This is either a beautiful overlook, or you did some hiking to get to this wonderful vantage point.
The colors are wonderfully captured and the shadows of the clouds on the colorful hillsides add depth.
California's green hills don't last for too long, but you've saved them forever in your image. *****

@Judy aka L@dybug: just a bit of hiking...3-4 minutes, or so, but not too much since that's Hwy 1, that you see, that runs along the West Coast thanks Judy

I love the gorgeous contrasting mix of light and heavy shadows here, along with the lush verdant greens. A very nice landscape indeed.
