The Ancients by Nate-Zeman The Ancients by Nate-Zeman
Bristlecone pines are one of the oldest single living organisms on the planet. The oldest as much as 5,000 years old. The bristlecones on Mt. Evans are as old as 1500 years. Its amazing to think about what the world was like since they started growing, and how many sunrises they've seen.

I'll be making a trip to Mt. Evans in a couple of months for shots of the Bristlecones. Do you have any site or trail recommendations?

Hey Nate, what's the technique to get that star effect you get in many of your photos? Tight aperture and ND grad filter? Or are you bringing it out more in post processing?

yeah just a really small aperture will give you that effect
