Photo of the day 1/5/2012 – “Untitled”


I’m not totally excited how this photo turned out, but since it got me to learn some functions of Photoshop I hadn’t used before, I’ll take it.  What you don’t see is a ton of branches from the scraggly tree in the neighbors yard.  A few remain, and the retouching work isn’t close to great, but I accomplished my goal today so I move on.

Photo of the day 4/24/11 – “Foreign Landscape”

“Foreign Landscape”

Even after having been to seven other National Parks in the past three years, Joshua Tree National Park took me be surprise. Perhaps much of the reason so was because nearly every part of it was foreign to me. No evergreens, leafy trees, or anything remotely recognizable from where I live or the other National Parks I’ve been too.

About the photo:
While I botched up the shot, I still included here as it still gives a sense of the place, and it reminds me of my experience. This photo was taken at the end of what is probably a pretty untypical day in April; it was in 50’s with on and off light sprinkles to a steady rain. It should have been in the 80-90’s and probably clear. So to get this shot with the sun peeking through the dark clouds behind us it probably pretty lucky.
