I am always looking at the countryside when I drive, usually to the dismay of my wife. On a recent trip to see my mother up in Los Osos, CA, I was driving down the California Coast to LAX to fly back to Houston. Today I was  without a passenger to watch over me. The farms, vineyards and vistas along the way are part of my distracted driving issues…..Hun, if you had been with me I would have agreed to let you drive, honestly! If only I could pick up my little backyard farm plot and drop it off in the Santa Maria area or anywhere north to Cambria Pines I would be a happy camper. At least I can dream!

One spot that has always caught my eye on the drive along Highway 101 is the Arroyo Hondo bridge, part of the “old” Highway 101. Today was the day to stop and look around. Several things caught my eye…the bridge was one and it always had, The other was the sunlight in the bristles of some local vegetation. So, here are a few shots to capture what caught my eye. Enjoy.

I love the way the light gets caught up in the bristly head.
