These pics were taken between Oakhurst and Jackson, CA It was so blazing hot that day, that “everything looked and “felt” Sun Burnt. Also, this drive back home on highway 49 (main highway of the Gold Rush that made “the American Dream” so famous, was kinda trippy …
because it went against what I like or admire, but nevertheless,
I found beauty in spite of my natural instincts.
THE GOOD: A blast of the past.
See that door? Wonder if it had been kicked in too many times, and they got tired of it …

When trees wither and die is pretty much okay with me. Not so okay with burnt trees, because often man cause the fires, except for lightening strikes of course. Noticed with this pic above I had to restrain myself (with Photoshop) not to beautify it.
Darkened the photo of the flower below, to fit this post and called it Sun burnt. There’s a beauty also to rugged, worn or even withered things, eh?

We looked through the trees at this lake and saw it would be quite a walk down to the Water, and worse, back up again!
THE FUN: Discovered that it is much harder to find good reflections in rural areas. Going through Jackson-Sutter Creek – famous for the gold rush – the second hand book store.
This was an all-good day! Quite different from yesterday night. We had one of these storms where the thunder was so loud that the house shook and the sound reverberated through your body (this comes from a person – moi -who has never been afraid of lightening and thunder).
Found hubby in the living room enjoying the spectacle of (as he said), “a hundred lightening strikes.”
Guess that’s one of the difference between men and women?
Home at Sunset when both hubby and I run across the street to get at least a few shots. This is a rare One from Cerulean Blue on top to blueish Grey, and from a pinkish peach to an orangy Ochre on the bottom.
Is it day, night, or both?
