Re: California In Better Times

Beautiful views. Thet first one, it looks like Scotland. I thought I was in the wrong thread.

Re: On the Mountain

Great pictures, WhyNot.  You are more optimistic than I.  I would not go near a place like that unless I had no choice.  I had to go to Costco for Rx yesterday so I bought enough groceries for a couple of months.  I went at a hopefully slow time.  It was still too many potential incubators.  Now I will wait for two weeks to see if I die from the exposure.  You can't enter Costco without a mask so everyone wore one.  I don't think of that as a guarantee just as I don't think of outdoors as a guarantee.

Now I really wish you luck and health.  Rich

Thanks. It has been a while. Need to start getting on here more often rather than reading the news:-)

Re: California In Better Times

Marin County, just north of San Francisco. Very beautiful. I hiked those hills on weekends, from Muir Woods over Mt. Tam when I live there. Alpine lakes on the north side of the mountain, views of the city. Nothing quite like it, but not the vast and lush scenery from photos I've seen of Scotland. That is some great country.

Re: Lonely Bird

I hope it hangs around, Andrew. I'm feeling lonely myself with no critters around.

Re: B&W Landscapes

He lives in Placitas? Have you been out here? I love our location. The image you commented on was taken about a 5 min walk from my front door.

Re: B&W Landscapes

Monochrome works beautifully with those skies.

I like the little barrel cactus too.

Re: B&W Landscapes

Thanks. Yes, the color version was OK, but there just wasn't that much color contrast to make it interesting.

I maybe should have done some cropping on the barrel cactus, but I just threw it in.
