Cedar Tree atop Mt. Magazine

Posted by
Jason Politte (Conway, AR, United States) on 22 November 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Purchase a print of this photograph

In closer now to this small cedar tree that's clinging to the edge of this Mt. Magazine overlook in Arkansas as the rising sun bathes the autumnal trees below in warm light.

Will be away from Am3 probably until the beginning of next year. So, until then, everyone have a wonderful holiday season, and I'll see you all in 2014.

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

My wife Karen also has a photoblog at Open Door.
