Great image. Such a nice clean graphic feel to it yet still organic too.

~honoring oldest known living tree in Europe, a Bosnian Pine in Northern Greece, more than 1075 years old...oh the things it's seen...the things it knows to be truth.
[ I somehow have landed on an alternate plane to that of the LULA I had known and loved, and apologize for my part in the below transaction. I stand reminded how much I had enjoyed this community when freely shared photographic currency of even eclectic bent was passed about across our ways between friends in light]

Three Trees, CDT, left tree by tanngrisnir3, on Flickr

Strong photo. I think if you cropped out the ground, it would be even be stronger--more abstract.

I doubt that it could be the oldest known tree in Europe, this olive tree in Italy is said to be  3000 years old... http://www.sabinadop.it/olivo-millenario-palombara-sabina.asp


The olive trees generally are known to be the oldest trees.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olive#Oldest_known_olive_trees

The Larches too can be very old

regarding the olive:  L'età stimata dell'albero è di 3000 anni e, prima che un'autobetoniera ne spezzasse ed asportasse un quinto del fusto, questo misurava nel punto più largo della base oltre i 12,50 metri di circonferenza e 8,50 metri nel punto più stretto.

regarding the larches: Age records In this table of age estimates and ...

From the "Wiki" provision you note:
... however, these estimates could not be supported by current scientific practices.[51] Ancient trees include two giant olive trees in Arraba and five trees in Deir Hanna, both in the Galilee region, which have been determined to be over 3,000 years old,[51] although there is no available data to support the credibility of the study that produced these age estimates and as such the 3000 years age estimate can not be considered valid.[

Makes a change from debating film vs. digital.

One mad scientist could, however, saw both down and count the rings, all in pursuit of that renowned method of testing-to-destruction...

I don't know how was dated the italian olive tree (still alive). Some of those mentioned in Wikipedia were dated using a  scientific method, for example the olive tree In Croatia and those in Bidni, Malta (carbon).


http://www.independent.com.mt/articles/2011-08-16/news/2000-year-old-trees-still-producing-olives-297296/


The age of the three Larches of St. Gertrude (South Tyrol) was determined by examining the growth rings of one of them (they were four) fallen, I think in the '30s .

Though hardly the intention. I am with absolute clarity remembering a discussion we had regarding "pissing matches". Certainly was not my naïve intent to have had this little drama. World so busy with our nastiness, dark menace circles unremarked, as that arrived as black dog, sole  survivor on burnt crust of earth, rising to devour as he discovers there is one other. (can't seem to recall the title now but it was a small cahier by Laszlo K., a collaboration with Max Neumann ). Life and light deserve better of us... Leaving behind the offending image renamed with my apology and adieu.

The "rocky", vertical, root of the pine is probably older than 1075 years, anyway it is very evocative (as visual root of the pine, not as real split in the rock) of "dead seasons". ("Morte stagioni", dead ages, an expression of G. Leopardi) .

From a recent day trip up to the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff Arizona. The Aspen were certainly in their glory.
