Fall Colors

While driving around our county this week, I came across this striking plant.  This beautiful plant while one of the most avoided plants around is also one of the most colorful.  Their colors are distinctive and beautiful, spring thru fall.  The dreaded Poison Oak can either grow in bush form or as a vine, wrapping itself around trees, as this one chose to do.  Appreciate their color at a VERY safe distance!  Enjoy your day!

Fall in the Sierra Nevada High Desert

Last year at this time I met with my good friends and fellow photographers Dave and Val for some photography time in the eastern Sierra-Nevada mountain range. This area is a mixture of high elevation desert and very high elevation mountains. It is a true contradiction of gorgeous, rich foliage  and dry, arid desert. This picture shows a bit of each.  The fall foliage is spectacular. Enjoy your day!
