ISO 80; f/4.5; 1.200; 5mm; 8:23am (my shadow preset)
Found this shadow tree this morning while waiting for Quail to show up. As usual, I had more luck with the tree than the Quail.

Top photo is 50% of original size. Bottom photo is 1024… faster to open. Not sure which is best way to show this.
Taken this morning from BLM Short-Term Camping Area off Kuhn Rd. looking west to Dome Rock Mountain Range.
I had not ridden my bike through this area before and was surprised to find so much green scrub pine. I spent about an hour and half poking around this area, taking photos, listening to birds and ground squirrels — mainly trying to catch a quail family. I plan to return as it is easy to get to, the dirt roads are intended for RVs thus easy to ride my bike, and I only explored a fraction of what’s out there.
