Dark Sentinel

This gnarled old tree overlooking the south rim of the Grand Canyon really caught my attention on New Year's Day, so I tried to snap a reasonably artistic photo. I'm not sure if I succeeded or not. It probably would have turned out better had I mounted a stepladder and shot from a higher angle to show more of the canyon itself. Alas...

There's two images in the Wikipedia entry for the word "cliché". One of them shows a gnarled tree framing by overhang a nature scene.

Frankly, I like your picture enough. If you had a ladder with you to set up the shot, then you should have also been able to take that picture of the ice cream man in the Arctic.
