An ancient bristlecone pine grows in the harsh rocky soil in the White Mountains of California. The wind has blown so strongly that the tree grows only on one side with the other being barren.
I've been to visit the ancient bristlecones several times and taken hundreds of photographs of these wonderful trees. This image is by far my favorite. It's not a colorful shot but it shows the incredibly harsh environment in which these trees live.
This photograph is available in a limited edition of 100 fine art prints. Each print is made to order with the highest quality pigment inks and fine art papers. They are signed and come with a certificate of authenticity. Small prints under 15" on the long dimension are excluded from the edition. If you have any questions about this specific image or my prints in general, please don't hesitate to contact me.
