California Dreaming

Point Lobos Morning
To say that California is a trove of topographic diversity puts it mildly.  With Mediterranean, Alpine, and three desert ecosystems to mention just a few the Golden State has about every kind of terrain you could want.  In the course of three trips there since November I’ve spent five weeks seeing just a fraction of its bounty and reckon I'll be back for more. So much state and so little time.
 
Within this wide array reside two iconic photographic locations, Point Lobos on the Central Coast and Zabriskie Point in Death Valley.  Both have lured generations of photographers most notably Edward Weston at Point Lobos just a football throw away from his house on Wildcat Hill.
Zabriskie Point
Here are three images from a week ago, one from Point Lobos, one from Zabriskie Point and one from the oak flecked hills above Carmel Valley.  The soft shouldered meadows of California’s Central Valley represent the Golden State like nothing else to me.   They may lack the drama of the shore and desert but they color my first childhood memories in Salinas and San Leandro.
Oaks and Meadow, Coastal Range
Remember to click on the images to see them full size.  The tall state needs a big screen.

These photographs definitely scream "CALIFORNIA!" From the oak trees to the crenulations in the earth so indicative of earthquake country, the images are a representation of what makes the Golden State magical.

Of market and keyword research, but I still just played the roulette wheel and thought, hmmm... I think someone would be looking for "network promotion." I found out, that roulette was not the way to win, at least not continually. Recently, I learned that publishing on your weblog 2 periods per 7 days is sufficient for when you employ SEO ways of rank on Google. Now, here's the .
