Looking tropical but actually shot in the Central Valley of California.
Harris Ranch is a working cattle ranch but also a tourist stop and high caliber hotel with two restaurants, a gift shop and conference facilities. Popular locally as a place to hold wedding receptions.
Sophisticated yet Western theme decor. We always stop here on our way from Santa Barbara to Lake Tahoe.

This is not typical, but I shot this image on a beautiful day in their parking lot, looking up at the palm trees and sky.

Shot with my iPhone! May 31, 2012.

    Lovely capture.

  • Thank you, Dlouise! We were only an hour into a week-long vacation and this was the first and probably one of the best shots of the week – taken from a gas station!!! LOL!
    Cordially, Ellen
