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.

Such unique trees to be framed by the sky! :)

Terrific capture as always, Martha! The trees are unique and they are perfect silhouetted against the sky! Hope you have a great day and a lovely weekend!

This is a dramatic and striking photo of the rugged, silhouetted trees against the dark and light sky! Nice capture, Martha!

I really like these quirky trees - they make GREAT silhouettes.

Did you have to get up really early for these :-)
I want to know what it looks like behind those trees. The ocean?

I am all about shilhouettes this week, awesome. What Lighthouse is at the park?

Martha Z said...

Morememes--Not too early, I took the shot at about 7:20 and yes, the ocean is beyond the trees.

Trish--Not a real light house but a small surfing museum built to look like a lighthouse.

Such a beautiful photo, Martha. The state of California should publish your photos in a book for tourists.

The morning light is wonderful. Beautiful shot!

Martha -- there is really one bad thing about your new blog. Everytime I look at your lovely pictures I wonder why we felt like we had to see all 50 states instead of just visiting our (then) neighbor! California has it all really doesn't it? (For those like yourself who can look beyond the glitz and get out into nature.)

A stark and beautiful shot!

I can feel the stillness in your photo, as though the sky and trees are inviting me to pause and savor each quiet moment.


Which sky for you?
One that is blue?
Or do you prefer
A sky that’s demure?

A sky in grey
Is soft, they say,
And not everyone
Likes the blinding sun.

Perhaps a sky
Through which geese fly
To winter havens
Away from ravens?

A rain-swept sky
That seems to cry?
O quickly choose one
Before day is done!

I can just feel the world waking up from this pic. ☺ It's peaceful and whatever that's bothering a person at the moment can feel some solace in this moment.

The silhouette of the trees makes me feel I'm looking at Kenya. Beautiful. Happy Friday.
