Pull Up a Chair & Set a Spell... Truckee, CA
This is one of the images I shared on tonight's Trey's Variety Hour, as part of the 'What Have You Been Up To Lately' conversation.

This spot is at a private residence here in Truckee, CA. I was driving by and I noticed this golden glow off to the right. I stopped my car and peered over the side... and down in a little glen by the river was this home and its stunning yard that, strangely, I had never noticed before. It's situated kind of down from eye level, so that you really wouldn't give it a second glance. Until it lights up in gold! It was morning, and surprisingly, it took me about 5 minutes to work up the nerve to knock on the door. A sleepy looking gentleman answered - who assured me I hadn't woken him up - and so very kindly gave me access to his yard, with my tripod and backpack full of gear! Oh, I had a field day! In between just staring at all this gorgeousness and gasping at the color and vibe of the place - I photographed every angle I could think of. When I was done, I hated to leave. But, as squatters are frowned upon in modern society, I sadly packed up and left. 

I'm actually having a print made from the one in this link:  http://goo.gl/yVong and may include the one you're seeing here, just so I can gaze at it on cold winter days and feel the warmth of that glowing glen, that one magical day when I had courage enough to ask for what I really wanted.

Sometimes asking the right questions is the hardest - and most important thing of all! :)

Taken with my Canon 5DIII and brand spankin' new 24-70ii f/2.8. I'm going to post more about that SOON!

I never thought I'd see a Flashmob performance of Carmina Burana. Neat.
