A bunch of white wild flowers basking in late evening light.
I usually go out for a walk/run in the evening in one of the many bike trails that are around here in Folsom. A particular section of the trail is my favorite. It has such interesting elements, a crazy oak tree, tall grass that grows in the spring, some flowers in spring, a bridge over a little pond, the water in the pond stays only during the winter and early spring months, some birds that take advantage of this water, beautiful grass that grows in the water. So I thought I could spend an evening around here photographing anything that catches my attention.
The above shot is just one of many that I have and will post soon. I saw this bunch of white flowers that were getting a good dose of the late evening low angled light. The landscape surrounding it was interesting as well, there was uneven growth in the grass which created a dynamic play of shadow and light. I hope you enjoy this delicate little intimate detail.
Looking into a telephoto lens and pointing it at just snow can reveal interesting shapes and contours. These shapes are created by nothing but light, shadow and the uneven snow surface. I initially stopped my car near the El Capitan meadow to shoot some of the black oaks, with snow lining up on their branches. But then when I looked down at the icy landscape below my feet, these interesting shapes created by the low angled light temped me to create this abstract design.

Wishing every one Happy Holidays and a prosperous New Year ahead. Hope we all get to see nature’s brilliant, spectacular shows in the future. May the light gods continue to cast beautiful light on the landscape in the coming years as well.
