I took this picture of the South Yuba River in northern California (and then photoshopped the hell out of it) back in June of 2006, when we got to visit my uncle and aunt one day while spending the week around Tahoe.

My aunt, Odette, is a talented painter who has just started a site to showcase some of her work: Brush Works by Odette. There are a lot of really nice northern California scenes in the gallery, so go pay her a visit and enjoy her art.
