Distant mountains, glimpsed through a palo verde tree, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

tangled in the shade
of a gnarly desert tree—
trembling little dove

  1. What a beautiful mess of a tree.

  2. What a beautiful picture full of atmosphere !

  3. Great shot of the tree. When we lived in the desert (Brawley, CA) and traveled to L.A. we would often stop at “the tree” along the way – not many trees in the desert – but glorious when you see one.

  4. Swirling wonderfulness of the tree trunk. You have captured a surprisingly complex scene. Very beautiful.

  5. A desert relative of the Ents, maybe?
