It’s amazing how you can take your hometown for granted, how you can completely miss the beauty of where you live simply because you see it all the time.
When I lived here I didn’t always appreciate the subtle things that make our area beautiful. The huge mountains are obvious and I love those, but there are so many things I appreciate now more with each visit.
One thing I love about Red Bluff is the abundance of oak trees. I went out today in search of a single oak tree in a field to photograph. I drove around for two hours and never found exactly what I was hoping to find, but I found some beautiful areas in the meantime. Here are some photos from my phone and my camera.
Continually look for the beauty all around you. God’s creation is diverse and amazing – there’s always beauty to be found.
