Moved Out - No Longer In Stallion Springs - New Adventures Begin

Moving Day - Stallion Springs, California
As a part of our big move from California to Salt Lake City, Utah in May, we have moved out of our (now former) home in Stallion Springs and into a rental apartment in Tehachapi. This was not fun. We have about 2/3 less living space and went from a large yard to barely a yard at all. Thankfully this is only temporary.

I captured many of my favorite photographs in Stallion Springs. It's a great community in the Tehachapi Mountains, right on the edge of the historic Tejon Ranch. It's inspirational. I certainly enjoyed my time (a little over two-and-a-half years) living there and will always remember it fondly.

But things change. Life happens. Shift happens. We move on. We move forward. New Adventures begin.

In this post are some photographs that I captured in Stallion Springs. Some were even captured right in my own yard. I used a bunch of different cameras, including a Nikon D3200, Nikon D3300, Sigma DP2 Merrill, Nokia Lumia 1020 and Sony RX100 II. Gear doesn't matter, vision does. I've divided the images into two categories: monochrome and color. Enjoy!
