great shot , Scott.
I’m always wondering how to photograph tall trees and have been getting lots of good ideas from your photos in recent months.

Thank you, Victoria…I appreciate the compliment. Will look forward to seeing your photos…. 🙂

Love the somewhat de-saturated look and feel of this. Nicely framed.

Thank you, David…I tried black and white but it seemed to be lacking enough contrast or definition…just didn’t seem to “have it.” 🙂
August 31, 2012 at 7:03 am
Absolutely love the colours in this …. more please?! 🙂
August 30, 2012 at 8:23 am
Thank you, Dreams and Zeros…will see what I can do. 🙂
Fabulous picture Scott. 🙂

Once again you amaze us with your choice of perspective and subjects for your photographs. What an amazing picture and aptly named!

Thank you, Steven…I always enjoy your visits. 🙂
..that is where all the good trees go to die… 😉

At the top of their world…in a beautiful and desolate place…. Thank you, Nancy. 🙂

I love twisted, gnarly old trees. I could spend a day just looking at its grain patterns.

They are very compelling, aren’t they, Allen?

The hues are very nice in this picture Scott, did you have to tweak the colours? If not the light is rather special. Great capture!
August 30, 2012 at 2:14 pm
Thank you, Finn…and I did tweak the colors a bit…tried B&W at first, but wasn’t pleased with the result. I’m glad you enjoyed the photograph. 🙂

Noble trees, stately even in death…… and so difficult to capture things so big………..great viewpoint, treatment and capture. Another winner Scott. Your do have a striking natural world round your way……..
August 30, 2012 at 3:06 pm
Thank you so much, John…and yes, it is a rather striking corner of the world that I have around me here.

Your mountain series reminds me of the time when it dawned on me that Utah isn’t all desert. Lovely way to show us there’s life in them thar hills!!! 😉 Lovely images, Scott.
August 30, 2012 at 3:44 pm
Yes, dear Gunta…there is beautiful life in these here hills…and beautiful remains of life, too. 🙂 Thank you for your nice words….

I agree that the desaturated tones of this photograph work really well in your presentation of their lives. You are a sensitive soul with the talent and eye that enables you to share your perspective in your photographs. That is a gift, Scott. And, you use it well.
August 30, 2012 at 3:52 pm
You are precious, George…thank you for your words. 🙂

Old dead trees make such good subjects.
August 30, 2012 at 7:56 pm
I agree, Leanne…thank you.
August 31, 2012 at 7:11 am
Your slight lowering of the saturation is just the ticket here, Scott. It looks almost like a clear, frosty winter’s morning, and the clarity is stunning.
August 31, 2012 at 7:10 pm
I hadn’t thought of that frosty appearance, Gary, but it does look like that…thank you. 🙂
August 31, 2012 at 10:59 pm
Ph yeah! I love that!
September 1, 2012 at 2:38 pm
Thought you might like that, Terry…thanks. 🙂

Still majestic after so much time. The tones are lovely in this, Scott.

They are, indeed, Karen…and thank you.
