Ancient trees White Mountains of California, USA

The Bristlecone Pine Trees are one of the most incredible coniferous evergreen trees on the planet.  They are also known to thrive where other plants do not exist and are the oldest living specimen known worldwide.  The Bristlecone Pine Tree has an average life span of 3,000 years.

The tree featured in the fine art nature photograph is roughly 15 meters tall - the average for the Bristlecone tree.  The image was taken in the White Mountains at about 10,000 feet elevation, but they can also be found in Utah and Nevada.  The bark on the Bristlecone pine is brown/red, with interesting grooves and ridges.  But typically, the trees have very little bark, and the deadwood is exposed.  This is because of the extreme age of the tree.

The White Mountains of California is a fascinating park to visit and absorb the vast landscape, but visitors need to take care as the air is thin at 10,000 feet - carries plenty of water.  Although the photograph is more than ten years old, it was taken with a medium format Hasselblad, one of the most advanced digital cameras at the time, resulting in a picture with incredible sharpness and detail.
