Nikon 995 Clouds Fence Field Mountains Sky 2002

Mountain and fence

The winter foothills of central California..

Most of this land is used to graze cattle. Running up to the hills, you'll find fruit and nut trees by the miles.

Just to the right of this scene is a private hunting reserve with lots of dire warnings posted.

The limitations of digital technology are pretty obvious here - there are JPEG artifacts in the sky, and all the crishness of the crop in the field are lost. In-person, the subtle contrasts of the sky, the softness of the mists in the hills and the light shimmering on the grasses is pretty spectacular.
