Robin Perkins photographed this famous lone tree last week, in Zion National Park, after the rest of our workshop group had left for their warm hotel rooms. Phill Monson, C.Y. Roby, and I did the light painting with a couple of Roby's Calumet LED Light Panels, and Phill's Brinkmann Dual Xenon spotlight. Although Phill and I both photographed the this scene, Robin's lower perspective peaked my interest.

Robin was born and raised in the Salt Lake City area, where he played varsity football at Cyprus High School and was a Sterling Scholar in industrial arts. He attended Weber State College and the University of Utah. He worked in the electrical construction industry for 36 years as a project engineer and electrician. Robin was able to retire last year at 62 and and start on one of his retirement goals to become a better photographer. He and his wife, Penny, have two sons, Shane and Travis.
