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.
A Walk In The Forest
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.
Stone Walls and Old Oaks
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.
Oak Shadows and Sunlight
Out for a morning walk in Calaveras County, near the Mokelumne River yesterday. Rolling hills and oaks in shadow with the sun light peeking through.
Went for a walk in the forest and this lichen’s color stood out against this old stump.
Covered in Snow
The recent bad weather brought much needed rain and snow to the Tahoe basin. You can see the amount of snow that covers this pine bough.
