Christmas Truck

Saw this old truck in Texas along side the road.  It was obviously part of someone's outdoor Christmas display.  Unfortunately, I wasn't there at night to see how it looked all lit up.  But since I like old rusty vehicles as photo subjects, it looked good enough to me in the daylight to make a photograph.

I wish my family and friends a very merry Christmas and I hope all of you are able to be with those you love this Christmas season. Please join me in praying for the well being of our troops across the world defending our freedom.

Bye Bye Autumn

Well, winter is on the horizon as autumn fades away.  Here in SoCal autumn doesn't really kick in (i.e. leaves changing color) until late November on into December.  The photo above was taken in my backyard of the leaf of a liquid amber tree.  As you can see, there is a little glare on the leaf in the upper left.  Had I not been so lazy, all I had to do was to go get my polarizer and that glare would have been history.  Either way, I like the detail in the leaf.

Night View of the Pier

Here's a night shot of the San Clemente Pier.  This was taken about a half hour after the sun went down using a long exposure setting.  As you can see, the sky looks more like it does in the daylight.  Of course because of the long exposure the water looks silky and smooth.  This is one of my favorites of this pier.
