Engelmann Oaks (3 photos)

I visited Santa Ysabel Open Space Preserve again yesterday afternoon. It is really one of my favorite places – the rolling hills with Engelmann and Coast Live Oaks everywhere are a treat for the eye. After the long and dry summer, the grass is all dry and of a very light, pale beige – like hay. Cattle are grazing there, and after sunset, deer come out of hiding too. Very peaceful and beautiful.

For more black & white trees, also have a look at my “Arbres Monochromatique” gallery.

  1. My vote goes to the bottom two. But, on all three the way the backlight shows through and the branches are revealed as veins and capillaries is really nice.

    1. Thank you Joseph. I went for just the third one; I like the first one very much too, but it’s always difficult to separate personal feelings from a photo freshly made. :)
