East of Porterville (Infrared).  Oak trees, as you’ve heard me say previously, can take a remarkable range of forms: elegant, majestic, eerie, gnarly - and sometimes all of the above, as this one demonstrates.  It resides among granite boulders in the western foothills of the Sierra Nevada range, overlooking the valley of the South Fork of the Tule River.  And it loves to bask in invisible light from a warm California sun.<br />
