Photo Site #3 - West Meadow Viewpoint
Because of the growth of several trees
my "west meadow viewpoint" became
a view of close up trees instead of the valley.
I have changed my view slightly!
I am still standing at the same place but
positioning my camera a few degrees
to the left of where it has been for the last year
or so in order to see the valley again.
