Cypress tree Pebble Beach

I'm not naturally drawn to nature as subject matter. I'm more inclined to view disruptions of the natural order as ripe for picture making. But still, I do appreciate what others have done in this area. On those occasions when in such scenic locations--and when carrying my camera--I do snap away with the thought that perhaps something will rise above the ordinary wonderfulness. Later, when confronted with the decision to devote time to a photo, I've concluded that my image offers nothing of particular value. On this particular day where the beauty of the central California coast was the most obvious visual disturbance, I surprised myself by liking this.

After seeing this post on flickr, I realized I seldom saw nature imagery as the subject of your work. Now I know why. I am selfishly pleased you made an exception on this day.
