Danville CA ~ Mt. Diablo Foothills

We don't have the wonderful snows of some regions, but after our rains, we have glorious green rolling hillsides. For emphasis, I added one of my textures to vignette this shot .

beautiful colors! I really like the greens, and the texture in the sky! I was at alum rock park in san jose today, and boy is it green, I don't ever remember the hills ever so green! (also the creek is out of control) The trails were muddy, and I came home with mud on almost everything (pants, camera, etc). it was so much fun, and totally worth it in the end (:

Magnificent!!! Looks to me like the hills made love with the rain and you had the fortune and the skill to capture the after-glow.

Nice St. Patrick's day touch...still green green hills yet the vignette? I called it grainy look is quite special on this shot. The view from your friend's home? Nice studio to shoot from, eh?
