Coming around a corner this fledgling Pinyon Pine caught my attention
and then, zooming in, this fungus.
This morning as I was taking an early walk I realized my brain is adjusting to the sharp California light and with that I’ve a renewed and deeper sight. The subtle shades of green for example are quite unlike anything I have encountered before. I super saturated these two images and rather liked the result. No, the shadows are not this beautiful blue!
Tomorrow we will be traveling on California State Highway 33, a twisting and turning road over the mountains to the coast, loved by bikers. Much like Hartside Crossing in the UK. Perhaps there will be some photographs of marine mammals in the next post. California 33 is also know as the Petroleum Highway. I’ll have to post the video, taken near Maricopa when I was passing through the oil fields earlier this month.
Thanks for the small rash of comments. And thanks for the e-mail R. I’m doing my best to get back to regular posting because I know there are those of you who log in each day in hope of something new to look at.
