The Lone Cypress on Californiaís central coast is a real icon of the 17-Mile Drive in Pebble Beach. Itís been photographed hundreds of thousands of times, and many landscape photographers have at least one shot of this famous isolated tree in their collections (including me). I was lucky on a summer afternoon to find good views of the Lone Cypress that werenít fogged in. To try to create a more unique image for my portfolio this time around, I converted one of my photos to a subtle sepia tone.
Even the most often-photographed subjects have some unique views. All you have to do is take the time to find them!
