Local Natives

Rainy days don't happen too often in Orange County, so when I felt the rain start to pour (OC pour = light drizzle) last week, I walked out to a local hill and watched as the beauty unfolded around me, double rainbow and all. I ended up loving the atmosphere created by the backlit mist as the sun sank low, so I slapped on my telephoto and photographed some native trees catching the light. This scene really opened up my eyes to the beauty that can be found right within my community (which I always felt was too developed to experience any nature in).

PS those little streaks through the image are raindrops :)
