Almost Picture of the Day

I took this picture on a recent trip to Arches National Park.  Despite the grandeur of the surroundings, or perhaps because of them, making a good picture is surprising hard.  One of the things most people neglect is the foreground.  Unlike being there in person, looking at a picture gives next to no context.  An interesting foreground helps with this problem and adds an important feeling of balance to the photo as well.  Finally, a good foreground really supports the illusion of depth which is so important in a picture like this.

No the tree's not dead, they all look like that up there.
