Simple Contrast

A found this single common mullein (Verbascum thapsus) plant growing from the crevice of volcanic rock in the Bonito Lava Flow near Sunset Crater National Monument. I like the simplicity of this photograph, just rock, sky and plant, but there is also a lot of contrast of color and texture between the sky and lava rock.

*Thanks to my dad, Jim Blodgett, for help with the plant identification.
