Several people ran outside yesterday to take pictures. The amazing lighting and sky lasted for hours. There was a blue cast to all the trees that have smooth bark and to the granite. These photos are not enhanced except where noted.
I’ve found it challenging to capture the colors in the sky with my little camera. They wash out. Usually I have to post process to get them back. Last night, I took several shots and for some reason this one turned out. I did not process it and this is what the sky looked like.
I’m finally getting ready to graduate from my little point and click. I’m breaking out the DSLR and tripod and reading the manual soon. I guess I’ll get a backpack to tote it all around in. Not such a big deal, after all.
Theme inspired by Where’s My Backpack?
Freedom from Work
How nice not to have to get serious.
No need to schedule a meeting.
No wondering when,
of four hundred and sixty
one will fall through a crack.
And show up on my review.
No more having to be reasonable
or confine my passions to the acceptable.
No getting narrowly defined.
Though you made it worthwhile
for you (all y’all) accepted my narrowly channeled passion
and let me experience
Now I slipped through a crack
and I am free from work.

Same stump, different years. The snow pack of 2010 lasted all the way into July, feeding the high Sierra wildflowers. The feature picture was taken in September, 2012. Which is more interesting? Prettier?
On the back side of the ridge line, more severe and dry conditions. Which one affects you more (if either!)?
