beautiful colours here and the mist amongst the trees looks awesome! :D the little orange tree on top of the hill makes an excellent focal point in the overall composition too :clap:

Thank you so much!  It is the view from my deck - we have permission to walk the edges of the property but don't get to this hill very often as it is where the resident bulls like to hang out :laughing:  We didn't get the lovely orange against green this past autumn as we didn't get the usual rain until this month...so glad we got some recently to let things green up!Sunset on 2013 by kayaksailor

Is this a painting? Something just doesnt set right with it

No it is a photograph.  I put it through a program called Dynamic HDR which allows for tweeks in colors and textures... so in a way it is a kind of digital painting but computer created...what is it that is bothering you?

Not bothering me haha, just something i noticed. It looks very overly sharp and a bit luminous-which is making it appear to be a digital painting i guess

I know, isn't it?!!  We love it.  This is actually taken from my back deck :love: We are low in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains east of Sacramento CA.  Lake Tahoe is a little over an hour east of us...while we have about 8 acres, what this view is of is the cattle ranch we a butt to on two sides.  We love having the space (and few neighbors of the two footed kind :giggle:)

Here's the link to my "home" sub-gallery...all shots are taken within a "block" or so of my home - or right next to it :laughing:

Omg, from your deck?! That is an incredible view (and all the wildlife sightings). Color me envious! But I've always wondered how much of a hassle it is to go out and get groceries and the like, or the driving during snow/rain for people who live up on hills. But I don't think you get that much snow in Sacramento?

Did you mean the Oak Ridge folder? I'm looking at it right now, and wow, really appreciate everything in there to explore around the 8 acres. Thanks for posting and sharing these, it's cool to see where other people live, especially in areas like that.

Yes, the Oak Ridge folder is my "new" home...at 1400' we do get an inch or two of snow each winter but it is usually gone within 24 hours though the snow we got this past December, because it stayed so cold, hung around in the shade for several days.

It isn't too much of a pain to plan our trips "out" as we do have a good corner market 3 miles away.  And WalMart, Safeway etc. about 9 miles.  The biggest pain is it is we live on a mile long dirt/gravel road that we have to go up to get the mail and to leave our trash cans LOL  Down in Southern CA we always kept our cars clean, up here....not so much, :laughing:

Thanks for the visit - drop by anytime :wave:

Beautiful view. The vatness of this area . The fog looks as if it is searching for something. What country has this view?

It is a wonderful view! This is the view from the rear of my home in Northern California. We are in the foothills of the Sierras east of Sacramento. We're about an hour west of Lake Tahoe...From here we can see south all the way out into the inland San Joaquin Valley and on clear days all the way across to the Coastal Range mountains near San Francisco!

It is always changing this time of year...I just looked out the window and that big tree is now completely bare with the leaves making a circle around the base! I'm so glad I took this shot :love:

I'm kicking myself for not taking a photo last night at sunset of our wisteria vine (I'd noticed that the leaves were all gold) and now this morning they're all gone too :( Winter is here now.....
