Composition of this picture is rather simple. But it is still very nice for watching. It is nice to know that these moutains are made as result of volcanic activity.
Unfortunatelly I can not help you with shrub name.

Hi Niek. I like the diagonal compo and the amazing contrast. Good focus and interesting vertical cut.

the bright midday sun and clear blue sky have really added to the feeling of this place's desert environment. Crisp, sharp details and a simple but pleasing composition, the diagonal ridge line in the background helps to add ssomething a bit different. I have no idea what this shrub is unsuprisingly, but it does make for a very photogenic subject!

je hebt je daar prima vermaakt zie ik elke keer weer aan je foto's.
Amerika is inderdaad mooi maar ook hier in Nederland kan je genoeg vinden.
Mooi staand landschap en door de aparte boom breng je er diepte in.

Another very interesting image from you, my friend!
First off, i must ask you: did you desaturate the rest of the scene in any amount or was this plant the only thing vivid in the scene? :)
Either way, your composition is very nice here and the view really does give us a true insight about the landscape here. The dry condition are evident and i really like how the shape of this tall bush acts like a host for that - extending its dry and white branch like and presenting the habitat it belongs to.
The diagonal horizon line is also a nice treat, adding depth to the perspective, too.
Very good use of the polarizer, as well.
Bravo and TFS

Beautiful composition, Niek.
A lonely tree in this arid land.
The ashy surface makes a striking contrast to rich colors in tree and sky.
Great visual impact.
TFS. : )

This is a stunning shot, Niek! Perhaps its the starkness that surprises me...I dunno!
I love it!
