A Look Back—Easton Orchard

Photograph of an orchard, clouds, trees and farmland in Easton, CaliforniaRealizing that I have nearly 94,000 images in my catalog, I decided it was time to do some pruning. My catalog stretches back to 2003. I found familiar landscapes and an early interest in natural beauty and interesting light. I also came across shots I had forgotten about. This was taken on a cold afternoon in December, 2003, in Easton, California.
