Shade of the knee high cypress

The shade of the dome brought some relief from the sun ...

If only I could have found some place to sit.

Cypress domes are shady, thus the water stays cool.

During peak wet season, ninety percent of the Big Cypress Swamp goes underwater, but only shallowly so.

Most places get no deeper than your knee.

Tops of knees often stay dry all wet season long

Not to be confused with cypress knees.

Come to think of it, they tend to stay dry, too ...
At least their tops.

You might have been able to sit on the cypress knee in your last photo. Fantastic - not landscape - treescape?
