Mother River

We are so lucky to live in a beautiful river valley.

It was an exquisite sunset last night. 

Driving home on the narrow canyon road I had to stop the car and take a look back at the setting sun reflecting on the Santa Margarita River below.

The river banks are thick with sycamore, oak, sumac, toyon and manzanita. A couple of washingtonia palms and eucalyptus invaders are thrown in for good measure.

I am extraordinarily grateful for the thirty years I have lived on its bank.

Lovely shot, Robert. We feel the same...so fortunate to be here above the valley, but not so far and can hear the river after the rain.
