Local Residents

Concerned residents AGAIN stopped and asked if I was having car trouble when all I was doing was walking and photographing. That shows how remote the area is and residents worry about other people. I can tell they were on their way to spend a day at the lake -- the kayak on the car's roof was a clear indication .

This amazing canyon survived the "Camp Fire"

15 May 2019 3 1 53
The town of Paradise, CA sits on top of the plateau I'm standing, approx just 3 miles away and last November the "Camp Fire" completely flattened the town and another 150.000 acres(approx 600 square kilometers). But the fire did not run across this canyon. You can see some fire damage but not utter devastation that occurred elsewhere en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camp_Fire_(2018) .

Cruising through Napa-Valley

16 May 2019 3 43
On the side of the road, these wildflowers benefit from the irrigation & fertilizer used in the vineyards. And at the same time no one is mowing them down as they are outside thee fence of the property and right next to the road. Not a good place for a photographer to be -- but a good place to survive as a flower. . G7x IMG 5343 bib © Copyright 2019, All rights reserved - Post a link, do not copy or embed.

Serenity Now !!

Very scenic while it lasts -- soon the sun will have dried out the grass. Unless the cows don't eat it first. currently they are in a field only a mile away. .

It's not all "Silicone" -- you can find open pastures tucked in between hills. . G7x IMG 5298 bib © Copyright 2019, All rights reserved - Post a link, do not copy or embed. Contact me, if you want to use it in your blog or publication or if you want a print

Straddler or Leader of the Pack ?

06 Jun 2019 50
Is this lone bushel at the forefront of the flowers covering the valley floor ? Or is the last lone straddler left behind ? I was happy to encounter this as most areas very inaccessible behind fences or across from the irrigation canal. .
