Phoenix Lake Redwoods

I hiked up to the lake to try and find some redwoods. My sister says I don’t paint redwoods enough. My usual excuse it that they are so big I can’t find a decent composition. The only way to paint redwoods site size is to be really far away. I went to the lake with the idea that I could use the water to put some distance between me and them. I’m glad I went, Its so satisfying to see the lake full again. Lots of water.
