Lone Cypress…

Two days of posts in a row. Can you believe it? I sure can’t. Well, it’s true, and below is the proof. I shot and processed this one, again with the iPhone 4S, while exploring the scenic 17-Mile Drive through Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove, on the Monterey Peninsula, in Northern California. There is such stunning beauty to behold there that I processed this in a way that would hopefully communicate the “feeling” I had while there, that is often hard to convey verbally. If ever you find yourself in that area, do go check this place out. By the way, I’ve heard (not sure of true), that this tree is owned my one of my favorite movie stars/directors, Clint Eastwood, as part of some partnership, and that the tree is either trademarked or copyrighted. If that’s true, I’d say that’s pretty lame. Anyway, behold… The Lone Cypress! By the way, the Grandfather of HDR photography himself, good old Trey Ratcliff, over at Stuck In Customs, posted a shot of the same tree over on his fab site as well, on 6 April. Check it out HERE!
