Cypresses in a cliff

After missing a really good photo of a large group of Cretan wild goats because of having the wrong lens on my camera I finally put the correct lens and was searching for the herd further down the hill. i only got two stragglers (just about visible in the top image) but more interestingly I also caught a massive cypress growing straight out of the vertical cliff. Considering that this cliff is a good distance away from the foreground (it looks close but that's because I am using a 300mm lens) I worked out that the tree must be at least 15m tall. That's an amazing size for a tree growing in a cliff. You can see a larger image here.
