This amazing shot of the Lone Cypress Tree in Pebble Beach was taken by Della Huff. In her own words.

“Starry Night at the Lone Cypress.” Pebble Beach is a special place for me and for my family, and I’d been hoping for and planning this photo for awhile. I finally got this shot a couple of weeks ago on a rare clear and balmy August night. As always, feel free to share!

For the technically inclined, this is a single image (Canon 5D Mk III, 16mm, f/2.8 30s ISO 3200), with no light painting. The illumination of the tree was actually coming from a nearby house (er, mansion). Luckily it wasn’t so bright as to ruin the image.
