Tree at the Top of the World

2010.10.13
pixel
This old dead tree stands at the very top and on the edge
of the overlook at Grouse Mountain in Mueller State Park,
Teller County, Colorado. I met this tree after hiking up the
trail just before sunset last Saturday. The park guidebook
says, "a photographer's dream."
I couldn't disagree.

netterbutter beautiful! Especially number 2- the texture is amazing!
netterbutter · 2010-10-13: 15:40
SunflowerGirl Oh, lovely. For some reason, #2 sort of wrapped me up into itself. Very well done.
SunflowerGirl · 2010-10-13: 15:44

djnana This tree is only a tree until someone like you turns it into a "photographer's dream"! These are magnificent shots - love the detail in #2, but #4 does it for me! The clouds look like a continuation of the layers of mountains.
djnana · 2010-10-13: 20:22
????? Super super cool!!!
????? · 2010-10-13: 21:14
NellyBly Ooooooo, they are so right! Look at all the lines and texture..also those limbs reaching look like they could be in scenes of a creepy movie..It is almost Halloween ya know...love the color in the last one..Well done, Marsha (as usual)..
