Drive east from the coast and nestled between the blue Pacific and Anza-Borrego Desert, often unnoticed, rests San Diego's rural East County. Our backyard is the playground of many due to its mountains, open spaces, hiking trails and nature preserves. And, in the cooler months it becomes a photographer's canvas as clouds form and those once clear blue skies disappear for a time and allow us to capture a landscape that changes daily. Fence lines, barbed wire, wind-blown meadows, cloudscapes; the abundant decay of old things, the abandoned cars, dead trees and the occasional rusty tractor all populate our eastern edge.
In my continuing struggle to organize my images I've created an East County gallery. You can find it here: East County
