Out of the countless Bristlecone trees that we saw, I think this one is my favorite. There is just something about its shape and the fact that it stands out so cleanly from any other trees. It's the one that I see as having the most photographic potential. Indeed, as soon as we saw it I knew it was the one I wanted to come back and photograph at night with the stars and moonlight. Speaking of moonlight, you can see the moon rising just to the right of the tree in this photo. This photo was made about an hour and a half before sunset.
