That's because the cypress trees lose their needles and turn gray.
|Pine islands are harder to see during summer.|
During the winter they really jump out.

Cypress domes are filled with water during the summer whereas by the end of winter they are at various stage of drying down.
|Cypress knees stand as tall as their name,|
but water rises up them only shin deep.
