Journey of a body on this earth


Touch of Gentleness

My good buddy Dan Shehan took this AMAZING image yesterday! I just HAD to reblog it. Please head on over to his blog to check out his beautiful photography!

I’ve been waiting for a while to get some fog images.  Yesterday, I was on top of Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County located just north of San Francisco.

The beauty of Mt. Tam are the sunsets with a layer of fog below.  The waves of fog in this image were accentuated using an exposure of 30sec.  I’m really liking the smooth texture illustrating the hilly terrain beneath.

Boy…what a way to end my week.  Happy Monday all! Cheers!!!

Hidden Treasure

Quite frequently I drive down a road in our town (which I frequent often even prior to the move) and have noticed this cute little shed.  I’ve often wanted to take a picture of this shed, but there’s a little issue of it being on someone’s property.  The other day I wasn’t in a rush and I felt a bit feisty so I stopped, got my tripod out, camera in tow, and carefully tiptoed through the crunchy leaves to a spot I thought might work.  Leaves are VERY crunchy when one is trying to be quiet!

I couldn’t help but wonder what was in the shed, but I didn’t dare go find out.  It would probably be something a whole lot less inviting than I imagine….probably spiders and webs and creepy crawlies!  One thing about this shed is that it’s always so well-lit due to the incredible amount of trees surrounding it.  It’s such a beautiful setting.  I hope you enjoy it!

Against All Odds

As most of you know, I’ve been on a short break, but one thing I didn’t want to miss was this week’s Monochrome Madness!   This image was actually taken a few years ago when I first started taking pictures with my old camera.  Fortunately I had been instructed early on to always shoot in RAW, so I found the original image and reprocessed it.  I was amazed to see this tree all by itself with such dramatic weather around it.  It sort of reminds me of my life at the moment!  In an upheaval!  haha

For those interested in seeing all the entries to this week’s Monochrome Madness, please check out Leanne Cole’s site when you can.   It is usually posted about 6 or so hours from now.  It’s sure to be a wonderful collection!

I will not be able to participate in next week’s challenge due to our move and not having internet.  But I should be back up and running on my blog by later next week.  I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things!
