I went to the Strand last evening looking for one of those glorious rosy sunsets. That didn't happen. Instead I was treated to a sky filled with wispy clouds and a golden mist coming in around the base of the Rock as the sun was setting.
On our trip up Hwy 395 we ran into the first snow storm of the season. This mountain across from Crowley Lake was momentarily illuminated. I raced to the first pullout available and jumped out to take this shot. The light only lasted a few minutes.
I thought I would try out some HDR on some shots I took in Bodie last month. I had an opportunity to go inside three of the buildings there while I was on a workshop. Groups of 5 participants were allowed in at a time and only for 20 minutes. We could not touch ANYTHING. It was difficult to work around other people and in such a short time frame.
Yesterday Don and I took our first trip to see the White-tailed Kites near San Simeon Creek campground. What a thrill. We saw at least 10 different individual birds and had some good photographic opportunities. Most of my images were bird 'dots', but a few like this one still had good detail even when I cropped in close.
