Bristlecone Pine and Blue Skies

Bristlecone Pine and Blue Skies

Bristlecone Pine and Blue Skies, Patriarch Grove, Ancient Bristlecone pines.

In August (2011), I attended a workshop – \”Dark of the Night Star Photography\”. This was organized by the Pt. Reyes National Seashore Association and the instructors were the really good Harold Davis, Steven Christenson and Eric Harness. (Side Note: Check this interview I did with Harold Davis a while back – its an awesome read.)

On this workshop, we stayed at the Crooked Creek Research Station at 10,200 feet altitude. The accomodation was good – clean, warm. Not your luxury accommodation you would find at a five star hotel, but dorm style with very clean bathrooms, and beds, and a heater and with a very nice view – just perfect for people on a photography workshop.

The point of the workshop – of course was night photography. However, one afternoon, my room mate (for the workshop) Debbie and I drove up to Patriarch grove to enjoy the place in daylight. This was a photograph taken then.
