Scapes from the Gold Country

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Philippe Roger, Nov 27, 2005.

  1. The Sierra foothills in California is known as the Gold Country, and although there is still gold to be found, the real gold is in "them thar hills" and in the light, IMHO

    Beautiful pictures - my favorite is #3 - the clouds really make this picture stand out.
  8. Great series but for me the last two are great the third one the cloud formation over the tree is a great composition and I love the muted colors of the last one. Thanks for sharing

    I like #3 alot. Normally I dont like photo with lots of sky. but the clouds fills out and balance nicely.

  10. That's a sweet set of pictures, Philippe! This one's my favorite:

  11. I too like image #3 the best. the clouds are dramatic and the little tree seems to be standing all alone against mother nature.
  12. I second most of the other's opinion. #3 is a killer shot.
  13. Thanks all for your thoughtful comments: they are much appreciated. :smile:

    That cloud formation came and went pretty quickly. I had to hurry hup with the tripod on the shoulder to get in position, adjust the settings and try a few different compositions...
