This knarled pine tree grips to life on a rocky outcrop which seems to offer a very precarious foothold. The sun was sinking lower and the shadows were marching onward through the scene as I tried to wedge tripod legs into awkwardly placed nooks and crannies. The background trees are on the other side of a river bank and I see the lone tree as a pioneer spirit boldly conquering new territories.
