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.

Superb capture, Martha, and again, your composition is fantastic! Marvelous shadows! Always a pleasure to see what beautiful part of your world/skies you have to share with us, although I'm not here from either meme, but just because I truly enjoy your blogs!!

I like the diamond that's caught in the tree. The shot has a sultry look.
