The Lone Cypress

Before I get to today’s image there are a few unbelievable sales that I wanted you to know about.

From Aug 28th to Sept 2nd save 20% on all prints in the Edith Levy Photography (yup…that’s me 🙂 ) gallery. Just use the coupon code LabourDay at checkout.

Craft & Vision is celebrating its 4th Birthday with a 50% off sale on all its ebooks  on Aug 27th and 28th only. There’s no discount code to use, the 50% discount is automatically applied at check out. This is a great time to stock up on ebooks you’ve missed. Click here to go to the Craft & Vision site.

The other incredible deal I wanted to tell you about is from Gura Gear.  They’re having a sale on both the Kiboko 22L+ and the Bataflae 18L from August 28 – September 3.



The quality of these bags are unparalleled. I just received the Bataflae 18L a couple of weeks ago and took it on its first trip last weekend. First impressions have been great and I’ll have a full review on this bag in the near future. In the mean time it is very rare that Gura Gear has a sale on its bags so if you’re in the market for a new bag then check this out.

Now on to today’s image. The Lone Cypress is probably the best known landmark on the 17 Mile drive in Pebble Beach. It’s prevailed on this rocky perch for more the 250 years.

  6. That’s the kind of image that you could design a room around. That you *should* design a room around. What were your first thoughts when you saw it?

  9. Yes, I saw and photographed this tree in the year my daughter was born. In fact it was on the same trip as my post – ‘hot tub’ – today. What coincidence! As for bags, I have more than my wife has handbags. My ‘go to’ bag is the Domke but I’ve got so many others for different purposes.

    • I saw you’re post today. We wanted to stay at the Ventana Inn but ended up staying in Carmel instead. It’s a beautiful place.
