One Tree Hill

[singlepic id=1266 w=700 h=700 float=center]

The backdrop of clouds that morning really helped isolate this tree at the top of the hill at Chautauqua Park in Boulder, Colorado.

I set out that morning to get an iconic shot of the Flatirons but the shot I had in mind never materialized. That’s not a bad thing. It forced me to think different. Different compositions, different angles. I wasn’t going to be able to return to shoot there any time soon, so I had to play the hand I was dealt.

I stole the title from a U2 song from the Joshua Tree album. It seemed to fit. Its also a reminder that Monday will be the first of my weekly “random rock lyric” challenges. At the end of the post will be a random line from a classic (or not so classic) rock and roll song. The title of the post will include an additional clue that may or may not relate to the image.
