Hill above Ukiah CA

Crossing the mountains from Mendocino CA to Ukiah somewhere on route 283, I rolled down the window in the backseat and shot the rolling landscape.  The roadside grasses are just blurred from the motion. I was on a quick swing through California for work, not in charge of the schedule, and I had to seize every picture op. Smile This was my first trip to CA in full summer and the mountains took on a whole new look!

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent, f4 @ 1/800th @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

Cropped in Lightroom for composition. Some Recovery for the sky, Fill Light and Blackpoint barely right, added Clarity and Vibrance, Sharpen narrow edges preset.

From Zeiss Trip CA 2010.

    Like it. The colours are great.

    Horizon and dip in foreground slope – text book rule of thirds.
