Autumn reflection

Playing around with Photo Shop on this one. The original photo was that of a “push-up” formation at Sunset Crater National Monument near Flagstaff, Arizona. Pressure beneath the floor of an old volcano had pushed molten rocks dozens of feet upward, creating a pile of rocky debris. A lone poplar tree had found a way to survive on the barren outcropping.

The photo was copied, flipped, pasted beneath the original and rendered as a watery reflection, then an Orton effect was added.

Incredible. Reminds me of a Gerry Uelsmann photo I saw years ago, of a tree on a floating island. I like yours better. The colors and the Orton effect is spectacular.

Excuse me, make that Jerry Uelsmann.
