POINT LOBOS,  a dramatic meeting of land and sea. Trails and road give access to spectacular views. On Highway 1, just south of Carmel.

–While it may seem to be a trick of photography, the color of the ocean water at Point Lobos is indeed this exceptional shade of blue.

MONTEREY CYPRESS

Pebble Beach, California

This famous wind-blown Cypress tree is on the 17-mile drive overlooking Carmel Bay.

–This image is more recent as shown by the missing limbs on the tree, particularly in the center gap and one extending to the right below the canopy. What apparently was once cultivated grass has been allowed to revert to the more natural landscaping.

This image likely dates from the 1970s.
