a peaceful pastoral day in photos, at Hidden Hills Ranch

I was thrilled to go with my dearest friend Lesley to Hidden Hills Ranch in Prunedale. I am working on a little project proposal for them involving their lovely critters and scenery. 

The value of nature and time with animals can be so instrumental to the special needs children who benefit from this program.  I am excited to possibly collaborate with them in the future!

I took my Christmas gift with me -- a hand-me-down DSLR camera from my brother Abner! It's fun to re-learn digital photography after using point-and-shoots in the past. Any photographers who have some critique or pointers based on my images please comment! I would love to hear your thoughts.

Enjoy these photos of the scenery & wildlife at beautiful Hidden Hills Ranch in Prunedale, CA! The view of the Salinas Valley from the top of the hill was absolutely breathtaking. I look forward to going back again and again!
