An Old Friend

Black Oak at Laguna Meadows, Laguna Mountains, California, United States

An Old Friend — Meadows, Laguna Mountains, CA. April 2014.

To hikers on the Big Laguna Trail, where it connects Big Laguna with Water of the Woods, this Black Oak is a familiar sight, prominently sitting on a little knoll with boulders and bushes. I’ve hiked past it many times and always find it an attractive photo subject. On this afternoon in April 2014, the light was especially nice, partly filtered by clouds, soft, beautiful. On some occasions, it may actually be true that photography is “all about the light.”
