This is one of the iconic locations in Joshua Tree National Park in California. I have seen many images from this location, but I figure they must all be from a few years ago because none of them contain the shrub in the lower left corner.
Most of the images I have seen of this Juniper tree and balanced rock were taken from a different angle that makes the tree appear much larger as if it towers over the rock. But in reality the rock is bigger than the tree.
I wanted something a little different than the composition I always see, so I made my image from below which allowed the tree to look smaller than the rock (as it is) and included the curve of the rock the tree is growing out of.
I like the different shapes in the image, the curve of the foreground rock, the opposing curve of the juniper tree, and the diamond shape of the balanced rock.
In post-processing, I converted the image to black and white and added a vignette using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
