Harmonious Complexity

Image taken in Patagonia Torres del Paine National Park with Mount Los Cuernos in the background. This national park was filled with beautiful remains of trees that were burnt from a massive forrest fire many years back. This place was the ultimate playground for photographers. I noticed this one tree with its branches reaching out and forming a natural frame around Mount Los Cuernos. The tree's complexity is harmonious to its environment.

Thank you! That's too bad about your trip. We were supposed to be in Dolomites this year too, would have been my first time :(
But we're planning on going back to Patagonia next year and will be staying longer.

I really love the composition! Could you explain why you left the bright, colorful clouds in the top right? It feels like they draw the attention away from the mountain and rest of the image. I'm trying to learn so any insight would be appreciated

Thanks Gregory! Not sure what you mean by 'left'. The sun rose at the far right, so the scene only caught a portion of the clouds that lit up. Ideally I would've loved for the whole sky to be on 'fire'. But it's just not possible with this composition. Thanks again!
