nice to sea such marvelous californian sky, specially when behind the window it is pouring. Interesting these mountains, such bare, without trees.
Just the format that I like on beta - the picture fits perfectly to screen.
Warm regrads MAlgo

What an excellent place for a gas station. Most of them would be found in much uglier envirinemnts. The Californian sky looks very nice but I am equally amazed by the wrinkles of those eroded Californian hills. They have some fantastic tones of green and yellow. There's a very nice balance between earth and heaven, regardless which part one prefers to watch.

A fantastic landscape with all these creeks and small canyons. The hills seem to be modelled. Also the colours here enhance the attraction.

Your note brought a big smile to my face tonight, I remember well how you took advantage of the same opportunities during our trip. :))
What a great, wide open sky...and a smart composition which uses its simple beauty to be so effective here. Almost the perfect one to cut and paste into other pictures, yeah? :)
What I like the most is how the cloud formations appear to gel with the rolling hills and their crevasses and overall form. There's a smooth flow between land and sky, one working with the other to create a most pleasing and soothing visual.
Just make sure it looks the same in your region come the beginning of September, o.k.? :) Have a great day amigo.
Friendly wishes from the desert,

I was trying to figure out where this California location was specifically, but it could be various places throughout our San Joaquin Valley which is the huge area in central California. The lack of buildings places it obviously in a rural spot, not close to Los Angeles or San Francisco.
The low lighting enhances the lines and contours of the eroded hills.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello, a very nice view of the California mountains. This is what the interior of the state looks like.
You had a good road trip.

unusual landscape here. I like the pattern of clouds on the sky. Fine report about your trip in California.
Have a nice WE.

There's a nice sense of open space in this photo. It's what I imagine the wild west to look like. The hills have an interesting texture, too. I'm doing well, and I hope things are o.k. on your end. :-)
