Trees are beautiful, but how about dead trees? If you think there’s nothing but decomposing wood, you might change your mind after this post. Below are some stunning photos of dead trees captured by those talented photographers. They are still rotten wood, however, they are more than that. When you look at them, you are looking at a part of history, witnessing the natural change.

The bristlecone pines are three species of pine trees believed to live longer than any other known organism, up to an age of nearly 5,000 years. They’re grow in isolated groves between 1,700 and 3,400 m (5,600 and 11,200 ft) elevation on dolomitic soils. Because of cold temperatures, dry soils, high winds, and short growing seasons, the trees grow very slowly, which gives the tree’s terminal branches the unique appearance of a long bottle brush. For most of us, we probably won’t be able to see those natural wonders personally. Thanks to those adventurous photographs who made their way to bristlecone pines and bring below awesome photos.

Simultaneously eerie and enchanting, the mist-filled forests photograph were captured by brothers Andrei and Sergiu Cosma of PhotoCosma who live and work in Romania. A haunting overtone encompasses these images making it look as if this were the real Sleepy Hollow or the location of the Blair Witch Project. Truly remarkable work! [source]
