Such an interesting photograph!

Woody said...

That needs to be printed LARGE and hung on the wall.

Even before I saw the caption, I though, "This must be a bristlecone". Gnarly, Dudette!

Okay I'm having another jaw drop moment here - this is amazingly beautiful. This one definitely needs to be printed and framed!!!

Beautiful shapes and beautiful shot. Well done.

Julie said...

This is incredibly tactile, Jill. The tissue of the old root puts me to mind of swirls of thick oil paint on a canvas.

I can picture you shooting under the black cloth with your 4x5 Jill. This image is rich. Woody's right. This one is an award winning keeper, an outstanding example of fine art in B&W.

An Ansel Adams type of subject, nicely caught.
