Ancient Sentinel

Ancient Sentinel

© 2014 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

Zeiss was kind enough to provide me with their excellent Distagon T* 2.8/15mm wide angle prime for this trip to Arizona, and I had the good fortune to visit the Grand Canyon on this trip. The canyon itself is epic, of course, but the light was not exceptional while I was there. It can be a challenge to capture its immense scale at the best of time. One of the things that really caught my eyes, however, were some of the amazing bristlecone pines along the edge. These gnarled old sentinels have ages that are often into the thousands of years. They stand as silent witnesses to seasons, years, centuries, and even millennia. Amazing!
