Endurance by Andy Wu
I wanted to shoot this unique scene after the grueling (but fun) hike to the Wave. Weather was promising with monsoon storm forecasted so I decided to car-camp the night before right below rock. Wind was blowing sand all night & even rained a little. After some restless sleep I got up to the top & searched for a good tree…. & found one. It amazes me that in this desolate dry land a healthy cottonwood tree can thrive in this natural ‘pot’ by just feeding on pooling water from occasional storms. And the rock formation is other-worldly…. Was hoping for a better sunrise burn but I am quite content with what I got from just 1 morning visit Hope u like it too.
