March Madness

Last sunrise of March 2015.  Decided to mix some glass into the morning ritual.

Blue Monday from the past

This is one of my favorite shots from the past.  Originally shot with 35mm film back in 2005.  I love the simplicity of distance color gradients and shades.   This was actually taken from the top of Mt. Washington looking South East in the evening.  This was the last time I visited the top of Mt. Washington.  Looking forward to making another trip this year.

Shots from a trip to the coast of Oregon back in 2007.  I believe these were taken in Florence on the river.

Abalone Awesomeness!

I picked up these abalone shells for $1 or so at a seaside gift shop over 10 years ago on the northern coast of California in Trinidad and have always loved the patterns and colors and way they reflect light.   I thought about burying them part way in some beach sand and using them as a candle holder but for now I just take pictures of them from time to time.  I’m not sure if they add color to these or not?  Either way I find them to be very cool.  I also like how the featured photo looks like the sad face from the theater comedy and tragedy faces.  It actually looks like 2 different faces to me. One big one and then the sad face in the chin of the big face.  I actually posted some of these before but I managed to make that post disappear somehow?  Apparently I abolished my first awesome abalone audition.

Fortuitous morning at Fortunes Rocks

I had been wanting to check out this spot that is a bit further away for me for awhile now and today seemed like a good day.  Glad I made the effort and a little longer drive.  I had the whole beach to myself for awhile.  One of my favorite things about the cold morning sunrise efforts, the solitude and getting lost in the moment. Fortunes Rocks, Maine.

Cool new crystal ball with bubbles that my wife found.
