Sunset Symphony...

"There's never one sunrise the same or one sunset the same."
Carlos Santana

Partaking in a photography challenge group online...
the challenge was "silhouette".

This is the pier at Seal Beach, California.
A beautiful Saturday evening, there were a lot of people walking the pier.
I had my polarizer filter on the lens...28-120mm.

ISO 400 - f5.6 - 1/800 sec.

I See It...Do You See It?

"I have found that there ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people
or hate them than to travel with them."
Mark Twain

While this looks like a travel photo, it really isn't it.
I took this while being trained as a docent for Mono Lake.
This funny old pier is on the south side of the lake, west of the South Tufa's.
You have to take this old dirt road from one of the viewing spots off of Hwy 395
to get here.

My fellow docents were enjoying the day, looking for Osprey with their binoculars!

Wish I Knew...

Wish I knew about this lovely walk along Mammoth Creek when we lived here!!!

Not bad for an iPhone!!!

This stately old tree was hauntingly beautiful...

Wish I could remember the name of these flowers!  Anybody?

 No place is more beautiful than Mammoth Lakes in the summer...

Guess who misses it up here?

Mom?  Can we go for another walk???  P-l-e-a-s-e!!!
