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.

The shadows inside are wonderful, but what a majestic view out that window!!

In this particular setting, I think I'd like to be sitting in the sunlight, rather than in the shadows.

Shadowy Empty Room

Coffee and Shadows--a perfect morning for daydreaming with that view!

Lovely! We plan to head up in June.

This must be a view from 100 years ago, it seems. It appears not to be an ornate hotel, but functional. To enjoy such a view while dining is a very nice treat!

Looks like Mission style in architecture and furnishings. Getting snow here - thanks if you sent it to me!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such wonderful tall windows for viewing the great outdoors! And love the shadowy room that seems like a treasured secret of travellers!

Thanks for sharing.

Lovely photo with beautiful colour and composition. I like the play of light and shade and the shadows cast.

A perfect spot to rest and view some of nature's beauty.
