Sunset on the Old Ent

Setting Sun Through Twisted Window

The setting sun shines beneath the twisted arms of an ancient tree atop Grouse Mountain in Colorado.

Details: while I shot many images from this rock outcropping on Grouse Mountain in Mueller State Park in Colorado during this hike, this old tree was the target for the outing. I just love how it stands defiant, rooted in granite, and from this vantage, its arms take on a haunting human-like quality, like an old Ent from the Lord of the Rings. The golden sun rays and wispy clouds were a wonderful gift to the composition which was captured in HDR to preserve the highlight and shadow detail.
