Magical Moonlight Over Lost Rocky Mountain Pine

This image, Magical Moonlight Over Lost Rocky Mountain Pine, was a challenging scene to capture for sure. Only after several failed attempts, while crawling in the dirt, around cactus, and in-between sagebrush bushes, did I finally get the framing and composition somewhat close to what I saw in my mind’s eye… astute photographers call this “working the scene.” In today’s world of digital photography and silicon-based post-processing, creating what one sees and conveying those emotions experienced is more possible than ever before. There are many aspects to what this image almost is, though ultimately none too strong; it does however leave me wondering about the barbed-wire fence, the rancher, his era… and of course, what ended the magnificent giant and younger sidekick.
