Posts Tagged ‘Lone Cypress’

Two years ago my wife and I attended a wedding in the Palo Alto, California area. During a bit of downtime we took a trip over to the “7 Mile Drive,” a road that runs along the Pacific Ocean that is famous for its scenic beauty. One of the well-known scenic places along the route is called “The Lone Cypress,” which is called the most photographed tree in the world. I dutifully photographed the tree along with dozens of other people around me — trying to think of some unique angle or view but realizing that it was unlikely that any of my shots were going to be very special.  One the way back to the car, I spotted this piece of driftwood, which absolutely no one was looking at. I thought it was quite interesting but didn’t have much time to photograph it since we needed to head back to the wedding. I thought this would be an interesting addition to this week’s challenge and I hope you agree,

Computer problems have made it a challenge to post anything for the past couple of weeks and continue to plague me as my machine is being repaired.  Everything is backed up but a totally disrupted workflow has made doing everything hard and finding anything tricky (without Lightroom)!

Here is a very traditional example of framing and is my entry for the Word a Week Challenge – Frame. The photo is of the Lone Cypress which can be found near Pebble Beach just off of the spectacularly beautiful 17 Mile Drive on the Monterrey Peninsula in California.
