Heres the stem. And whats amazing this rose bush has never been fertilized.
"The world's largest rosebush is in Tombstone, Arizona. It is a white Lady Banksia whose original root came over from Scotland in 1885. From a single trunk, it spreads over an arbor that covers over 8,000 square feet. Each year in the Spring it is covered with millions of tiny white blossoms most of which are only about an inch in diameter."
Dramatic river bend surrounds a natural red-rocked pedestal
"Just a short hike from Route 89 near Page, Arizona is one of America's great natural wonders. In a spectacularly dramatic landscape, the area provides great hiking among the red rocks looking over the river.
Although Horseshoe Bend is a natural formation, it is almost perfect enough to cast some doubt. Swirling around a 1,000-foot-high pedestal, the Colorado River bends in a smooth circle around a massive, craggy rock formation before flowing back through the Southwest"

"PLEASE WATCH IN HD FULL SCREEN w/SOUND. It is a much better viewing experience. Hopefully you have a 1080P monitor and good connection. If not, bug a friend or colleague that does. It is worth it.
Landscapes: Volume 2 is the second of a three part series (probably). Every frame of this video is a raw still from a Canon 5D2 DSLR and processed with Adobe software. In Volume 2 I again show off my beautiful home state of Arizona and I also made several trips to Utah. This video has some iconic landmarks that we have seen before. I felt that showing them again with motion controlled HDR and/or night timelapse would be a new way to see old landmarks."
