Treasure in the Gold Rush State


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
