Sailing Off Point Vicente

I took this photo on Point Vicente in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. I wanted to capture the calmness of the ocean and the layers of colors reflecting off the sky and sea. From the shore, the sailboat in the foreground seemed so small and insignificant amidst the ocean’s vastness.

Adding color to my blog

Today my daughters suggested that I add more color to my blog.  According to them, all the black and white photos that I post would be more “pretty” if they were in color.  So in an attempt to add a little color to BEYOND THE MESAS, and to make the overall appearence of my blog more “pretty,” I have posted a (daughter approved) photograph that I took of a hot air balloon that recently flew over our house.  For those who might be interested, I was using a Nikon D60 with a 70-300mm Nikkor lens.
