Two trees revisited

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.

Warm winter sheep and pigs

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.

Hay fever

It’s a busy weekend with the band so I’m not finding time for new shots–but, hey, they’re all new if no one has seen them. Last week I posted some photos I took while out on a drive through the local countryside. Here’s another image from the same shoot–in fact, this is the field that’s only partially in view in my “Old County Road” post.
