Chico Creek Canyon, looking toward Chico

Posted by LauraS (Chico, United States) on 21 May 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Looking back toward Chico from Chico Creek Canyon. This is where I live. From this elevation I can see the community below with the town of Chico, Bidwell Park, the university, and our green rural orchards. In spring it is very green, with so much blossoming that everyone's allergies are in full bloom, too.

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.

To see my Spotlight images:

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Very nice composition ad depth into the horizon. Always a bit of haze in California, and we don't know if it's moisture or particulate air, but it lends a sense of mystery and a yearning for the distance. Great image!

@Bettina: Thanks, Bettina. I was thinking of you last night, as we walked down the Hollywood Walk of Fame and I saw some interesting people walking around, dancing, lots of tourists... We'll see if any of my shots come out.

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

You have a wonderful view! I'll bet that watching a storm come in is awesome!

@Tracy: Thanks, Tracy, the weather was a little unpredictable that day.

Neat; reminds me of doing the Wildflower Century a few times.
