Painterly Sky and California Oak

I love simple scenes like this especially when I'm lucky enough to get a colorful palette for a sky. Many times when I am out with my camera I'm simply looking for color. The tree and the rolling hills were added as a visual anchor and gives the scene a sense of scale and a place for the eye to rest. I made this image near my home in central California in the rolling hills of the Diablo Range. To see more of my landscape, sports and celebrity images, pleae visit my website at
