Lightfalls – a series of photographs of sunlight breaking through the clouds at the Lake Henshaw basin, near Warner Springs (former Rancho Valle del San Jose and Rancho San Jose del Valle – yes, two rather identical names for two Mexican land grants that were adjacent to each other). I made these photos from the vista point on Palomar Mountain’s East Grade Road during a visit to San Diego’s back country in October, when a storm moved through.

I called it “Lightfalls” because the light poured through the rapidly moving clouds much like a waterfall, sprinkling the landscape with dapples of light here and there, in fleeting moments. I was lucky to capture a few of them in a very short time to form this little series.
