A winter shot at the Bristlecone Pine Forest.
Awesome Nick. Some great focus and depth of field on this one! Love the shape and texture of the bristlecone pine.
WOW !!! this is gorgeous !
Ancient trees, them Bristlecones
The sure are! Love those trees!
You've got your Bristlecones, and I've got Yew
Yes yew do! How old be that one?
I had a cutting that's now a sapling from the Fortingal Yew, the oldest living tree in Europe, at around 6-7,000 yrs old. And in my pocket I have a piece of Yew that's 3,800yrs old, so I can always 'touch wood'. It's a very magical piece of wood
Being into botany that is an amazing opportunity to have a cutting of that tree. I am sure it may be pretty common to obtain that specific strain due to extensive propagation? I'd like to try a few seeds of the bristlecone but it is pretty picky about where it grows. It would be fun to try.
is that that 4000year old tree.
Some of them are, yes. I am not sure the age of this specific one. Apparently one of them is just under 4800 years old. They do not say specifically which one it is to prevent vandalism. But It is within this grove.
What an impressive tortuous dead tree
Most intensely fractalline!
Effin sweet Nick. One of the best black and white shots I've seen in a long time. Great comp and tones.
This is amazing! The tree, the composition, the use of black and white... it all works so well!!
Love it! That tree must be ages old.
