"Heart of the Tree" captured by @marc.adamus. "Looking at this tree from inside a different neighboring one required that I take multiple series' of shots nearly blind, as I didn't have enough room in the other tree to look at my LCD or viewfinder when taking these shots, which necessitated stitching for width and some focus staking too. Ultimately, this is about a 10mm-perspective here. Needless to say it was a bit of a process to put this together. I like it though. In fact, it may be my favorite Bristlecone shot which is saying a lot. It captured the colors, form, textures, heart and warmth of these mountain giants. Hope you enjoy."
