Love the bristlecones. Think black & white is the best way to show them off.

Great shot and title. There are few thinks I love more than old wood in a setting where it stands out.

Shot from below and it looks imposing indeed! Is that a shadow of the moon in the background?

Dimple said...

Two ancient things here, each reflecting the sun: old wood and the moon. Wonderful shot!

Wonderful shapes! I love the way that tree stands there like a carving.

What a great shot and a great old tree. Nature is amazing. Your capture is superb in black and white. Kudos!

LOVE the Bristlecones. One of my college profs was an early alpine ecology researcher who did some of the first work on bristlecones...told us the story of getting permission to cut one down for research & then discovering through their work that it was the oldest living thing on earth at the time! His research team immediately set out to develop better ways of dating living trees. Thus today's cambium borers!
