Pinyon Pine in Capitol Gorge
Capitol Reef, Utah
Leaning out from the far canyon wall, the isolation and dominance of a large pine drew me nearer. It extended away from a protective bulge of rock, forked into two large branches, and reached searchingly through the air. Deep green needles stood stark and resilient amidst the gnarled constellation of dead and crooked limbs.
the intense stillness the clearly audible sound of landing snowflakes
whispered a soft, percussive chorus that seduced me into deep listening
and quiet contentment in this enchanted, mystical land.
