autumn blaze

Bald cypress dressed in its best fall fashion (North Florida).

My favorite tree in my yard – I have about fifty of which I planted around fifteen or so. The remainder are “babies” from the original two trees that I planted back in 1991. The bald cypress is a member of the redwood family and some call these trees Eastern redwoods.

Camera and lens – Canon EOS 7D with Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM zoom lens.

This one is about 40-50 feet tall.
The top of the tree just before the last light of the day. The cones are clearly visible.

Camera and lens – Fujifilm FinePix S9900W with Fujinon 50x 4.3-215mm f/2.9 zoom lens.

This is about the best color my yard will see this autumn. The things that look like balls are actually cones or seed pods that the male bald cypress produces throughout the growing season. They are about the size of a golf ball and just about as heavy. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
