Congratulations to Gregg B. for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 12 votes - View Previous Winners


I've been hiking high Sierra Nevada recently looking for a few more shots (of trees) before all major trails close. Fall is pretty much over (colors in Sierra Nevada), so I decided to hit a remote location and hike a few miles at around 12K feet elevation to shoot Bristlecone Pines. At this elevation temp dropped to sub-freezing, but that wasn't really a big problem and I was prepared for that. The problem was the wind. It was very strong up there, and temp of 30F felt like -30F.
But with some effort and interesting clouds in the sky I was able to get several shots of much less seen/photographed Bristlecones....

Gregg, your images are just spectacular. The light is special and you definitely caught some nice clouds. I was up there past weekend and got nothing close to what you got. I did the simple discovery trail. YGMV👍🏻

I was there on Friday. I did check the weather forecast before I went, and it looked promising. Get the weather app (PM privately if you wanna know what I'm using) and go when the app shows you good high clouds coverage.

Just leaned that the place got a lot of snow now. The access road might be closed. Yosemite got a lot of snow too. Check out some of the webcams!

I've as yet to get to the bristlecone forest. It looks like an amazing area. Looks like not until next year now. I really enjoy your work. Inspiring.
