Beautiful Old Tree Friend

Beautiful Old Tree Friend

White Mountains, California

This barren tree is certainly one of the oldest of the bristlecone pines, the oldest (Methuselah) being determined to be
an astounding 4767 years old!! It's a humbling experience to stand in front of one of the oldest inhabitants of the earth.
(Ces arbes sont les habitants les plus vieux dans le monde, a quatre mille sept cent soisante sept ans.)

Well Done

Yowser! That's an old tree :o)) But it's also a stunning capture as well - I love the way the deep blue contrasts with the beige-y, woody colour of the tree. It's a simple, uncluttered composition, but a really strong one. Vote!
