Star trails, Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, California, USA
A vertiginous spiral of stars circles over an ancient bristlecone pine, considered the longest continuously living life-form on Earth. These trees are unbelievably hardy, growing in exceedingly dry conditions at altitude. At 11,000 feet the sky is clear, cold, and dark, perfect for night photography.
