Wide Open Spaces

Was driving in the Antelope Valley (northern Los Angeles County) near the poppy fields and saw these beautiful winter clouds with the mountains in the background and could not resist stopping and taking a picture. Having spent my life in different areas of the United States I am continually amazed at how big of a vista you can see in California. In certain areas of the country you can hardly see even a mile at at time because of buildings, hills, trees, or whatever blocking your view.

Used a Nikon D100 and a 12-24mm lens for this photograph.

  1. I know that area well from my frequent trips to Mammoth. I am always amazed and what happens in that area that bring the clouds, sky, and land together. I have stopped many times, this is a great image. The sunset must have been great that day.

  2. Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately I could not wait around for the sunset, you can bet it was a good one.
