  2. Beautiful! You got an interesting cloud in there too -- lucky! That first tree is my favorite. Know what kind it is?

  3. All of these photos were taken on Sunday afternoon. I loved that cloud!

    Alan, the first tree is a valley oak (Quercus lobata), the signature tree of California's Central Valley. It's been decimated by development, but every now and then you still see magnificent specimens. Apparently it has a life span of 600 years.

  4. Tis one of the wonderful things about winter, it lets us see the structure of all the great trees in town. We have a lot of Gary Oaks in Victoria and they have the most gnarly branches, come spring you'd never be able to tell with all the foliage. A very nice montage of photos indeed.
