Ancient Bristlecone Pine at Sunset, Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, Inyo National Forest, California:
Camping with my daughter, Kellie, in the White Mountains brought us into company with many majestic Ancient Bristlecone Pine trees. But this specimen particularly caught our attention with its symmetry and elegance. We waited for several hours for the sun to begin to set and the light to be just right. Our patience was rewarded by this image which is actually a composite of two photographs stitched together to create one.
