    Cache Creek Wilderness California by Bob Wick, Instagram Guest Photographer

    About the photo: In this image high above the Cache Creek canyon, the blue oak tree is the primary subject. However, I also wanted to also call attention to the canyon and the stream, which were in the far background and not a prominent part of the image. I used the trees branches to frame a view of the creek drawing the viewer into this secondary subject of the image. Framing draws attention to the subject by blocking other parts of the image. It also gives the image a sense of depth.

    About the area: The Cache Creek Wilderness is located less than 2 hours from Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area and offers year-round photography opportunities. Summers can be hot, so spring, fall and winter are more popular. The area boasts a tule elk herd, wintering bald eagles and spectacular spring wildflower displays. Several trailheads are accessible from state highways 16 and 20 and are accessible to passenger cars.

    Camera settings: Lens:17 mm, shutter speed:  1/25 second, aperture: f 18, ISO 200

      One of my favorite places to hike. I don’t get up there but about once a year to try to see the migrating bald eagles.
