Another picture, taken nearly 4 years ago when I was just learning how to handle a camera. I have no idea what camera I used – no raw data files in the directory. The colors in the original were pretty drab SOOC, so I tried to do something to them. The colors are less intense than what I like, but it does match the mood of that day. It was taken in November, when all the grasses have dried, but before the winter rains begin. The landscape has a neutral quality to it, yet, if you look, there is also color, though very subtle. What I did accomplish was contrast between fore and background, and an increase of textural detail, which is such a part of the California landscape in the hills.
