Shadow Shot Sunday



These are the hills on the west side of our valley. On the top of them is the Santa Rosa Plateau, that I've mentioned a lot, recently; here, here, here, and here. If you are a crow, it's about 5 miles from my house. Since we're not crows, it's about a 12-15 mile drive.



I've always loved looking at these hills, just looking at their beauty. I love the way they "fold". These photos were taken early in the morning, in order to catch the shadows from the sun rising on the other side of the valley.

Shadow Shot Sunday is hosted by Hey Harriet, please go over there to see all the Shadowy people.

  1. The hills do appear to fold. And the colours are warm, which is so nice this time of year.

    I'm going to Google the Santa Rosa Plateau to find out more, if I can.

  2. These hills are peaceful to gaze upon. I can see how they would become a large part of your everyday. Watching the light and seasons move across them in their own time, marking yours.

    I lived in Santa Rosa, California a bit. I find it interesting how names are repeated so often.

  8. My brother moved back to Iowa from Santa Rosa two years ago and misses it terribly after living there 25 years. He was in the foothills on Rinaldo ST., this looks just like the view from his window...BEAUTIFUL!
