There was some interesting cloud action going on today. Of course I didn’t have my “real” camera with me at all today (yes, I’m dumb), and don’t yet possess one of the better camera phones on the market.
Still, I had to at least try to capture the\is coolness in the sky.
And I’m pretty impressed with how well this photo from my $20 camera turned out. Thanks Kyocera!
I’ve been a part of a photography group in which each month we focus on photographing a particular color.
May is blue, and I have so far failed to photograph anything to fulfill this challenge.
I did get a couple of old blue glass bottles at a garage sale a couple weeks ago, so today I finally got out my light box to play around with them.
Here are my results.
This morning was overcast and a bit drizzly when the Tob-ster and I went out for a walk.
Down by the shore sits two racks filled with varying types of water vessels; from streamlined kayaks, to family-sized canoes, and to a one-person sailboat, all of which seem to be waiting for the summer to start so they can get out on the water.
Isaac and I have yet to put our recently acquired canoe in the water, though we’ve talked about it a couple times! The next warm day we have off we’re sure to head down there with the paddles!
As we headed back home the sun did peek out a time or two and I was able to catch it.
We also found a random goose egg out on the docks….silly geese, don’t they know not to leave their kids lying around unprotected??
From the little dock on the lake you can look down and see the lilies stretching their legs and reaching for the surface.
None have quite reached the surface yet, and I am looking forward to when they do. I might even do a bit of wading to get close to the blooms!
Lake Wilderness reflecting a lovely shade of blue under a sunny sky.
In search of a good place to both walk the dog and enjoy the scenery, we ended up at Dash Point State Park just as the sun was setting.
You’re going to be seeing a lot of these in the new few weeks. Bear with me. They’re so beautiful! How can I not take their photos everyday?
An early morning view.
I only wish I’d gotten the yellow flowers in the foreground in focus. My only excuse is my eyes themselves must not have been in focus that early! ;)
The thing that always come to mind when blue is being discussed is Crater Lake National Park. If you’ve never been, I advise you to make an effort to get out there at some point in your life. The winters are crazy, averaging 44 feet of snow a year. It’s a beautiful lake, and a great park. It’s a beautiful place both in winter and in summer.
On the hike down the Cleetwood Trail. Don’t mind the yellow stuff, it’s just pine pollen, and not an algae bloom as many people think. This pollen is completely harmless to the lake.
