Weekend Scanning: Bristlecones Found

I'm starting to look at the first two years of photos that I've taken here in Colorado.  Fresh from the California Central Coast, I was totally in to B&W.  Still shooting in my California Style

One of our early off road adventures was in search of the local Bristlecone Pines.  You've seen others before, but these are new:

Ilford Delta 400
Mamiya 645


  1. I usually like to shoot these guys in B&W too... something about their gnarly shape and texture just doesn't seem to need color. If you're from CA, you must have been to the huge bristlecone forest in the White Mountains east of Bishop?
    Nice shots.

  2. I have been to the White mountains. Spectacular. I have also seen the Bristlecones at Great Basin National Park in Nevada, and I've heard that there are Bristlecones at Cedar Breaks in Utah. I'll look for those next time I am in that area.

    The ones I've posted so far hare here:


    All of the ones outside the White Mountains grow faster and therefore die sooner.
