Calm before the next rain storm and I was looking up through the trees at the sky. Switching to black and white mode made for moody oaks and some cool patterns.
I haven’t been out shooting this past month but it gives me the opportunity to revisit some of my past adventures from earlier this year. I enjoy a good walk in the forest. The trees and flora paint a pretty picture in colors and textures.
Along the highway some properties are defined by stone walls.
Took another side road along highway 4 a few weekends ago. Nobody was on this oak lined road, except for a few cows looking at the crazy driver. I think, I need to come back here before sunset or night and see what other photos I can get from this location.
When I have the time, I like to take the back roads home. Last Sunday, I took Hunt Road off of highway 4 and it meanders through Calaveras county and opens to a valley. Along the way I cut over to Rock Creek Road and I spied this bird in an old oak tree by a stream. It was fairly large and as you can see mostly white from the vantage point I had from the road. It seemed to have its watchful eye on the landscape in front of it.
