Mountain Light

This timelapse is from the film TimeScapes, by the photographer Tom Lowe. It includes shots of bristlecone pine trees, which can live for nearly 5,000 years. It was featured as part of our “Long Shorts” series of short films that convey long term thinking. This Long Short was screened at Rachel Sussman’s “The World’s Oldest Living Organisms” SALT.
