Loneliness, Lassen Volcanic National Park, 07/04/2021

This pine tree stood on the volcanic ashes of Cinder Cone volcano. In the morning of July 4th, when we walked around Cinder Cone towards Painted Dunes, this tree caught our eyes. The straight line of the hill of Cinder Cone split the frame and created this simple but powerful composition, allowing the pine tree to stand out of the background of bright sky. This is the kind of photo that we were always looking for.
