First of a Three Part Series
Two days of hard rain had fallen here and when I stepped out of my motel and into the predawn morning - Jupiter was shinning to the west and I sensed this day could start with a dramatic sunrise. Experience told me just were to go.
Remember my 2009 Fine Art Nude posting of a lovely model - Tru Talise, gazing up at a yellow arrow road sign, standing along a narrow road that ran by a channel of water? I took that image from a bridge and knew that was where I would await this dawn.
Here is that earlier nude image:
(always worth a second viewing - one of my favorites)
Today's photograph as well as the next two were taken on Wednesday from a bridge over Mad River Slough in Humboldt County. The same spot where I shot that nude image. This current series were taken facing east - rather than south in the earlier effort.
I mention all of this to say that the sign that Tru was looking up at is gone. Judging from the tire tracks upon the rain soaked levee - this happened recently. There were more tracks in the mud just beyond. I suspect that they are from the tow truck that extricated the unfortunate motorist's vehicle.
And so it goes...
