“The Cottonwood stands alone. The ever watchful and all seeing Monarch.
Strong in his solitude and vast in his wisdom.”*
Whenever I’m near Lake Henshaw, along Highway 76 to the east, I stop by this cottonwood tree and make some photos. Which mostly happens to be when some heavy weather is rolling through San Diego County. I love to be out in the back country then, to photograph the land with low hanging and dramatic clouds, trees shrouded in fog, and the fresh and glistening nature.

Also have a look at my three latest blog posts:
- Scarlet Larkspur (Delphinium cardinale)
- The Bugs like Milkweed
- Gloomy Morning at Scripps Coastal Preserve
