Sonoma County endured an entire week of Friday the 13th, pummeled by record rainfall and consequential flooding.  Tiring of wet clothes, hair, eyes, ears with days of soggy waders and an unfortunate dip in the floodwaters of Guerneville, I took a deep breath this morning and headed to the Laguna de Santa Rosa.  An oasis in the middle of our urban sprawl, It’s my go to place to make art when in need of a photographic recharge.  For a brief five minute window, I was rewarded with a just enough color to make Friday the 13th less intimidating.

Here’s to nature.
