Desert winner

The winner of this week's Reader SunShots theme "Desert" is Zolt Levay for his photo "Dead Tree, Arches National Park, Utah." It was taken with a Nikon D300 on a tripod and Nikon 24-85mm at 1/25 sec. and f/29. "This was a small detail I noticed while walking among a fantastic landscape of immense, unbelievable rock formations," writes Levay. "I was drawn to the graphic, organic form of the tree branch against the stark texture of the red rock wall." Senior photo editor Jerry Jackson critiques, "This beautifully composed abstract screams desert Southwest. I love how the extreme depth of field almost makes the tree appear as a fissure in the sandstone wall."Zolt Levay
