I photographed this scene on a backpacking trip during the spring of 2015. This tree had caught my eye many times while hiking through the canyon on past trips, but it was on this trip that I found a composition I liked.
The challenging part was waiting for a break in the wind so the leaves were not blurred during the long exposure that was necessary. I can only carry 8 sheets of film with me when going on backpacking trips, so every photo counts.
If you would like to know more of the story behind this photo, please watch my video journal at the bottom of this page. It was filmed the day that I took this photo.
