This photo was taken at Yosemite National Park off the path towards lower yosemite falls. It is actually taken looking directly at a stone wall - where the tree had somehow found a way to secure a spot and grew from there.

So far - this entry is looking very good, I'll be very curious to see what the top scoring photos are.

The idea behind the Posthumous Ribbon is to encourage you to break the rules, to find new and different ways to express yourself. To free your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come, to laugh at world and at life, not doing what others are expecting you to do, but just following and listening to what's in your heart. DPC itís a wonderful learning place where everyone should be supported on their way to be a photographer. A special attention should be aimed to those working hard with different views and approaches to photography, those not aligned with the mainstream taste and receiving no recognition. Itís our responsibility to support these photographers creating diversity and expressing different visions. Being active at the Posthumous thread itís the best way to do it. Being active at the Posthumous thread itís the best way to protect your and the otherís freedom of being different. Thanks for taking the time to enter this challenge. Stay wild.

I like the confusion of scale this creates, as I was thinking this a tree taken from an airplane. (not voting)

This is my favorite this challenge. Great job spotting this and then framing it so beautifully. I think maybe I'd prefer a less specific title, but I'm not reducing the score due to that. 9

Wonderful sense of scale and disorientation here. At first glance I thought this was a rock wall....then I noticed the tree. Very well seen and captured!

The tree is deceptively large scale for what I believe is a very small scale ledge. Interesting image, well spotted.

the tree adds so much to the scale of this amazing shot. 8

This is really nice. The splash of green adds a lot to it and it is well composed. The angle of the light brings out all the textures and it's overall a great image. The title suits the image well a I have no problem understanding what you're getting at. 8

Pefect title. Reminds me of the story "A tree grows in Brooklyn".
