I have driven by this tree in the checkerboard area of Zion National Park many times, and always liked it. It sits high on a beige wall of sandstone, reaching into the sky, and has such personality. Yet, most of the times I visited, in Autumn, there were no clouds, and I'd pass it by because I don't care for bald blue skies!

Finally, on one journey I saw the clouds were just right. I photographed it in color, but in post processing, decided that I preferred a black and white interpretation instead, as it brought a more timeless feeling to the image for me.
