Bristlecone Pines

An afternoon and evening are just not enough time to spend at the Ancient Bristlecone Pine forest high above Bishop, California in the White Mountains. Next time I go back I'm staying in the campground. We first stopped at the former location of the visitor center. Former cause some crazy guy torched it last year. Good news it will be rebuilt.

This first image captivated me because it reminded me of the Roadrunner.

Before coming to see the Bristlecone Pines I knew I wanted to make some silhouettes. So I did.

These previous two images are a couple of the betters ones I made. In particular I like the one with the star burst coming thru a hold in the branch. I need to go back and try more (hear the theme here?...I will return).

  1. Beautiful shots. Galen Rowell made me a fan of the Bristlecones. Your pictures definitely do them justice.
