The water level is low; the people are few and far between; and if you keep your eyes open, you never know what you might see.
I haven’t participated in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for awhile, but I’ve missed it a lot, so here’s my entry for this week’s challenge: Leaves and Trees.
There’s a weird sort of beauty about Folsom Lake in the winter, when the water levels drop. It’s possible to walk around on the lake bottom in areas that would normally be invisible, under several feet of water, and some of the landscape is a bit otherworldly.

More images from the south end of Gerstle Cove in Salt Point State Park. Tafoni is a familiar feature of the sandstone in and around Salt Point.
