Sky Shots

Yosemite Sky

July 28, 2005 - taken while riding my bike in a meadow near the Merced River with Canon Powershot S1 IS. The wind was blowing the flowers from the cottonwood trees (I call them that because I have no idea what they are) in the air and it almost looked like snow. I couldn't figure out a way to capture it because I couldn't really focus on them so I just pointed up to the sky. You look hard you can kind of see the while spots but I like the clouds and the sun rays.


For the life of me I can't remember when or where this was taken but pretty sure it was taken years ago. I would really have to dig through hundreds of pictures to find this. I believe this is a scanned print taken on film possibly slides but again not really sure. Pretty interesting how similar this shot is to the Yosemite shot.

Sky shots and the moon shots over the lake are great for me. I really love sunsets and sunrises and sky views from even planes. You do a beautiful job of pulling in the views and a good photographer. But then I am very prejudiced too. The view of the stump is a picture I would print for hanging up in my den with the others.
