The 4 month rainy season is ending in California. So I thought I better hike into the hills behind my house and take in some of the landscape before the grass turns golden brown and the clouds disappear for the summer. Also, the oak leaves will get darker so this is the best time to photograph the oaks too. There was so much green that I had to desatureate this a bit to get more fine detail.
So I waited for an evening with some decent light and saw this scene. The big version is 1535x650, so have a look at the big sized panorama.
I spent a while walking around to get the best composition. It was especially difficult to fit the foreground tree on the right into a good spot.
I hope to have some time this week to catch up on what has been happening around here. I see a new 'fast' epz beta version that does look very fast indeed!
