The Old Guard – Bristlecone Pine Forest, California

The Old Guard  – Bristlecone Pine Forest, California

This is a still from a motion control time-lapse sequence taken during the Fall of this year. While ancient Bristlecone Pine trees are old they look young compared to the stars up above. I was particularly fond of the juxtaposition of the two subjects and I’m eager to see how my lengthy time-lapse sequence comes out.

If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare.

    Excellent photograph, Jim. I realize the star trails images are all the rage, but I like this sky much better.
