Sentinel by David Pearce

by David Pearce

A large pine stands alone at daybreak, rooted among the hoodoos on a crumbling slope in Bryce Canyon National Park. There is no end to the photographer's journey in Bryce Canyon and other national parks of the US west.
Equipment: Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III; EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens

I'm an avid amateur photographer from Houston, Texas. I shoot wildlife, weddings, architecture, and the unusual here or there, but the real passion is landscapes. I enjoy setting out to capture a location with thoughts of what the best images will be, and finding something else, unexpected and much better than I had envisioned.

Nice to see a different perspective on Bryce; great shot and love that pine standing there alone.

Tree looks kind out of place but still helps to makes this great shot today!

Gorgeous, and great composition. I will commit to memory this idea of including an unexpected focus in a landscape shot.
