View on the Crater Lake of Oregon, a dry pine skeleton in the foreground, Wizard Island in the background

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This pine tree grew once at the very edge of the volcanic crater, until it broke down probably under heavy snow. The rock-splitting roots remained on the spot, looking down to Wizard Island.

Ein tolles Foto! Der Bildaufbau gefällt mir sehr gut. Es wird eine richtige Spannung erzeugt: erst der tote Baumstamm, dann der blaue Kratersee und zuletzt die einrahmenden Berge. Nochmals: Toll!
