Salton Sea

It's been a pretty cold and wet month. Yes, yes, yes, I know it's November and it's been supposed to be cold and wet in Seattle but it seems just a little colder and wetter than normal this year. I should use these long dark evenings to work on my backlog of images, blog more, or post more on the myriad of social sites I try to keep up with. Instead I've been finding myself on the couch reading in front of the fireplace or in the kitchen making extra dinners to stuff into the freezer far too often. Tonight I vowed I would get back to work and I still managed to put it off till 11:00. In an effort to accomplish something, I opened up my files, pointed the cursor, and picked a random image from the past to post this evening. Where did I end up? A shoreline on a warm winter night (shot while in shorts) in Southern California. Sometimes the world seems to have an ironic sense of humor. Sunset over the Salton Sea, Imperial County, California.

Larrabee State Park, Washington

If you wait around for the amazing evening light in the Seattle area, you might be waiting for a very long time. Living for the last decade in the Pacific Northwest has forced me to seek out the quieter moments when the clouds, sea, and land blend together seamlessly. Besides, posting this photo is just another chance to shout out one of the sayings I'm so fond of annoying people with. There is no such thing as bad light...only bad photography.
