Clouds Illusions

I love a cloudy day... Taken from Sign Hill in South San Francisco, CA. (It's got a gigantic sign that says South San Francisco, The Industrial City.

From Sign Hill looking northerly toward San Francisco at the crest of San Bruno Mountain

It's a steep walk up Sign Hill... a couple million gallons of water just off to my right in storage tanks.

Looking westerly toward the Pacific Ocean over Sweeney Ridge. Played with colors in this one a bit.

Re: Various and Sundry

A very inspired set, Rich.  I like the view of the rails over the bridge.

Re: This is supposed to be Autumn and it's still too damned hot.

"Why'd it have to be snakes?"

Not fond of the critters... too many close calls with rattlers in my youth.

Great set of sunset pix.

Re: Swans

Sweet collection of bird shots Andrew! Still looks a little nippy there.

Lovely scenes Dave... what's up with the blue backs on the sheep? Any idea?

Re: Clouds Illusions

Nice set.  The second image with the road, tree and sky stands out for me.

Re: Various and Sundry

Very various... End of March and still between storms. Reminds me of winter of '82/'83.

Love the last one...!

Re: Various and Sundry

Thanks, Craig.  I do love that place.  There are so many ways to make that pic.  I haven't even tried from the other end of that bridge yet.  Rich

Re: Down by the Loch

Thanks Craig. Unfortunately the decent weather ended soon after the images you like.

Re: Down by the Loch

Thanks Joe. As I explained to Andrew, one sheep looks pretty much like another so farmers in an area mark their sheep with a colored mark in a particular position on the body to aid identification should their sheep mingle as can happen where there are no fences on the hills. Marks can be different colors and in different positions on the body of the sheep .

Re: Various and Sundry

Thanks, Joe.

In that Winter of 82/83 I was building my first house here in The Humboldt.  It rained every day between New Year's Day and Easter Sunday.  Every day!  Rich

Re: Clouds Illusions

Nice set of images Joe. I love skies like that but don’t get to see them as often as I would like.

Re: Blooms

Nice images of the lilies.  They are lovely.  The smell, I would need puffers!
