The dangers of the dry season in our deserts as another fire breaks out in California’s Santa Clarita Valley, leaving another smokey ash filled sky and providing us yet again with an artificial red sun.

Peek-A-Boo Birdie

Our pet red Lorikeet peeking out his hanging rag hideout of his birdcage to make sure the coast is clear.

Applying one of the various and fun in-camera magic options while photographing my 52′ Hudson, as it sadly sits in the garage waiting to run again.
I sure wish these kind of art cheats were available in my drawing class years ago!

I had the feeling that is what this little birdie was thinking.
Armed only with my stock 20-50mm kit lens on my CSC, getting closeup shots is a pretty difficult task if not close to the subject. Wild birds are definitely not as cooperative for the camera as pets are.

On the road of Sierra Highway California, stands a lone tree on the side of the road which has been branded forever with a most unusual appearance after having been struck by lightning some years ago. Many believe it was an act of the heavens and believe it has been created in the form of the virgin Mary. Several religious followers now adorn the particular tree with relics, flowers, accessories, and offerings, and regularly come to pray and worship at the site.
