Easter Sunday quail…

Another late spring storm…

B & W

One of the side efects of my photography classes is an appreciation of B & W photography, particularly in the case of silhouettes.  In this instance, the photo is of a beach north of Bodega Bay, CA. The first is unaltered.  The remaining photos reflect my editing. Clicking on each photo will enlarge it

Murray Rockowitz in his classes often says that a photo frequently contains more than one picture… 

What the…??? A Blue Tree!!!

Cornerstone Sonoma , Hwy 121 in Sonoma County contains many interesting stores and gardens–A place certainly worthy of a few hours of your time.  However, I will not feature photos of the gardens in this post. 

Except for the Blue Tree…

The Blue Tree (illusion?) was designed and created by Claude Cormier of Montreal, Canada. The method–stringing over 17,000 plastic balls on a dead tree.

For a sense of scale…
