Ok, a few things about these pics.
I was disappointed in the quality of them. They just don't seem to capture the essence of what i was seeing. Also, i didn't realize when i first viewed this little valley, how many power lines actually obscure the view. We tried several different places to minimize this, but it seemed the more we looked the more there were.
I'm including a house we found interesting, too. And, while Duane's away this week i think i'll go picture hunting again. I didn't get many pics of fall foliage. He was getting irritable.
One thing i found interesting were the number of contrails in the sky that particular day. Lots & lots of them. I know some folks call them "chemtrails" & believe that when they spread out in a huge, feathery pattern they are the ones to poison us. Have you heard of this theory? I've always assumed the difference in contrails had to do with atmospheric conditions. Usually around here they are infrequent & dissipate quickly. I found it unusual to have so many in the sky & in such diverse patterns.
The pic with the white sky & the brightness in the right hand corner doesn't look like much, but if you enlarge it, i found the quality of the light & pattern very interesting in that bright light.
Ok, just for a contrast & to show that power lines/telephone poles can be interesting, here is one Duane took early AM when we were still living in Orange County. I've always thought it very unusual.
