On a recent hike along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, I remember standing below this ridgeline, resting and snacking on a stale strawberry fruit roll and really admiring these far-off trees. This area was very rocky and filled with brush but those little trees managed to take root and find enough moisture to keep growing here on this southwest-facing slope.
I really like this composition, again for its simplicity, but also for its various lines. Movement is very important in a photograph and it's tough to shoot simple compositions and manage to achieve movement at the same time. I think this image is a success in that respect.
