california winter : country road

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 7 February 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A meandering country road at twilight is accented with golden mustard and tangled thistles and a giant guardian oak.
Ah, the town versus the country....today I'll take the country.

joemulligan from United States

I love the accentuated coloring. The clear gold sky above reflected in the grass below. The rising line of the hill in the downswooping fence line. That jagged old tree echoed in the jagged plants below. Powerful image, Dulcie!!!

Florence from Paris, France

How poetic once again, with this view leading to space and nature on the righ side and on the left, the road and the traffic jam, lights, urban jungle. What a contrast !

@Bob Towery: A few miles off....Bolinger Canyon road in San Ramon. Thanks for your comment, Bob. :-)

Ann Keiffer from United States

Every day it gets harder to choose just one favorite. This one reminds me of an earlier favorite but with the addition of some civilization. There are so many directions in this image, to the left, around the hill, upwards to the sky, coming toward me. I feel like I have to hang on.

Carla from San Jose, United States

Cecile Langelier from Canada

Magnificent...... it's almost as though the picture is plugged into an electric current that is illuminating it from within..... slightly surreal.
