Lake Berryessa & Napa Valley
It is hard to predict exactly what the weather may bring…happened upon a rainy day with spurts of showers and sunshine. Perfect for enjoying the Napa Valley and the journey there!
I see this as simply an opportunity to scope out another visit. This concrete formation pulls water in from the lake and has no noise–due to the engineering–the sound travels straight up, according to a source who has visited it before in it’s glory! You can see how much higher the water in the lake needs to be in order to cover the “Glory Hole” .
We drove from Davis to Napa via backroads and had the pleasure to catch some wet beauties along the way!
Stepped out into a huge puddle of mud getting out at this location…turns out it was worth it!
For the barn shots–started to absolutely pour rain. Thank goodness my D300s is hearty!
Advantageous to look where you are about to step…found this “under foot”.
The fun of being with another photographer is twofold–you both see the same opportunities along the road and want to stop! Then, when you get there–you “see” and “create” different images! These next 3 shots were taken in the same location–pretty certain it was the vast amount of yellow flowers that caught our eye!
When on a photo journey and not the driver–my camera is usually in my lap. Was able to get a couple decent shots right out of the window:)
Think this is one of my favorites–what a great ending to a wonderful day!
Beautiful photos, Laura!!! I enjoyed them all! Loved the one colored leaf among all the brown ones though. 🙂

Laura, wonderful blog post with fantastic photos! All images are great but I was especially taken with the golden leaf, lacy vegetation and “caught in a glow” photographs. A delight to view your blog, as always!
