Point Lobos Cypress by chateaugrief Point Lobos Cypress by chateaugrief

This is a very old famous cypress located somewhere in Point Lobos south of Carmel. I’m not exactly certain where, but I think it’s in the Cypress Grove and there’s a trail that you can go by and see it.  

Point Lobos’s name indicates that there’s some kind of wolf thing involved in it’s history, so I looked it up and turns out, it is named after the wolves of the sea, the sea lions! It was originally named ‘Point of the Sea Wolves’ by the Spaniards, c. 1700s, but the name was shortened to ‘Point of the Wolves’ later for convenience, I assume.

It’s a very popular hiking spot, and also a great place to look for wildlife and sealife. There’s a monarch butterfly migratory ground at the Butterfly Sanctuary. You can see gray whales and dolphins and orcas, seals, sea lions and otters. All kinds of critters like starfish and abalone in the tide pools. And if you’re exceptionally lucky, you might see Bobo the mysterious plesiosaur-like sea dragon. Giant Cave Salamanders.  and of course, Bigfoot.  

Point Lobos even has a magazine, produced with beautiful photos and stories by the Point Lobos Foundation, a group dedicated to maintaining the parks, studying the history, and giving lots of guided tours.

Here’s what our poet Robinson Jeffers had to say about Point Lobos

A lighthouse and a graveyard and gaunt pines

Not old, no tree lives long here, where the northwind

Has forgot mercy. All night the light blinks north,

Xander has nothing to say because he's happily asleep and not bothered by his conscience at all...

A wonderful picture - I really like the composition and lighting! You also did a wonderful job on pointing out some details, whilst other things are a bit more left to the imagination of the viewer :)
I think you also did a good job on choosing the colors for this artwork - they all feel somewhat "consistent", they fit together in this picture.

Thank you! I had tons of fun with the colors here...no simple complementary scheme.  It was fun to get them to 'balance', and a good exercise!
