The Archery Olympian, White Mountains, CA

I swear when I first saw this bristlecone pine that’s what came to my mind: an olympian or the greek god Atlas holding an arch. These bristlecone pines are sexy, there are endless ways to look at them. I was inspired by a Marc Adamus panoramic image of these ancient trees with the milky way arch so we did a day trip to the Bristlecone pine forest near Big Pine, CA. This is my mere attempt to “imitate” the master’s panorama and capture what I saw. Thanks to Alan and Willie for many great MW photography pointers for sure! Check out their work if you have time. Oh forgot Alan does not post, his upstream connection at home is probably still being handled by a 2400 baud modem or something, it takes him 6 months to upload 2 photos.
