Old-Growth Bristlecones

Posted by

Two old-growth Bistlecones catch the last warm light of the day in the Schulman Grove located in California's White Mountains, home to the oldest living tree the Methuselah. These trees are estimated to be over 5,000 years old, making them the second oldest living specimens on earth second only to a creosote bush in Africa. Obvioulsy having a beautiful sky helped enhance this image - one of those moments in nature where all the elements come together perfectly. To see more of my images, please visit my website at
