Default Sun Mar 3

Got up way too early for a Sunday but decided to take my walk pre-sunrise. It was overcast and was actually too dark to photograph really. I did 45 min because I dropped my sunglasses and had to go back and climb down to where the daffodils were...
Blurry photo -pine sprouts near the "mother tree" in a lit up plaza...

Artemis was ready for her close-up...

Since it was so early (nobody up but the wild turkeys) I was able to climb down to this area to get a close up pic of the daffodils - tweaked the color the best I could because it was too dark.

Artemis's neighbor in the plaza - one of the Wright Bros?

And surprise! Azaleas which also needed some color correction. (dark)

I think Artemis was whispering to me that I dropped my sunglasses in the daffodils (silly me-had them "just in case") so I retraced my photo steps and there they were. White roses on the way back - color tweaked.

the difference in the photos, via sun and no sun, is a good contrast. I like it.

Thanks Arlene - honestly I stay out of the sun as much as possible. Most of my shots will be pre-sunrise or as the sun is setting. I am completely living in the wrong place as far as heat/sun goes. I've never gotten used to the summers here.

Here in So Cal, I hate heat! I am not a happy camper in the sun and I live in Beach country..... I burn and peel.

Oh well, I do LOVE the ocean. No complaints.

Yes, me too. I would love the ocean as well - hoping to move to the Bay area at some point..I keep saying that ... I do like the Sierras here - nice to live so close.

Kat, you may be just the person to help me with a photo problem. I had the DH take a front and a side view to post on the gallery but one of them came out sideways. He didn't do anything different but one came out right and the other one didn't. I went in to my gallery of saved photos and clicked it so I could edit. After I rotated it, though, I can't find any way to save the new version. I am on a PC, using Windows Seven.

Hi Ann - there isn't a little save box icon on top with the others? With printer/cut/paste etc or if you click file and the drop down should say save as... and you can save it where you like - it's easier for me to save to desktop.
I'm not terribly technical, just know the basics. This is new to me too

30 min of dance tonight. I'd go longer but I'm really hungry at this point - didn't have much of a snack. I can't eat a lot before exercise...makes me feel kind of ill...

No, this is in the MS gallery thingy. I've looked and looked. I can click an 'edit' icon and do the rotation but then when I hit save, it says it's in an inaccessible location.

I ended up at work way too early in spite of an alarm that didn't go off - so I walked for 15 min. I'll walk another 15 soon - but here are this AM's photos.
A cherry tree in bloom...

This was as close as I could get to the feral cats in the area to take a pic. A nice lady in this building feeds them in the mornings.

A flock of birds flew overhead...
[IMG][/IMG]
Blue rosemary flowers next to orange pyracantha bushes was such a pretty color combo - I had to fix the color a bit..

Wildflowers among the rubble piles...

Film critic?
