Another shot from the Point Reyes National Seashore. I like the soft, dispersed light that filters through the fog. After hiking along the Tomales Point trail with only low shrubs and grass left and right, I came back to the Pierce Point Ranch and only then I noticed these trees, as they provided such a big contrast to the landscape I had been in for hours before. The Pierce family must have planted these trees, either for timber or fuel, or just for the comfort of having them around. I don’t know what connects us with trees, but somehow I find being close to them comforting. To see their massive structures and to listen to the sounds that the wind makes when it rushes through their leaves and branches satisfies a need in me that is very different from the side that lets me program, analyze complex structures, or visualize data.
