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.

A new one for me. My friend actually saw a great heron fishing the Blue River here in Summit (this winter). I don't think they usually come this high - what's up?

Great capture of a very skittish bird. You must have been on your A game. Thanks for sharing!

It's great when one holds still for you. They seem to be at two extremes if you come across one-- high anxiety or frozen in place and indifferent (rarely).
