The First of Four

Flowering Sage I'm getting four photos ready for the Lincoln Hills Fine Art Association Art Show on February 22. This striking image of a Flowering Sage in in the late afternoon is a good example of vibrant colors and unique aromas that you can find in the desert. The Owens Valley is high desert. Sage is everywhere; in sandy, rocky stretches, on hills and mountains, and especially on river banks. The Owens River is a great place to go fishing, but an even better place to encounter the beauty and color of Nature. On this day, the bright sun getting low to the horizon gave glittering sparkles to the ripples in the river, and gave an extra warm glow when backlighting the already brilliant yellow flowers on this sage plant. Contrasting values, hues, and intense color stopped me. I love bright, brilliant color. This photo will be one of four going into the Art Show.
