Nature was on stunning display today in the Salinas Valley today.
Imagine sitting in a bowl. On one side are velveteen, green, upland pastures and the other side are broody, violet shadows of high mountain forests. Rain clouds are rising columns that support a dome of light and dark shadows overhead!
Within the bowl, new life pulsates. Tiny cupped cotyledons and unfurling grape leaves become glowing, chartreuse dots under a murky, stormy sky.
All is drama and contrast.
