Timeless Tree and the Cosmos
Photo and caption by Gilbert Vega
This photo was taken at Schulman Grove, west of Bishop, California. The long exposure was metered for the sky and the foreground was lit with a flashlight. I wanted to capture the roughly 4,000 year old dead tree along the with the billions of years old Milky Way Galaxy, an unchanged view for thousands of years. The silhouette is an unlit living bristlecone tree.
