Fantastic composition Marilyn. All elements of this image work in harmony. And the tree is the "pièce de résistance" giving the shot a little softness to balance the rock. Well done. Do I see buds on the tree at the very top?

Regards, Tom

That's indeed a wonderful picture, Marilyn! The rock is very impressing and I also like the tree in the foreground! Greetings, Anne

Wonderful composition in this one Marilyn.!! And a beautiful upload. Greetings Luud

Thanks for your comments, Tom, Anne, and Luud. I was so intrigued by this light, colourless tree that I struggled past some bushes with long, sharp thorns to get the composition I wanted. I'm glad you think it was worthwhile! Greetings, Marilyn

It was well worth the discomfort Marilyn. A beauty shot!... Anita

Marilyn Whiteley on March 17, 2008

Thanks, Anita. I was careful mainly because I travel as light as possible, and don't bring more clothes than I expect to need! Marilyn

I see what you mean, you could have ended up looking like a prickly pear...:0) Anita

I am enjoying your holiday, Marilyn...your stories and your photography, too. Thanks for uploading as you go!! Ian

It's good to hear from you, Ian. We're having an excellent trip. I brought my laptop along and we've been fortunate to have wireless internet at many places along the way. (In South America we'll have to rely on internet cafes, and I won't have a chance to edit photos on the computer. I'm getting spoiled on this trip!) Marilyn

Scratches last but a few days; that image will stay with you always. Facinating place, well captured.

That's a photographer's philosophy, Keith! Thanks for your visit.

The ghostly tree surprised me. I am glad you like this too. Greetings, Marilyn
