„Rhythms in Bristlecone Pine Wood“

from the gallery of Lee Rentz

The Bristlecone Pine, found in the highest mountains of North America's Great Basin, has the longest lifespan of any tree on earth, with some individuals living 5,000 years. This Bristlecone Pine had died years--perhaps centuries--before I took this photograph; this exposed wood has been weathered over the centuries into a lovely patina of lines and color.
