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.

What a gorgeous shot! The sky is perfect, with just a few clouds for interest, and then the cliff wall and the trees! I love it!

The Alpine (and Calaveras) County skies are some of my favorite in California!

BLESSED BE THE SKY

Cloudy, clear,
Bright or drear—
Blessed be the sky!

Sun and star,
Near or far—
Blessed be the sky!

Rain or snow,
Sunset glow—
Blessed be the sky!

Wind or calm,
Healing balm—
Blessed be the sky!

This photo reminds me of Ansel Adams style but in color not black and white. Very nice job!

Another homesick-generator! You do have a knack. I've always been a sucker for tree-lines against the sky, and this one's gorgeous.
