"California Oak"
Location: Joseph D Grant State Park, California.

There is something very captivating about the branching of an oak tree. During spring when the hills are green here in California and the oak tree has not yet sproutted new leaves, it is a great time to photograph it. On this particular day the air was crisp and late evening light was illuminating the tree against interesting backdrop of passing clouds.
