The shot looking for a back light.
There was a slight breeze, what pink did arrive was lost when my associate was schooling me on Kelvin (noted in the other thread).
Pulled up from dark with CNX2 and NIK.
I believe this is a species of California Mountain Lilac, the woody type, not very fragrant but right now covering the range tops and canyons as one drives across from the 101 to PCH.
It will rain this week, my next shot at it for pink, hopefully with water beaded up.
This is one way to tell seasons in CA, besides the sand on the beaches, and Sycamore trees barren, willows etc. It blossoms around February. The entire range, burned out in the late 90s, and chaparral is dominant.
