Horizontal cypress

 

A giant cypress growing near the tree line above the plateau of Omalos.
This specimen truly deserves the "horizontal" in its scientific name Cupressus sempervirens var. horizontalis. Growing in a very windy environment and subjected to high snow fall in winter these trees best chance of survival is to hug the slope. I asked someone to climb up to the tree as it was the only way to create a sense of its enormous size.
