Monochromatic image of a tree in a landscape. The tree (identified as Cedar) is on the right side of the image. It has a thick main trunk with thin branches with foliage attached. The foreground is dark, almost black. In the background are light grey mountains (identified as the Spanish Peaks) and large clouds. The top right and left corners are darker grey. The horizon line is roughly halfway down from the top of the page.
