The Solitary Cypress

Solitary Cypress ~ Val d'Orcia region of Tuscany

This lone cypress tree compelled me to find a spot to stop the car and pull out the camera as we drove through the Val d’Orcia region of Tuscany last summer.  A couple of other trees, just skeletal trunks and branches nearby, may have once kept it company, but now only the solitary cypress remains in this classic Tuscan landscape.  There was something magically compelling about this scene, as if the tree had a story to tell.  But, perhaps it is just another example of that magic of Tuscany itself.
