Image no. DVNP0201: Remnant.  Nov. 3, 2015, 12:31 PM.  Nikon D7000, 18-200mm VR at 38mm, f/16, 1/160th sec., ISO 160.  Image specs: 4928 × 3264 pixels, 5.9 MB file size.

Laying on the Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes in Death Valley National Park, with no apparent origin, this parched remnant of a tree looked like it had been dropped here as if by helicopter.  There was no foliage within sight that hinted of having spawned a growth of such girth, and the sand surrounding the log was undisturbed except by wind. I found it charming and eerie at the same time.
