Just along the coast from the lone cypress is another famous old monterey cypress - the ghost tree.

ghost tree

'Tis dead and beautifully bleached white by sun and salt but I shot it in silhouette with as little light as possible to try and get a little atmosphere.

Coming up: condors, bright red seeds, not condors and floaty turtles.

Your blog is such an escape for me from the Ohio winter. Thank you. BTW I left a comment for you on the macaw/mango post with a link to a tour operator who's going to Guyana. Thank you so much for inquiring--publicly--that's the whole point of posting about Guyanan ecotourism! Yay! I hope you do go!

Thanks Julie (for both the kind comment and the guyana advice)! I'm afraid the blog hasn't been as tropical as usual this winter because I'm still working my way through all the Cali photos. Turtles later in the week should warm things up.

We're tossing up guyana, venezuela and costa rica at the moment.
