the lone cypress 2

The Lone Cypress 2

surely battered by wind and waves; exposed to the elements from its granite pedestal and secured by half-hidden cables, this is the iconic lone cypress of pebble beach in the monterey peninsula of central california.

a rainy and foggy morning for my return trip to los angeles, i took the 17-mile drive, while it was still dark, to start the day. i arrived at the lone cypress during a foggy, but thankfully, dry dawn and stood by the magnificent tree perched on the coastline.

this is the second in a series of four (4) photographs of this oft-photographed iconic landmark.

golden gate bridge

VB9293

photographed from one of the lookouts in the marin headlands, this is the world famous, and probably one of the world’s most iconic landmarks: the golden gate bridge. it connects san francisco to the headlands over the golden gate strait. here it is on a sunny may afternoon, once the clouds and fog from earlier in the day had dissipated.

through the arch

Through The Arch

a gloriously hot august summer day in paris. relaxing by dipping feet in the cool fountain pools of the jardins du trocadero. forbidden as i recall. well, when in paris… the eiffel tower in full view with the école militaire visible behind it through the base arch facing me. the hustle and bustle around the landmark: people walking, traffic stopped on the pont d’iéna, tour bus in the distance… what a nice day!
