PlainSky, Nebraskans: Tree, Sand Creek Badlands

Tree, Sand Creek Badlands

Tree, Sand Creek Badlands

I’ve written before about how I have a love affair with this single tree, lonely in its existence in a draw in the Sand Creek Badlands. This is a third post featuring the tree, this time using the brushstrokes of clouds to extend its branches to the corners of the frame, and the grass and sand as additional textures for the composition.



  1. Incredible shot! Single tree shots are a favorite of mine anyway….but this one is amazing. The clouds and sky, the texture of the tree and the grasses in the landscape, the tree’s branching habit, the tree’s shadow, all add up to a fantastic shot!
