Climate changed
« on: September 03, 2020, 11:20:42 am »

These huge, twisted, dead trees, very different from their living descendents, make me curious about the very different climate that they must have lived in.
Feedback welcome.

Beautiful environmental portrait, Scott.
I agree.

It is somewhat reminiscent of the Bristlecone Pines in California, except they al have living parts and are the oldest known trees in the world, I believe.

Interesting! Is this a composite?

A fine shot, Scott. There used to be some of these in Garden of the Gods if you were willing and able to climb up to them. At 90 I can't do it any longer, so even when I get back to Colorado I'll have to just remember what they were like. I don't think any of them were as gorgeous as this natural sculpture. Bravo!

Thanks, folks! Glad you liked it.

Eric: some of the local old larches have a bit if life in them. Whether I shoot a particular tree depends largely on it's setting (must be interesting) and being slightly downhill so I can shoot it without distortion.

Armand: it's not a composite. Perhaps it's a little over-processed? I'd like to know your thoughts.

Russ: thanks for the Garden of the Gods tip, I'll look into it if I ever get out that way.  I'm trying to fit in a bit of activity before I turn 90. Looks like you're shooting lots in Florida.

I do like it, my comment came from the uneven difference in sharpness between the tree and the foreground but mostly because I have a hard time figuring out the scale; if those fir trees in the foreground are not tiny, the tree must be huge.

Thanks, Armand. I'll look at the sharpness. These relics are indeed huge, "Climate changed". I may do a series on them.
