Still Life

My ride home from work is a beautiful, if grueling, 30 miles that meanders through a full representation of Californian landscapes. It begins with the dry farms and symmetrical vineyards of Morgan Hill, moves on to the cool forested valleys beneath Mount Madonna, continues through lush rain forest, entering fog towards its peak – the final resting place of the moist air moving in from the ocean. Descending on the far side of the mountain down narrow twisting roads, its green fields fields front the ocean’s horizon
and well beyond its roads, the sun settles down over the water. Approaching the coast, Eucalyptus trees line its paths, their leaves coating the asphalt beneath. As if posing for my camera, gophers, jays, hawks, deer and snakes motionlessly take their place against this impressive back drop.
