Tree Tuesday

These photos were sent in by Opus and were taken in a bristlecone pine grove near Lone Pine, California. I think they make a brilliant set. Their beauty is stark and tortured and they evoke feelings of tenderness and vulnerability in me. Well captured, Opus. I’m so glad you shared them. Thanks.

    Ha, almost as old as the Earth itself! :D

    Now seriously, excellent work you did here Opus. Gorgeous images, I keep scrolling back up to stare at them. Especially the first one.

    These are such beautiful images. And the trees themselves! Survivors and I do hope they can survive the coming years.

    The way they contrast the background almost looks as if they were pasted on.
    I want to touch -- the way the wood grain curves and twists, I want to feel that.
