  1. I love the colours in this one. Is it lightening that does this to trees in your area?

    • Thank you, Chillbrook…and I really don’t know. Given our problems with forest fires in the region, it would seem that this one would have been an excellent starting point for a fire…but I don’t know that it would be remaining in the condition that it’s in if that were the case…but again, I really don’t know.

    I like this picture :). Makes you wonder how old that tree is?

    • It does make you wonder…thank you, Jacob.

  4. I saw a couple of trees like that today. They were covered with lichens.

    • Didn’t see any lichens on this one, Allen…seems that most of the lichens that I’ve noticed around here have been on rocks….

  5. I’d really like to hear about the hike involved to bring you to this spectacular vantage point!

    • This was the same hike that brought me to Lake Blanche in the earlier post…this was taken up on the hillside that would be to the right of Sundial Peak in most of the images I’ve shared here…and looking past the peak, which is situated to the right. Depending on the day and one’s company for the hike, it could take between two and two and a half hours to get to the location…and most of it is up, up, up…you gain 2,720 feet over roughly three miles, reaching the lake at 8,920 feet in elevation…makes for a great Sunday morning hike…. 🙂

  8. Haven’t quite figured out what it is about those lonely and solitary trees that seems to draw us to them, but the do seem to grab our attention. Could it be we identify with them in some way? Nice shot.

    • I’m not sure, Gunta…but they certainly capture our attention…don’t they? Thank you. 🙂

  9. Beautiful colours and a gentle light…….thanks so much for sharing your corner of the planet……….I just can’t help thinking how wonderful it is that we get visitors on our blogs from every continent……..and we all share the same appreciation for the natural world, and for photography….and we surely share the same values about life………?
    Thanks Scott.

    • Thank you for your nice words, John…and it’s my pleasure sharing this corner of the planet with you. It does appear that we have some very good company here, too…from all over the globe…and yes, it seems that we do share many values about life, as well…which might stem from that part of ourselves that can appreciate creativity and our natural world. What a conference it would be if we were to all meet somewhere….

      • Great notion…….though do you think that anyone else would get a word in edgeways…. 🙂

        September 25, 2012 at 6:01 am

        • It would be quite a collective…and no, probably wouldn’t be too easy to get a word in edgeways…. 😉

  10. I am ready for some sort of mountain holiday, i think. 🙂
