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?


Just...cool...


 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!!!

Tall Ship...





"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you don't do
than those you did.  So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from a safe harbor.  Catch the wind in your sails.
Explore.  Dream.  Discover."

Mark Twain




One of the tall ships in Dana Point, California


This is one of my favorite photos that I've taken over the years...
I took this in Dana Point, California during a class excursion for a Tri-Community Photography class.
2010
At the time I had a Nikon d70s...
1/160  at f 6.3  ISO 400  70mm (18-70mm)
