    Reminds me so much of the Congaree Swamp National Park right down the road from me, and a place that I visit often.
    Very nice lighting and composition showing these cypress knees out in nature!
    Thanks for showing this one to us all!

    Mrs McConnell hosted a fantastic meal as part of an International Dendrological Society tour around the Auckland area, part of the 2002 IDS conference on Araucariaceae, so I got to see the ‘knees’ in person! Her garden is truly amazing…

    …And all the whole village gathered at the edge of the sea..
    Wonderful photo for the fanciful minded, like me, thanks for this one! I love it!

    Wow, that’s amazing. I thought it was a Japanese rock garden when I was viewing the thumbnail. And yes, it does look like they are all looking out to sea.

    On a visit to the Corkscrew Alligator Sanctuary in Florida, I learned that the knees help to stabilize the trees during high winds. The ground is boggy and with the knees sticking up, everything stays in place better. At least that was my understanding.
