Fuji 4900z @ 23.9 mm, 1/550 sec, f/8.0, ISO 200, 16 May 2002, PP Saturation, highlights/shadow, sharpening
I had hoped to skip the old pictures for one post and have some fireworks picture from the 4th of July celebration here in Denver. However, no picture was good enough. I tried to improve them with PP, darkening the sky made them look more like computer art than a photo. I guess I need to practice more on photographing fireworks and on the PP for them.
So back to California and 2002. This is the lone cypress at Pebble Beach, Very beautiful area and they claim that this is the worlds most photographed tree. It may be, there must have been at least 25 who were snapping pictures when we were there. The tree is between 200 and 300 years old and clings to a rock out in the ocean.
