These trees can be thousands of
years old. Taken with a 20D,
blended two raw exposures to get
good cloud detail.

Thank you for your responses. That
was in Arches NP, and we are returning
again in November to that area.
It's a landscape much photographed,
and finding new ways to interpret
is a fun challenge.
