Central Valley Gold

A lovely view from the hills above the Central Valley, CA


A rare outing produced a handful of really nice sunset images I'd like to share with you. Although I was able to spend the entire day shooting some of my favorite places, the efforts yielded very little in the way of quality images (could be just me!), but clouds formed about noon and remained till dusk, and, with this strong composition, yielded some gold. After being skunked on my last 2 trips, it was nice to bring something home that others can enjoy. I suspect the few flowers here will be gone by the time I get another opportunity, so I'm grateful this visit paid off. There's more images from here when things turned more red, but I'll save them for later so you don't get bored too soon ;-)

Thank you for your visit and best wishes on your own photo journeys!
