Life, Death & Rebirth of Cypress

Fires reaching wide and far burn down the work of centuries. However, the plant kingdom is so strong in survival. New sprouts come along and give a momentum for the old furrowed trunks. Each is a piece of art in creation.

Pictures taken at the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) of Crete, at an altitude somewhere between 990 and 1280 meter. 

For more enjoyment of the cypress quality, guide yourself to discover the Golden Green of Cypress. Otherwise, I invite you to share your reflections here in comment with what YOU see in the pictures.
