Stone and Golden Tree
"This Image was shot at the Taylor Peak Estate in Sonoma County. For some time I have been trying to photograph this unusual tree that amazingly grows right out of the heart of this huge rock. Finally one fall afternoon, I was there when the light was catching the tree as well as the distant mountain. While this is one of the more majestic, this vineyard is dotted with many spectacular trees, each offering a great place to rest and take in the beautiful views." -- Michael Regnier
