[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This scene I've watched for the last 5-6 years on my way to visit my daughter who lives in Prineville, Oregon, about a 3 hour drive from me. It is in the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, on land that suffered a forest fire sometime ago. I've watched these trees wondering if the forest would come back, or they would have to cut them down.
I loved this scene with the dramatic cloudy sky, it's such a beautiful place with all the Pine trees instead of the fir trees we have closer to home.

Hi Lori,
dramatic landscape.
Good colors expecially on the sky.
Nice compo,

Hi Lori,
Was it a natural fire, or caused my humans? This is part of nature, we don't see that often on TN. We rather stick with the more perfect picture, but you prooved that this kind of scenery can also be beautiful. On the bottom of the forrest you can see that live is returning and that someday all parts of the fire will be gone and new life has started.

Hey Lori, I love this kind of photo, perfect details, BG, POV great sharpness, TFS Kyle

So nothing has been done here Lori. And I would have expected new growth to have appeared underthe trees, but no.
It is a good shot with the clouds above the tree stems pointing to the sky. Well seen and captured,
