Point Lobos Cypresses

A group of cypresses at Cypress Point in Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel. This is one of my few keepers from my visit there last week. I have been practicing the fine art digital printing techniques learned in Yosemite as I develop new images, and I think the new learning may be paying off.

Excellent job of simplifying a really busy and overwhelming place, Barbara! This is really beautiful and gives some of the overall feeling of Point Lobos! I can always find something new here- no matter how many times I go there!

You've really captured the weathering and the form created by the wind.

The gnarled trees make me think of Lord of the Rings and the treents.. the tree people.

@Dutch: Ooo...thanks so much, Dutch! Yes, I see that! It is so hard to get a good composition out of the chaos of the trees. I am glad you like it!
