I know little about them Jim except that Ansel Adams did a great job photographing them. I have been awaiting my chance as some old guys. Nicely presented landscapeand the bristlecone in the foreground really add to the perspective. #495337

A great composition James A real stretch for the eye! All I know is it appears you were fairly high up in the mountains! #3131305

Thanks, but what did you mean stretch for the eye? If something is out of whack I like to know it.
Yes, this was around 11,500 feet.
Really, really wanted to take some more shots but altitude was too much for us on first and second day there adapting.
