I drive past this nearly every day. It is a highlight of my commute. I look forward to seeing it. Not because it is especially beautiful, although when the sun is just right, it is a lovely view. I just love the solo tree, standing all alone. It doesn’t complain. It doesn’t make excuses. It doesn’t wish it were somewhere else, doing something different. It is not affected. It can rain buckets, the sun can beat down on it from sunrise to sunset. It can be freezing cold, and the wind could be blowing fiercely. And it just stands there, through it all, just being a tree. Doing what it is meant to do. Trees make good teachers. People should be more like trees…

Located along Hwy. 49, between Auburn and the Lake of the Pines area. If you’re in the area, see it for yourself. 😊 Or you can just go to my website and see this, and more beauty, from around the Gold Country.

One of my favorite things about photography is that I can share the beauty I capture with others. One of my favorite things about the Gold Country, is that there is so much to capture. Through my lens, will be an ongoing journey. I will share with you the beauty, my travels, my experiences.
I’ve been a traveler. A wanderer. And yes, there is beauty to be found in all corners of the world. Some places have beautiful forests, some have gorgeous rivers, or mountains. Some places the beauty is in the people that reside there, or the history that lies within it. In all my travels I have not found another place that has all these things in one place. The Gold Country, set in Northern California has all these things, and more, practically within arms reach of one another. I am currently in the “heart” of the Gold Country, Nevada County. And although I have tried to move away several times, it has a magical draw to it, and I just can’t stay away very long. I don’t know if it’s the Tahoe National Forest that you can see all around it, the mighty Yuba River that runs through it, the snow capped Sierra Nevada’s that rise above it, or the wonderful, creative people that fill it. Come check it out. See for yourself. Enjoy the journey.
