REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Above the Valley

Life in a valley means I must go "up" to get a good landscape view.  It's often frustrating, but it's necessary.  There are areas I return to on a regular basis:  Cemetery Road to the southeast, Fish Trap and Cricket Flat to the northeast, Palmer Junction to the north...whichever one I choose, it's more than two miles of driving.  As a matter of fact, Cemetery Road is the only location within two miles.  The road runs through fenced farmland, and I love wire fences.  This particular fence and gate have been in the viewfinder of my camera many times, whatever the season. It's a great place to see the wonderful cloud displays we take for granted in this part of the state.

I love this capture, so much to drink in.
We live in a bowl, with mountains all around us. I understand needing to go out and up for views.

Wow, I don't recall seeing this one on FB. Those leaning, weathered posts always get my attention. And that sky! Oh my. :)

A view like this is definitely worth the trip, Evelyn.
That sky is gorgeous, and I love the fence in the foreground.
