I never know when Mother Nature will appear in my work. And I've discovered that she's done it again!
This morning, while flipping thru photos, I discovered that Mother Nature has sneaked her way into my work again. I'm always amazed when that happens, I don't do it on purpose.
Isn't that the most beautiful view! It's Hwy 70 along the Feather River. I've driven up and down this highway for 15 years and each time the view amazes me!
Here's what Lynn Campbell, Sierra Nevada Geotourism (bit.ly/2sA8amh) has to say about the Canyon:
"Few California highways feature such natural beauty and diversity in terrain, landscape, wildlife and elevation as the Canyon Route. Cascading waterfalls and wildflowers in the spring and brilliant colors in the fall highlight the canyon’s natural beauty. The area also showcases the marvels of power plant, railroad and highway engineering between the steep, rugged canyon walls that drop down to the North Fork of the Feather River. The historic Pulga and Tobin bridges -- highway and railroad bridges that cross over each other --and three tunnels blasted through granite are among the most frequently photographed sites. Seven hydroelectric powerhouses make up the “Stairway of Power” along the river with excellent views of the process in action."
Read the article, and you'll see why we love coming up to Plumas County. It's incredible up here!
And the colors, oh the incredible colors, I just soak them in during each drive. Browns, greens, grays, reds, blues, Mother Nature at it's finest.
One day, while driving down the Canyon, we stopped to take some photos and stumbled onto a ladybug orgy. Yes, you read that right! Here's the story; bit.ly/2rIsrpE
It was embarrassing and fascinating at the same time. I didn't realize, though, that what I would take away from this experience was new colorways. See, take a look.
Look at Kevin's cowl! (he's the one point to it) It turns out the colors of the rock outcrop near the ladybug orgy match his new cowl I created for him!
Oh Mother Nature, I love it when you do that.
