Cyprus trees and boardwalks. Favorites of mine, both. Boardwalks are just cool. I'm not sure what it is about cyprus trees that fascinate me so. Perhaps it is just that I don't see them very often, since there are none around where I live, but seeing them rise up out of the water with their iconic shape always piques my interest. When we go to west Tennessee to see my wife's mother, I always try to get up to Reelfoot Lake and get a shot or two of the cyprus there.

The lake itself is pretty remarkable. It was formed when earthquakes of 1811 and 1812 on the New Madrid fault caused the area to subside. Eyewitnesses claimed that the Mississippi River flowed backward for 10-24 hours as it filled up. Check it out: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reelfoot_lake
