Creekside rocks and plants
south of Markleeville, California
California is an urban state, but not uniformly so. Alpine County, south of Lake Tahoe, is geographically large, but has
only about 1500 residents. It has beautiful wild scenery.

This shot was almost directly into the sun. I used the technique of using one hand to cast a shadow on the lens, looking
through the viewfinder the shadows darken notably when the lens is shaded.
