Not (Yet) Spring
I was out running an errand on the south end of town when I spotted some brilliant Altocumulus lenticularis hovering over one of the Siskiyou hills. But by the time I went back home to fetch my camera they had dissipated into the blah stratus mass that had settled into the valley. (At least it didn't rain.) Driving southward, searching the skyline for any remaining lenticularis to photograph, I decided to explore around Emigrant Lake a little bit, which is just off of Hwy 66, only a couple of miles outside of town. I pulled over at one of the waysides and decided that since I'd come all the way out here to take some pictures, I might as well find something interesting to photograph. In the Not-Spring on an overcast day, the colors were less than radiant and I struggled to find inspiration. But finally, I spotted some trees with nothing remaining in their fractal brambles of branches but bunches of mistletoe. This picture below is my favorite. I love how the edges glow. This pic is straight out of the camera. (No photoshopped glowing edges here! ;-)
You can find the rest of the pictures I took at the wayside here, in my flickr set, Not Yet Spring. I plan to go out and take more pictures of in this intermediate season I call "Not Yet Spring" tomorrow. Hopefully, in the Not-Rain. ;-)

The View From Here Is Quite Nice
Took advantage of a gorgeous day and drove up to Crater Lake to take some pictures. Still learning to use the new camera but that didn't stop me from taking lots of pictures, many of which are posted on Flickr and stashed in my set, Crater Lake March 2009.
On my way back, I ventured a bit down Hwy 230 and snapped some photos of some favorite haunts (well, those I could get to, anyway).
I hope you enjoy this set!
