I took this photograph near Caliente, California. I have always liked the area for landscape and small wildlife photography. This is open ranch land. Most of the year, the hills are the classic California tawny color, but sometimes in the spring, if the rain has been good, the hills turn a beautiful green. On this particular day, the weather was not cooperating and the light was grey and flat, but for just a minute, a gap in the clouds opened up and let some beautiful evening light shine across the hills. I like the way the light makes the hills look like something out of an illustrated storybook.
