San Jacinto Wildlife Area (#2)

I guess I'll go through a sequence of frames from this location more or less in order, from early to late.. so this one would be next, time-wise, after my previous post. Plein-air painters and watercolorists should have a real field day here.. If I still had the inclination to paint, I could find many days of subject matter in this spot. Very tranquil and almost no people... just a few contented ducks cruising lazily through the water in this scene, if you look carefully.

Second in this series and stunning, so stunning and that colour, so brilliant. Cannot wait for the next post...going to be a great series. I agree, this would be a watercolourist dream come true...my husby would love this, yet he is no longer inclined either...hmmm, maybe I shall give it a try, or maybe not~

Thanks everyone.. I'm glad that you enjoy this kind of scene, which takes a bit more of a practiced eye to appreciate... I guess you guys all have that.
CherylAnn: Yes.. who would think it, huh? Actually a little NW of Hemet.. just off the Ramona Expressway about 3-4 miles due east of Lake Perris. Look on google maps and you'll see it.

the first thing that strikes me is the quality of light and the reflections are just right not overpowering
