Northern California - Redding California Photography

Old Hwy 99 West

For over two years I've driven past this view, traveling parallel to Old Highway 99 on Interstate 5 just north of Williams. And so many times I have wished for the free time to take this photograph. This time I had time, and this time, the light was just right. I love the texture and layers in this scene. But one thing that is really special is the number of trailers - normally there is only one pair of trailers; this is the only time in many, many years I've seen more than one pair of trailers. They were set almost perfectly spaced apart, and each pair is different which added to the visual interest. Finally, what made this image even more fun to capture was the fact that my dad and grandfather were in attendance, guiding the composition and keeping the thousands of springtime mosquitos away.
