iPhoneography Challenge: Nature

greenhills

Nature, here in the area of Northern California where I live, changes from season to season. Spring brings us the beautifully bucolic scene like that above. The photo was captured with my iPhone from the car, as we descended from the Altamont Pass into the East Bay of San Francisco’s most eastern side.

Spring greenery quickly changes with the warming sun and winds that blow through here; but, still, nature at its best in just another version

Yesterday, as we drove home from the East Bay, the freeway became a parking lot as firefighters battled a blaze along a hillside next to the road; most probably caused by a careless person tossing a cigarette out the window of their car.  Nature is such a delicate balance

We are grateful for those who try to preserve and protect

  5. I adore Northern California. These are a heartfelt image–both in what the land gives and takes away. When we lived in Southern California, the end of the summer wildfires were too close for comfort. Happy iPhonoegraphy Challenge.

      Thanks, Sally. The views of the Altamont and the valley as we come down into Livermore is something that thrills me every time…and we drive that route a lot. The summer wildfires are so scary, so brutal.

    Wish people would stop to think of the consequences of their carelessness.

    California does have some really beautiful spots, Angeline. And that coastline is truly one of a kind. Thanks for sharing a bit of it with us Mid-Western Folk, among others. 🙂

  9. I have a cousin that fights fires like this one and they sure deserve all the recognition we can give. Such a dangerous job. You got some great pictures from your car window!
