Not So Lonely

“I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude."
Henry David Thoreau 1817-1862

This is the Lone Cypress Tree on the Monterey coast. It may stand alone but it is far from lonely. Thousands of people come to see it every year and it is one of the most photographed trees in the world.


  1. i really like your blog concept. Great job.

  2. Breathtaking. I remember that tree from a vacation we took in CA when I was a kid! Beautiful. Thanks for bringing back those great memories!

  3. I can see why, that's a stunning landscape! Great shot!

  4. What a beautiful image. I love how you got all the shades from the blackest black to the whitest white. Nice work!

  5. so haunting and comforting at the same time.
    Thoreau sure was a wise man.

  6. I need to get out to Monterey to take a gander at the most photographed tree! Love this landscape shot!
