The bark of the Arizona Sycamore produces a pleasing composition, the pale greens and brown tones play well off each other.
This tree was photographed at Montezuma’s Castle National Monument, just north of Phoenix. The Monument protects Native American dwellings tucked into the breaks of a mountain. The property has many Arizona sycamores and velvet mesquites. Quite a lovely place in the fall, with Arizona’s moderately high temperatures offset by the welcoming shade of the tall Sycamores and a cooling stream running through the property.
This is the second photograph in the wabi-sabi series.
