I feel humbled when I stand next to organisms that are much older than me whether it's the bristlecone pine or "General Sherman" sequoia. They put me in my place :) Thanks for this amazing shot of the sentry/guardian tree.

this shot? Bristlecones are one of my favorite alpine trees along with the Alpine Larch found in Washington State. So many of the desert peaks have these ancient
beauties adorning their slopes or summit areas. Beautiful picture.

Thanks Dean. I never get tired of looking at or photographing bristlecones.

A study in contrasts. Very well composed picture. I love how gnarled the tree is. Twisted deadwood (or nearly dead) is my favorite photographic subject. Thanks for sharing.

I'm a tilt freak. I walk into a room and start staightening the pics on the wall before I can engage anyone.
Feel like I'm on a ship at high seas.

layin' off Dave K may be the only option here. since the bristlecone leans into the sagging horizon with entropic zest!

You can't win at pinball it you don't tilt the fuckin' machine!
