CBWC: CA & AZ Landscapes & Fields

Most of us in the photo challenge world have been playing with trees this month for Becky B’s #TreeSquares. I love to cover lots of challenges with one post so I don’t overwhelm my friends. Today, I’m going to cover trees in two posts today, a regular #TreeSquare and CBWC. Tomorrow I’ll post Sunday Stills, but the pictures won’t all be square. Becky’s posts need at least ONE square photo.

California Landscapes and Fields

Willow Dot wrote a poem for Scardy Cat in the comments. I love it! I’m revising my post to add it here.

Scardy Cat
braving foggy dawn
in white spats

it’s man and machine
vying with mother nature
taking her bounty.

misty morning scene
mighty mountains, lakes and trees
monochrome beauty.

Another Tule Fog morning in the foothills

Have a Challenging Sunday. By that I mean, enjoy lots of challenges. See you here and there. πŸ™‚

    • That was an old one, but it popped up when I searched fields. I love it too. Great clouds and a machine we don’t see every day. Visalia used to be a top cotton producer, but it takes so much water that they gave it up.


  2. Your B&W’s are amazing. Marsha! I love the tule fog shot with that mist. Well-captured! And I agree that the first image is spectacular–a good image for an ag ad! Hope all is well my friend! My dad and step-mom will be here later today to spend the week with us–can’t wait!

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
