I live within a very few miles of the Pacific. Average winter temperature is about 55. Average for the summer is 65. Weaverville is inland a bit on Hiway 299. The temp is about 30 degrees warmer than here. For us, it’s fascinating because of their love of their history. They relish it. On the way, at Willow Creek, we follow the Trinity River east to Junction City. Then it’s just over the hill into Weaverville.
Playing with silhouettes and clouds.
What’s fun about these clouds is that all I have to do is walk into the street in front of my house and look around. As long as it isn’t that boring blue stuff, I usually find something interesting.
This afternoon’s plaything.
This is not a fireball about to crash into the ocean. It’s the setting sun with a strange gap in the clouds.
I’m doing a series on clouds with a technique under development. Not much of the sea here as I was shooting on a cliff and didn’t want to include waves. I’m using a mirrorless camera with a manual lens so that I don’t have to monkey around with autofocus which just gets in the way for these images.
