Rice Elevators to The Sky

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 8 October 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Near Esparto, California - along the western edge of the Sacramento Valley.

Here begins another series of images. Every once in awhile, I find I've been at the computer too many days in a row without touching the cameras and I suddenly need to run and explore. This was one of those times.

With the promise of a full harvest moon yet to rise - I zoomed over the Bay Bridge heading east this past Sunday afternoon. These photographs were from that impromptu outing.

A wonderful composition here, Stephen. I like the angle and how you devide the picture in a sky-part and a silo-part. Amazing colors!

A really auspicious beginning. The way your lens hugs the upward move here, and catches the sense of height of this elevators is impressive. It leaves me wanting to see more...

@susan: Hi there Susan - thanks - hope the 'moon shot' doesn't disappoint. The moon rose straight into a cloud and had lost that large orange look before it popped out above the top. So the image - as well as the location is - well - - - unusual...

I see the nice angle portrayed here as well as the patterns.
