"AGAINST ALL ODDS, THE TREE GROWS"
by Aimee Martin
This picture was taken in Canyonlands National Park during a club trip to Arches National Park and Canyonlands in 2011.
We took a small road off Highway 163 south of Moab, going toward the southern section of the park. I had parked the car off the side of the road and only saw this scene when I got out of the car.
It spoke to me two ways:
One....Emotionally. It evoked the struggle for survival in this barren, beautiful red rock country.
Two....Photographically. It was the simplicity of the scene. It had only 2 elements, rocks and a tree.
