When camped in Mecca Hills, CA we spent a few days in the same location. Rather than go searching for new sites every day, new things to see, we stayed in one place and I instead explored the depth of different ways to see a place. What does looking at the same tree through different eyes, different lenses, different lights look like? What does it feel like? When I look at this shot and the many others of this place, it brings me back to being there in a way that just getting “that perfect shot” somewhere and moving on does not often convey.

But absolutely beautiful with a coating of snow layered over all of the branches from large to small. I kept coming back inside and adding more layers because I kept going back outside expecting “just a few more minutes” which would turn into five and then ten because it was just too beautiful to stop.

Plus, the snow banks kept my drink cold. So there’s that.
