I was photographing along the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway on the east side of Zion National Park in November 2015. We were heading into the sunset hours and there wasn't much color in the sky. As I was looking up at the surrounding rock walls, I noticed this lonely tree high atop the rocks catching some of the fading light. I played with a number of different compositions and settled on this one. I was trying to use the negative space in the sky on the left side of the frame as a counterpoint to the heaviness of the rocks on the right side of the frame. Using a panoramic crop then forces the eye toward the side of the frame and the up to the tree on top.
