A Tree Grows in Arizona

Pine Tree in Chiricahua

Pine Tree in Chiricahua

On our trip to the Southwest, one of our favorite stops was at Chiricahua National Monument in the southeast corner of Arizona, a little known place of astonishing beauty. Nature has its challenges in this habitat, but it provides for interesting portraits of nature’s adaptations. This is one great tree–I love its angular look. It’s an Arizona Cypress.

    I thought the movie title was “A tree grows in Brooklyn”? I didn’t know Brooklyn was in Arizona, better polish up my US Geography.

    I love Cypress trees. This is such a great perspective showing off the very interesting bark. Lovely.

    You are right – the Chiricahuas are gorgeous. This is such an interesting shot…the bark almost looks like a skirt for this tree.

    WOW..what I wouldn’t give to have a beautiful textured tree like this in my garden! It’s beautiful…reminds me a little bit of our Arbutus trees up here in the North West. TFS

    Wonderful image, Bo. You captured the tree in a beautiful light and the depth of field is perfect in highlighting the gnarly branch.
