Another great find Jeff. Unfortunately if I had taken this shot from your perspective I would be reducing the image to an abstractive creation based on my imagination at the moment. So I like the image as is with the combination of the upward perspective and the sense of texturing from both the rock formation and bristlecone pine. I have the sense of slight over saturation or is the bristlecone pine actually this color (saying having never seen one in my life).

Great comp Jeff, agree with Jan about saturation,

This is an old photo and if my memory is still functioning I was using Velvia at the time
which was famous for color. The tree is facing late afternoon sun which really lights up
these ancient trees, especially against the dark rock. I believe the color is pretty
natural, at least the way Velvia chooses. If I decide on a print Iíll take a closer look and
see if I can tone it down a little. Thanks for your comments.

I agree with the others - great composition. Looks like a creature from outer space ready to invade the plant.
