A Hillside Near Gazelle

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 8 October 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Siskiyou County - California

This is really rural northern California. Gazelle has a population of 136.
Mount Shasta - the beautiful volcano that sands as a lone sentinel over this valley is directly behind me here.

One of my favorite photos of Mount Shasta was taken near this spot and I just discovered I'd never posted it here. I'll fix that tomorrow.

A breathtaking landscape here, just superb. It almost seems to
be evolving as we look at it, the grass seems to move. You have
proved a master out of S.F. also !

Solitude and natural beauty in this shot... I like the fact that this is an image of (almost) two colors only... Great DOF and comp with the rock forming an interesting foreground.

More than just a landscape . . there are dreams here in all that open space - and room for them to grow. Superb (and holding on for your 'favorite' !).

@Susan: No problem Susan - but you had me laughing to think that you'd actually been through Gazelle! Thanks for all the good words.
