I'm always amazed that trees can apparently grow out of rocks. This is a wonderfully colorful illustration.

the lone tree grabs all the attention from the boulders. That area always reminds me of dinosaurs! :)

Yeah me too - every time I go there I feel like I am going back in time a bit.

This place may be well known and often photographed but this unique image demonstrates the improbable within its beauty.

Very clever composition to maximise the combination of the different elements in this great scene. Beautifully done!
