I am joining all the millions who have taken this same shot of the U.S. Capitol. It is a well-worn path, but beautiful nonetheless. I have contributed this image to this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Australian photographer, Leanne Cole.
This is my one and only shot of the sunset at a remote spot in California’s Anza Borrego Desert Park. We had planned to arrive earlier, but the road leading to this point overlooking a badlands was an obstacle course strewn with rocks and pits of soft sand. There was just enough time to set up my tripod and shoot!
The lower falls, the third and final cascade of melted snow, tumble over one last rock face on the way to join the nearby Merced River in Yosemite National Park, California. To see all of today’s monochrome entries follow the link to Australian photographer Leanne Cole’s website.
This image and the previous post are my first attempts at photographing and processing Milky Way images. I am finding the processing to be quite a challenge. Specifically, it is difficult to know exactly what the colors should be. This one might be a bit more natural than the first, but I can see that I will have to go out and take more photos and keep trying. I am open to feedback on which version is best.
On a clear, moonless night the Milky Way is visible in all its glory in the Anza Borrego Desert Park in Southern California.
I recently visited Anza Borrego Desert Park in the Colorado Desert, which contrary to its name is in Southern California! On this day, it was a withering 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Celsius). I’ve never been able to stay out too long in extreme heat, but surprisingly, I saw a brave soul riding a bicycle nearby while I was taking my shot.
