Lone Cypress 17 Mile Drive

After a long day of taking photos on the 17 Mile drive we headed to the Lone Cypress to shoot the sunset. I quickly realized that the sunset was not going to come out, so I seatled for a nice quiet time to reflect and put my camera down. On my way up to the car, I say this, so I took one shot, I must say I got lucky, the colors came out crisp and the contrast looks really good.

About the Lone Cypress:
Standing on a granite hillside off California’s scenic 17-mile drive in Pebble Beach, the Lone Cypress is a western icon, and has been called one of the most photographed trees in North America. The tree is located between Cypress Point Golf Course and the Pebble Beach Golf Links, two of world’s most well known golf courses. Possibly as old as 250 years, the cypress has been scarred by fire and held in place with cables for 65 years” Wikipedia
