After I made this image, I went online and discovered that this little pine tree is one of the most photographed trees in all of Zion. I had been feeling pretty smug about finding it up in the high country, climbing up on a big rock, and getting this silhouette. Little did I know that hundreds (thousands?) have gone before me. One sweet thing that happened when I climbed up on this big rock - I ran into Elizabeth Carmel, a photographer out of Truckee whose work I really admire. It was a great week for photography in Zion - the place was crawling with the greats!
