Home in a sea of trees

I’m taking a Photography course through WordPress.  I will be posting photos on my blog, “I’m Over the Hill” whenever each assignment is posted.

Our first assignment:  What does Home look like or mean to you?

I’ve chosen a picture that I took on an early morning hike in the hills above our neighborhood.  The sun was low on the horizon and cast an interesting glow.  Although we live in a large city, San Jose, California, we are surrounded by open space in the Sierra Azul and Santa Cruz Mountains.  You can just make out downtown in the distance.  Below that sea of trees is my neighborhood.  Somewhere down there is our home.

I’m looking forward to improving my photography skills through this course!

If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.

    • You hit the nail on the head. The more shots I take outdoors, the more I am beginning to understand the power of the quality of the light to transform a shot into something really interesting.

      As always, your comments are very much appreciated!
