SPLIT ROCK WYOMING 1998
SPLIT ROCK WYOMING ©1998
SILVER & OIL
This was one of my favorite rock studies because of the natural design and the boulder lead-in to the pinion pine in the background.
I revisited this spot last October (2010) and worked it over again with digital. The pine was reduced to a lot of broken pieces and the scene simply was not worth a second image.
A lightning strike may have put an end to the Pinion Pine. That happens frequently in this part of the country at the higher altitudes.
