Lone Cypress

Perched on top a granite hillside this tree sits facing the Pacific is home to the most probably the photographed tree. I've been watching the webcams in the area to see what the clouds were doing, before making the hour and half drive to the coast. I knew that at this time of the year, the sunlight would provide a beautiful glow if all the elements would align. I arrived and quickly set up my camera, I wanted to capture the motion of the waves as they clash against the rocks and capture the scene as it unfolded.
