Beautiful, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 3, 2020 • 10:19 pm Thank you, Lynn. That’s a good analogy. 😉 Reply ↓ Yoshimiparis Photographie June 3, 2020 • 6:44 am what I like to see the tops of these trees come together to form a vault under which cars roll This tunnel reminds me of a scene from a movie (very successful and whose name I forgot) Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 3, 2020 • 10:20 pm Thank you, Yoshimi. I bet this place has been in movies, if it hasn’t, it should be! 😉 Reply ↓ James Goff May 31, 2020 • 7:51 pm What a sight! I would love to go here one day! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 31, 2020 • 8:32 pm Thanks, James. And Point Reyes is a nature paradise. Reply ↓ Andrew Seal May 30, 2020 • 12:50 pm So great to spend the morning catching up with all my favourite people. As always I feel better for visiting you Jane. These are such difficult times and my thoughts are very much with family and dear friends like yourself down south. One can only hope that better times lie ahead, that justice will be served and there is a better future for everyone regardless of colour, race, religion, sexuality or origin. Sending you my warmest good wishes as always…Andrew Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 1, 2020 • 9:16 am Hello Andrew, Heartwarming to read your caring message. Our country is falling apart and these are the most stressful times we have had in recent memory. It’s been a terrible and tragic week. Let’s hope for better days ahead. 💔 Reply ↓ Steve Gingold May 30, 2020 • 12:12 pm Super location so wonderfully captured, Jane. I wish we had a tree tunnel like that here in the northeast. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 1, 2020 • 9:00 am Thanks, Steve. This is a real surprise to see and in the midst of Point Reyes National Seashore. A place you would go crazy with your camera. Reply ↓ Steve Gingold June 1, 2020 • 10:04 am From everything I’ve seen online from there, I certainly would. I visited once while in the S.F. area seeing my brother. Only for about an hour, I don’t remember why. Funny thing…on the way back to Fairfax apparently there was a minor earthquake. Thanks to shock absorbers and being in motion we didn’t know until getting back to the house and finding a message from my sister-in-law asking if we felt it. There are occasional tremors felt in WMass but nothing says earthquake like the San Andreas. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 1, 2020 • 10:30 am I’ve only felt two since being here. The big Napa quake a few years was most significant. It was a roller in the middle of the night and our bed swayed like we were on a boat. Lots of damage in Napa. Hopefully those will be the only ones! Hope when life returns to normal you’ll make a west coast nature trip. 😊 Reply ↓ Steve Gingold June 1, 2020 • 10:51 am I hope so too and since I’d be in your neighborhood I’ll be sure to touch base…if you aren’t traveling the world. 🙂 David May 29, 2020 • 7:58 pm Gorgeous, gorgeous, especially in B&W. O/T: I found my new Canon at eBay. It’s a EOS Rebel T6, new in box, with two lenses – kit:18-55mm and telephoto: 75-300mm, and a camera bag. Canon is selling the same camera and two lenses, factory refurbished for $320.00 through May 31, no camera bag. It might make the trip to NY. 🙂 🙂 🙂 The other night, someone was selling new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera bodies for $34.95, literally too good to be true. It’s one of their top-of-the-line DSLRs. The camera body alone retails for $1500+. I asked a question if this was legitimate. He sold out by the next morning, so I didn’t get a reply. I probably could have put together my own kit with brand new lenses for less than $200. Oh well, lol. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 30, 2020 • 7:54 am Thanks, David. Congrats on finding your new camera. 🙂 The second Canon can’t deal can’t be real… Enjoy your new gear! 🙂 🙂 Reply ↓ www.corneliaweber-photography.com May 28, 2020 • 8:59 pm I love the background information about this image. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 29, 2020 • 9:41 am Hi Cornelia, Interesting history of this place. There are many historic buildings and farms here but it is mostly wonderful preserved green space. Thanks for visiting. 🙂 Reply ↓ www.corneliaweber-photography.com May 29, 2020 • 8:09 pm It’s always a delight to visit the place of your art, Jane. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie June 1, 2020 • 8:58 am Thank you, Cornelia. These nature gems are an inspiration. Reply ↓ Jordan Hoggard May 28, 2020 • 6:01 pm Luke Skywalker would be beaming at the exquisiteness of the dark path on Round 2. Such a nestling, nourishing portal of Both/And fully integrated. Excellent visual metaphor for life. Reply ↓ Jordan Hoggard May 28, 2020 • 6:02 pm And, the light at the end of the tunnel? SO not a train coming the other way. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 29, 2020 • 9:40 am A portal to a better world. Just what we need. Thanks for sharing your imaginative thoughts, Jordan. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jordan Hoggard May 29, 2020 • 1:55 pm You’re welcome, Jane. I enjoy riding the evocative of art in penning a description, let it see where my imagination takes it. 🙂 Reply ↓ M.B. Henry May 28, 2020 • 2:38 pm Lovely! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 29, 2020 • 9:39 am Thank you, MB. A favorite stop in Point Reyes. Reply ↓ ecopoet May 28, 2020 • 2:04 pm Love the embrace of trees , eco 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 29, 2020 • 9:38 am Thank you, Ecopoet. That is a perfect analogy. Embrace. 🙂 Reply ↓ ecopoet May 29, 2020 • 9:49 am have a safe & nice week-end , eco Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 29, 2020 • 9:53 am You, too! 🙂 Reply ↓ Michael Scandling May 28, 2020 • 7:42 am I’d like to be there. Right now. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 29, 2020 • 9:38 am Me, too. Point Reyes is the perfect antidote to the stresses of the world. 🙂 Reply ↓ Peter Klopp May 28, 2020 • 6:24 am The cypress tree tunnel turned out awesome in monochrome. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 28, 2020 • 6:39 am Thank you, Peter. It does lend itself nicely to it. So glad you like it. 🙂 Reply ↓ Eliza Waters May 28, 2020 • 5:17 am LOVE! ❤ Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 28, 2020 • 6:39 am THANKS! ❤️ Reply ↓ Graham Stephen May 28, 2020 • 5:02 am wonderful! I always find tunnels fascinating. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 28, 2020 • 6:43 am Thanks, Graham. This is the entrance to an historic radio station built in the 30’s in Point Reyes and the trees have survived. Glad you enjoyed them. Reply ↓ Graham Stephen May 28, 2020 • 7:47 am Thanks for the background information on this, Jane. Just found this: https://www.nps.gov/pore/planyourvisit/kph_treetunnel.htm That Marconi got around a bit, didn’t he? There are remains of one his stations nor far from here: https://geotopoi.wordpress.com/2010/08/14/marconi-long-wave-transmitting-station-cefn-du-waunfawr/ Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 28, 2020 • 8:29 am What a great connection, Graham, and that you did a post on him. 😉 Synchronicity. Thank you for sharing. Reply ↓ AmyRose🌹 May 28, 2020 • 4:27 am Wow!
