Almond Orchard

This is how most of the Capay Valley almond orchards were looking last weekend.  They were in various states of not quite ready to bloom.  I doubled back to photograph this barn because I liked the red, white, and blue effect with the sky.  Looking at it now, it seems a little washed out, but I think the colors are about right.  In previous photos I complained that the sky color was too deep.  Here the blue sky still has a winter look to it, although it's getting stronger; this photo best reflects the changing of season.  The bottom half looks like spring and the top half looks like late winter.
