Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge ~ Nature in Northern California


I drove out onto the back roads in the hills around me yesterday for a little peace and contemplation. The hills never fail to provide me with a sense of serenity. As per my usual routine, I get in the car and just drive, letting my muse lead me to find the location I need to be in to find that peace and beauty.


There are pockets of green in the little valleys, and bits of water that remain from the last rain we had. Those bits of green are quickly disappearing.

    You took these shots with a phone? These shots are gorgeous, colorful, clear. What phone? I just bought my first smartphone…haven’t take a photo yet. But that’s the main reason I bought it. That, and for travel.

    Beautiful Angeline! Must be nice to be able to get out of town and into such solitude and beauty.


  11. Angeline, what relaxing photos! I pray that rain will come soon.



    • Angeline M says:

      Thanks, Janet. I fear there will be no more rains. Our usual rainy season is winter; but, we’ve had a couple of rogue little rains recently that may indicate our seasonal rain time is changing.

  13. Angeline, you found a perfect place for a respite. I did notice those “golden” hills, as they’re called when the rain has eluded them. But they are equally lovely to behold. You are fortunate to have such beauty nearby. Happy Photo Challenge.


    • Angeline M says:

      Thank you, Sally. Yes, the golden hills are just as beautiful to me as when they’re green; each brings its own beauty. I do count myself as blessed to live here and have this beauty all around.
