It was a gorgeous day today in the Sacramento Valley. The Snow Geese were enjoying the sun as well. This is looking west towards the Coast Range.

A little wider view. You'd never know it but Interstate Hwy 5 is just behind the tree line. It's the major Interstate that goes from the Mexican boarder to the Canadian border, about 1500 miles. I kept waiting for the large tractor-trailer trucks to go behind the trees so they wouldn't be in the picture. You have no idea how many trucks pass up and down that route.

The first photo with the flying geese--Wow! This is a masterpiece that should be on the wall. Absolutely gorgeous..

I actually like #2 best, as the birds in #1 are too far in the distance to really appreciate. Nice work.

Default Beautiful!

Serene and friendly colored scene, with lots to look at. Very nice. I love the transistion from warm to cool, front to back, in nice separet layers. The snowgeese on the water look like icing on a cake!

Great shot!
