Some shots of the scenery on way to Lake of the Woods, near Crater National Park from San Francisco. Notice the predominantly yellow colors in the landscape in California..typical of California summers.
Vast tracts of land till the eye can see
Hay Bales-neatly compressed and stacked on top of each other
I wonder if someone lives in that hut like structure
The sky was a riot of clouds that day
Can you spot the horses, birds, otters, people, bears in these clouds?
Mt Shasta– look closely and you might spot a pancake stack of clouds near the top
Silhouettes Photography is an interesting way to capture different perspectives. This picture was taken during our trip to Joshua Tree National Park during a very sunny afternoon in March 2011. And as many of you would know, a bright sunny afternoon is not the best time to take good photos. There is too much detail, less focus (on the subject) and less contrast in the photos.
And most of us travel with time constraints. We cannot stay in a place for too many days, spending too many mornings or evenings for just the right light, just the right moment. Hence, one needs to learn, how to use the camera well, to make the most of what you have and what the nature offers you 🙂

Mcway Waterfall is also referred to as “tidefall”, since it empties directly into the ocean.
