Another phone picture . . . today, at the end of October, we are having nearly 100F here in SoCal. Rain next week . . . or so they say. The drought continues.
Another photo from the misty, moisty morning I climbed out of bed . . . . While the Galaxy S5 takes OK panos, I like the stitching-together process better. Here is a view of Mount Clef across the grasses of the small valley in Wildwood Park nearby my home. Today we expect 86F, and tomorrow 91F. I think I live in hell sometimes, even though it is very pretty! I am tired of this heat – ongoing heat – and dream of water falling from the sky.
I finally managed to get my butt out of bed early enough to watch the sunrise and take a few pictures. Rather than taking a digital and film camera, I took just a film camera, and my phone. I’m always amazed at the quality of pictures one can get with the phone, especially if no magnification factor is involved.
Along the central California coast, the marine layer can extend inland. There are days when the skies are grey, and “sunny California” exists as a memory. Inland, the layer breaks up, but along the coast and tucked into the edges of the mountains, it can be depressingly dull. As a result, “May Grey” and “June Gloom” are my least favorite times to be on the coast, and am very glad I moved one valley inland!
I came across this one, from my archives. I took it in January 2003!
