Before moving to Taylor, Texas in 2009, I hadn’t given much consideration to cypress trees. Each day, I appreciate them a little more. These photos were taken at Bull Branch Park tonight. The opening photo frames a Waxing Gibbous moon, 87% visible. It was cloudy this evening, but the moon peeked out from time to time. If we get a break in the clouds, the first day of the new year is supposed to give us a full moon. The moon is presented in the opening photo. The others are just simple renditions of those wonderful trees.
