Re: Where is this place?

It's the Ribbon Chapel (which is on the grounds of the Bella Vista Resort in Onomichi).

Nope. But close..I think in fact it's a little bit different type of pine.

Cypresses are beautiful, too..
But these majestic creatures are a couple thousand years older.

Re: Where is this place?

Bit hard to tell without much view of the leaves.

If it's old, knarly and happy to survive with the trunk and branches all broken up

- bristlecone? - so some dry bit of the US like Nevada

- juniper? - which could be anywhere really

Yeah! Nevada. Great Basin NP. It's beautiful and surprisingly wet, cool and rich in vegetation, underground as well. It is one of the bristlecone pines.

(The time stamp must have been done when editing the photo, it's in fact a couple weeks old)
