Photographer's Note

From the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in the White Mountains along Highway 395 outside of Big Pine, CA.

These hardy but slow growing evergreens are among the oldest living things in the world. These speciments are probably thousands of years old.

This photo was captured during what sofar had been a disappointing photo trip. At the supposed most photogenic grove of these trees about 1000 ft highter, it was overcast, snowing and freezing. On may way down, I saw this scene as the sun broke through the clouds. warming the bark of the trees.

A warming filter was used and some post processing was done to clean up dust in the sky and clouds.
