Treasure in the Gold Rush State

California—

known for its gold rush days 
and for its golden sun,
only seeks its treasure now
in clouds that yet may come.

                        .

As much as I love photographing light and shadow in California, I welcomed the clouds that promised rain relief in the midst of our  California drought.

A California drought effects not only Californians.  Just read the statistics that state: “California produces nearly half of US-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables”.

Yet, with this treasure of land and agriculture, it relies on one treasure over all: precipitation in the form of snowfall and rainfall.

When the rain began falling last week, I bought a rain sleeve for my camera and  took photographs every day. Here is one I selected for this week’s photo challenge: Treasure
