SkyWatch Friday / Old Wagon in the Snow - Oak Glen, California USA

Click on photo to enlarge!
Our family enjoyed a snow-day on Monday at Oak Glen, California.
We were delighted the snow level from our last storm dumped the pretty white stuff on the lower elevations of our local mountains.
No "serious" mountain driving was necessary.
Oak Glen is a beautiful little valley full of apple orchards.
I have seen this old wagon many times but, finally, I got a shot of it in the snow.
It was a beautiful sunny day...which means this snow will be gone in a very short time.

Oh, how nice! And, Carolyn, I drove down to the Salton Sea today. I had to take half a day off school for a meeting and I got out early, so down I drove and drove. Man, it's a long way down there! It was cloudy, so I'm not sure how my photos came out. Did you stop at the visitor center? I did and bought a couple of books.

Lovely composition!
I could see this hanging on my wall Carolyn. :) It really speaks to my country girl heart.
We haven't had snow for a couple of weeks so I think spring is finally on its way here.

Arija said...

There is so much going on in your shot with the colours and age of the wagon and the dynamics of the shooting clouds in the blue sky.

You did a remarkable job on this post. It is a great shot of the old wheel in the snow. Just enough of pretty blue sky in the background. Very nice blog and post.

This is a beautiful shot for so many reasons I couldn't possibly list, but one is the antique wagon in the snow reminds me of an old western movie, but the angle at which you captured the sky behind it, literally took my breath away.
I hope to be as good a photographer as you one day.
