Several times a week I drive by a small lake that has several Cypress Trees growing right along its banks. Cypress Trees are mostly grown in flood tolerant wetlands and grow in swamps, along river and lake banks. When they grow near water they produce protruding stumps known as knees. Florida laws prohibit cutting or damaging the knees.
On this particular day I drove by and noticed the setting sun was casting a nice back light on the knees. I didn’t have my camera with me so I drove home and returned in time to capture this image before the sun set lower behind the nearby buildings leaving them totally in the shade.
