About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

This is a great view, the transition from bright open land to dark in the woods is stark. The mood and temperature changes quickly - therein lies the natural charms of this place!

What a terrific shadow shot for the day, Martha! I love Mendocino! My daughter and I always try to go there when I visit -- she lives in Santa Rosa and has her studio in Healdsburg! Enjoy your weekend!

Beautiful photo!
I came here to see your reflection, but I'm here to stay. I love my state and you've taken some great photos of it. I've been to many of the places I see here, but my photos were all film. They were all lost several years ago. So, I've stared over with digital. Enjoying it more this time around...

I want to climb that awesome looking garden sculpture! What fun that would be! Great photo and I'm loving this New(?) blog of yours. I apologise if it's not so new. I struggle to keep up with all the wonderful blogs these days!

Wow....I've been going through all the links over at shadow shot and I think this is the best and most interesting so far! Super.

Mine this week is a heron casting its shadow near the marina.

Here's the direct link
