The mighty Lagunitas Creek has several tributaries and one of them is the ominously named Devil's Creek.

Years ago we had a lot more Redwood trees around these parts, so it's important to appreciate the courageous souls that remain.

A showdown -- a fair fight -- between colorful water and the tall giants.

I want to go to California so badly after seeing all your pictures! It must be one of the most beautiful places in the world!

I'm glad that I don't have to pick the winner here. Gorgeous. Each one stands on its own.
Have a great weekend Don.

HI EMMY, PHOTOWANNABE SUE, AND MULLEH -- Thanks, and I'll tell you a little trick I've learned about photography -- usually I try to put the camera away, or find more suitable subjects to photograph, between the hours of about 9AM to 5PM when the light is flat.

Sorry Don, no prize this time. The picture is from the meadow near Fallen Leaf Lake, CA. its just a few miles from Lake Tahoe.
