Fantastic Bristlecone Pines

Fantastic Bristlecone Pines

Big Pine, California

Here is the first in a little tour of some of our oldest earth's inhabitants, the
bristlecone pine. Some live to a ripe old age of more than 4700 years! Even after
they no longer produce greenery, they continue to have a stark and abstract beauty.

Honorable Mention, 116th Show and Tell Contest, "Old"

other sizes: small medium original

Nice image Sandi. That is an amazing tree. I'd love that for a bird purch . I've got a chain saw and access to a large truck. Where can I find it ? just kidding. Too cool to cut down. It would make an amazing purch for some of the birds I photograph.

I absolutely love these old guys...they simply amaze me. Being up on the still of the mountain with only the breeze whispering their secrets through the branches and boughs of these wonderful trees truly inspires me. You captured this one superbly.
