I took this photo in the eastern Sierras, off Highway 395, at the Owens Gorge Road. I love those mailboxes and every time we travel to the Sierras, we drive by them just to see them!

Lone oak tree~SkyWatch Friday 070110


We passed by this lone oak tree this morning leaving Merced for northern California. I liked how it stood alone in a field of golden grasses. We've had a high pressure system over California now for several days without any clouds and none are forecast for some time. Maybe during our monsoon months of July and August they will return, although one August, when we came through this same area, lightning from the storms caused several wildfires!

That is a beautifully shaped tree! I sure hope the fires are few this year.

Great composition! I like the lone oak standing strong amidst the brown grasses with the pale blue sky above.

At first I thought the oak tree was in the desert! That grass is sandy-colored, for sure! Have a great Holiday Weekend!

I think only Californians call the grasses "golden"... most folks I know call them dried up and brown :) Nice piccie.
