Heading North .......



~  Gilbert Valley  ~

A drive north of the city with a good friend and photography buddy
rewarded us with big blue open skies and green fields scattered with
blossom laden trees ... lots of opportunities to
skid on the brakes and snap a few landscape shots

Linking with
"Skywatch Friday"

Very very lovely. We only get bare branches in our winters, so these are a real treat to see.

It is odd seeing flowering fruit trees at this time of year. Sometimes I forget that your hemisphere reverses the seasons.

The blossom-laden trees really add to the beauty of that first scene. The previous post was beautiful as well. I love the "daughter-of-the-wind" with the droplets of moisture bringing out the glow.

Nothing like scouting photos with a photo friend! Great view!

I think that spring may be starting to have a bit of a battle with the tail end of winter. (Winter is winner here today!)
