    A few shots from a very pleasant Autumn Saturday in northern California. Despite being the largest state park in the state, we saw very few people. Olympus E-M5 and 12-60/2.8-4.0.

    Very nice! Especially liked the last one. The tree seems humongous compared to the tiny person down the trail, or is the person really far away from the tree?!

    Yes, he's actually about 40 or 50 feet behind the tree (taking a photo of it, I suspect), but the perspective isn't obvious from the shot.

    Thanks for the comments everybody.

    Hey All,

    I believe Anza-Borrego Desert SP on the east side of San Diego County is the largest in CA.

    What park is that?

    Really nice images and as soon as I saw all that grass I thought - what a rippin fire that would make with say a 60 mph wind. I have always liked big old Oregon white oaks. Should be some blue and CA black around there as well. I now live at the northern edge of the range of Oregon white oak although up here it is usually called garry oak.

    Hi Ed,

    you're 100% correct - somehow I forgot about good old Anza-Borrego... This is Henry Coe State Park - actually the 2nd largest in California (and until recently in grave danger of being closed). We saw a lot of different oaks - blue, black and valley!

    The last is my fav also. Very nice. No Live Oak? Maybe too much water for Live.
