Break in the weather

Here’s another rest stop view from the last leg of our ten day, nine gig, 2500 mile band tour–this time along Hwy 505, north of Vacaville, CA. Because we were racing home, the only opportunities I had to shoot were during quick rest or fuel stops. I would have loved to have had more time because the passing storm produced amazingly dynamic cloud formations all the way from the Oregon/California border to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Last day on the road

The band just finished a ten day tour traveling from the San Francisco Bay Area to Port Townsend, WA and back playing a different venue every night. This photo was taken near the California/Oregon border on I5 during the last leg of our journey. I chose it because it represents a fleeting view of the weather we experienced throughout the tour–including 9 inches of snow in Eugene, OR on the first day of spring. Weird, and amazing! Inclement weather be damned–we had a blast. More photos to come.
