A Very Often-Photographed Piece of

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 23 July 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This piece has been photographed and published by countless photographers - all at various times of day, season, and angle. It is a wonderfully striking example of the beauty of the wood grain. This will be the last "formal" picture from Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest - tomorrow is a departure shot. By the way the other trees that you see are also Bristlecone Pines...just a LOT younger!!

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
