Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Guardian of the Sky” by Les Zeppelin Baran. Location: Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, White Mountains, California.
“This is an iconic living statue of nature, in the 4,000-year-old pines in the White Mountains of California,” says Baran. “I faced a few obstacles in order to take this shot, though I liked the challenge! These vertical mountains stand up to 50 to 60 degrees. At 11,000 feet elevation, it was very difficult to separate the pine from other objects to create an acceptable composition. It is vertical in a special way, but the October candy sunset and clouds helped me out! I used a wide angle lens, 24 mm shot with minimum aperture and minimum ISO."
