Road, Fence, Oaks. Tonzi Road, Ione, California. January 23, 2011. © Copyright Steven Tze – all rights reserved.
Not all photo excursions result in majestic landscapes, but sometimes it’s useful to pick up the camera and start shooting. Whether that mean shooting flowers and insects in the yard or taking a quick drive after work. Fortunately for me, I’m surrounded by hills of rolling scrub oak.
On this particular afternoon, I started driving along a little used road in the area dotted with occasional ranches. The relatively cloudless sky didn’t provide the best landscape lighting, but at least there were some clouds near the horizon to provide some texture to this photograph.
Given the general lack of colors in this scene with mainly greens and browns, I elected to desaturize the green, leaving only the browns in the photo.
