Photo 101 – Lone Oak


Today’s Photo 101 Assignment:  Solitude & the Rule of Thirds

I took this shot at Santa Teresa County Park while hiking on the Rocky Ridge Trail.  Yes, the trail is appropriately named!  This was on a hike back in November before the rainy season began here in Northern California.  I was actually trying to use the “rule of thirds” as I composed this shot by placing the lone oak in the upper right of the picture and the serpentine boulders in the lower left.

I also wanted to emphasize the blue sky and the Santa Cruz Mountains in the background against the dry ridge.

This is a great place to hike.  The wildflowers in the spring in this park are spectacular.

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