A field of yellow flowers, green grass, and shadows under the glaring sun. Too much color so into black-and-whitishness!
Trees never cease to allure! Personality, character, beauty. No idea what kind this is, but its bark is so beautiful that it caught my eye, and my lens.
Whenever we get cabin fever during shelter-in-place Covid-19 orders, we get out and drive, and explore new bits around us. This was in a split-level park, with different plateaus connected by walking paths. Here, a bit of ground cover at the edge of a level, butting up against the spring mustard blooms. Not exciting as far as scenery, but a pleasant little neighborhood park we had not seen before. Well, sort of a neighborhood park – 30 miles away!
I doubt we will be seeing clouds like these in the near future. The rainy season may be ended. Looking ahead to the weather forecast, sunny days in the low 70s. Not bad at all, but the rain is so needed . . .
Hunkered down, spending money on groceries in ways not of our norm, enjoying the cold and rain, and getting out for walks. I get off the streets and onto a trail. Here is a view from above a local creek – all slushy brown leaves from last year and new ones leafing out.
It’s been a kick trying to take good pictures with a limited, prime, non-zoom lens. A challenge. So many absolutely dreadful ones, and the occasional good one. Learning curve! Not a bad thing at all. I’m glad I got this X100V – my mind is definitely rethinking how to make an image.
