Rocky Mountain National Park, USA By David Simms

Rocky Mountain National Park, Mills lake trail. It was early one morning. I was hiking up to Mills Lake. It is one of the parks most beautiful lakes. I came around a bend to see the poor crooked tree leaning over this nice little cascade. It seemed like such an odd way for a tree to grow. As I was setting up the shot, I wondered what had happened to the poor thing. What could have caused the tree to grow at a forty-five degree angle like that?

This was a three shot focus stack image. The first shot was the trees in the background, the second was the leaning tree and the final shot was the plants in the foreground.
