It was a cold (for us) day and quite windy all day. I had put off taking a walk, and finally headed out a little before sunset. I noticed the wild and crazy clouds over the mountain, and went back to get my camera. I walked along, seeing the changing clouds with the lengthening day. When I first started out they were all white, and moving quite a bit in the wind. As I continued walking, trying to find some good views without telephone poles and wires, TV antennas (who uses antennas anymore?), houses and trees. As the clouds got pinker and more beautiful I kept shooting as I walked. I ended up getting over 1,000 steps over my goal, and got some nice sky shots as well! This is one of my favorites, looking east toward the mountains, as the sun was setting.
I was looking for a pic on my cell phone and ran across this image from last December, which I had forgotten all about. We had gone to a special Christmas Eve dinner at a great Italian restaurant in San Diego, and passed by this outside eating area. It was too cold to eat outside, but the lighted area looked very inviting, so I snapped a quick shot of it.
When at Whitewater Canyon, standing by the Whitewater River, I noticed the colors and patterns in the water as the stream went by. Cropped, it made a nice abstract type image.
