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.

Nice shot Martha! Kestrels are a tough catch. I knew where a couple were last year and tried for weeks to get a good shot. No luck! Thanks for sharing yours. Cheers!

It looks like it;s giving you the evil eye. Wonderful closeup!

Nice shooting Martha! He is a very handsome fella. Like Dave, It took me a very long time before I had a decent shot of my favorite little falcon. Congratulations!
