Swamp,

Cypress are typically sparse like that up top. that's what I think makes them so distinctive and pretty.  There are a few limbs way up there and they have little tufts of leaves/needles that make them look kinda oriental because they are flat.  Those that have spanish moss hanging from them are even more so spectacular.

This is a very healthy tree and is one of about four remaining in a damp spot that will become pasture.  Remember I've talked of clearing out wetland species because the Gov. will stop you from using your land if they are found?  Well.......    This is to be a pasture.

I was curious because I've seen yellow cedar/cypress with almost nothing left for crown and still supporting a farely large tree. Those things are indistructable except burning. Where I worked in Northern BC I never saw any regenerating because of the sitka deer problem and they grow up in the mountains, not down next to sea level like red cedar. You wouldn't think the deer would be in the higher elevations, they must think they're goats.  :'(

A picture I took a while back. Any guesses where it was taken. Kind of looks like it might rain.

The picture was taken in1969 at China Beach, an in country R and R center at DaNang, RVN. The US TV show  " China Beach" was very loosely based on this R and R center.

If you look at the file title, it will give you a good clue. ;)

If you mean on the left of the picture, they are sand bags.

Here is a nice sky scene, but you may notice I took it while working on the BNSF Railroad out in Nebraska, hence the lack of trees.

Funny story...  :)  Well, I may be the only one who thinks it is funny, but....

We went to visit Devil's Tower and were camped out in a field, sleeping under the stars. I looked up and there it was--a UFO. Seriously! Slowly moving across the sky. NW to SE.

This was quite a few years ago--just after the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind came out.

SD, there was a little trading post just outside the entrance that we stopped at. It had been raining and I noticed the view before we got out. I just had to take the picture.  ;D
