OK, so I’m complaining about the weather–again. It’s January and it’s warm and there’s been no wind or clouds or rain for weeks. The hills in the Bay Area should be green by now and the skies sparkling, but…. This is what most of the days over the past month have looked like at the Golden Gate–minus the fog!
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm at 63mm. 1/160 second at f/11, ISO 100.

Today’s post–just another quick, work-a-day commute stop along Hwy 101. I couldn’t decided which of these two shots I liked the best.
The images were processed slightly differently, but shot at exactly the same camera settings.

There’s been little visual incentive for me to stop along my commute route over the past couple of weeks so I’ve taken to abstraction for my photo kicks. This is a Hipstamaticized section of exterior wall at my workplace.

I took this shot almost exactly a year ago and posted it with two others of the same hillside as a series in black and white. This one I always liked the best so a while back I decided to re-post it as a color image. While reprocessing the image I realized the cloudless, blue sky needed embellishment (probably why I chose black and white before) so I composited in a patch of sky from a different photo.

After a lazy holiday week off, I was back on the commute roads today looking for photo opportunities. I had already stopped at the Golden Gate Bridge and taken some shots, but it was so nice out I decided to get off the freeway and take a backroad for the last leg home. I’m glad I did because I had a lot of fun watching these sheep and pigs enjoying the unseasonably warm weather.
I took this shot first. That the sun had already dropped behind the hills gave the scene a dusky look.
A few miles closer to home, the sun was still providing a nice backlight on the pigs.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm.
Sheep image: lens at 85mm, 1/30 second at f/7.1, ISO 100.
Pig image: lens at 17mm, 1/40 second at f/5.6, ISO 100.
