This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

Everywhere in the park pine trees integrated with the harsh landscape, many of them clinging tenuously to life on the cliffs.

The roots of this lone pine made a stark silhouette at dawn as they clung precariously to the edge of the cliff.  To emphasize the shape of the roots I chose a ground-level angle and put them against the lighter part of the sky.
Pines crowded between the canyon walls along the Navaho Trail rise towards the light.

I liked the starkness of this scene of craggy trees and their shadows integrating with the equally rough textured background.

A 200mm focal length captured this distant landscape and compressed the scene into a tableau.

This pine  atop a high cliff over-looking the canyon, and the morning clouds echoed the shape of the rocky terrain. Shot with a Sigma 12-24mm zoom set to a 12mm focal length on a Nikon D800.
