Second from Bryce Canyon, same polarization caveat as before, but I’ve done my best to correct it out.  It’s odd how a bunch of dead, or at least dead in appearance, trees can look so cool among the red rocks.  Probably because they’re the only thing that can grow there so they are naturally isolated.

Moving on to Bryce Canyon, this is one of the bristle cone pines there.  I thought it would be a good idea to use a polarizer to keep the brightness of the sky in check, but in hindsight, I think it made the sky look a bit off and I would have been better off just dialing down the exposure to make sure that the histogram didn’t shown any white clipping.
