you don't need a DSLR to do infra! (just like you don't need a DSLR to do visable... :-) )

it was foggy again on Saturday, so much so, that that the boys' soccer pitch was quite difficult to find...

Thanks, joeseph. Does your fog stay around all day?

Wow, so many great contributions since I was here last.
Love all the double landscapes, showing the differences the time of day makes.
Don, love your windmill!
OhLook, never seen a branch like that. Is it like that because it's all dry or is that the normal state of the tree?
Stina, love that beam!

There are too many to name individually, but I enjoyed them all.

I was in bed a few days and wouldn't you know it, I missed one of the worst Summer storms we had over here!! I had been looking forward to it as it was perfectly timed for this week's theme, and I slept right through it. I also didn't get to shoot the windmill I had planned.

However, the storm did turn the weather and we are having a lot of showers now. Very early this morning I was up and shooting people going to work, to school etc. and looking at my shots I thought: "how boring." So, I tried something else instead.

I intentionally overexposed this. The girl has an umbrella as it was raining, but having overexposed the shot, I couldn't see the rain, so for the first time ever I used a kind of texture. That is, I blended in a shot of the rain pouring into the canal on the other side of my house. No idea how to do this properly, but after some work in Photoshop I'm quite pleased. Colours didn't match, so I desaturated as much as possible without actually going to black&white. I'm sure it's not for everyone but I like it.

and then there was this daddy with his little girl and clearly on his wife's bike. The red cape the little darling was wearing was too cute. Colours were awful, so I desaturated as much as I could without actually going to B&W as that would have made it truly selective colour, which I detest. I know the shot is pretty bad, but how cute is that little girl?

Like the rain shot Levina and the little girl is precious for sure. Bet her parents would like a copy of that one if you only knew who they were.

Well this theme is drawing to a close soon and I have about wore out my welcome here but it seems the weather just keeps beating me down and I keep shooting,at least while there is reason to share. Today was supposed to be nice with only heat warnings for the day, only in the 90 degree F range but with near 100% humidity. Twenty % chance of rain, not likely to rain, right? It was horrible and I have been in hot weather before but today was like being locked in a Sauna for too long. I was at work enjoying the fact that I had air conditioning in the cabin I'm building when my phone sounded an alarm for bad weather, within 5 minutes it had received 4 warnings, then all heck broke loose with lightning, wind and heavy rain. It lasted for 50 minutes and rained 2 inches, lot of damage, this time mainly flood damage.
It is so frustrating to watch the West literally burning up and we can't stay above water, not sure which is the worst to deal with. The following pics are of my house and the creek that flows on the East side, it is small compared to most of them in the area and the pics were taken about 10 yards apart.

This last pic is of one of the fields I burned this spring, it should have been baled for hay the 2nd week of June but has had water running through it for 2 months, can't even hike across it so no haying has been done in my entire area.

No rain in sight but very warm. So I decided to do a little bird watching in the dry weather

Thanks for the weather pics Steve, but they do depict a disaster. Hope Mother Nature cuts you a break soon.

Wonderful additions to the thread today!

Grizz.. I hope things improve for you. It is so hard to see so much water, while we sit in the bone dry here..
Fires, dying trees and general desolation. The climate is really crazy for all of us...

OK.. Let's get to a new theme

Thank you very very much, everybody who commented and/or liked. I'm so glad you like that first shot. It was truly a bit of experimenting on my side, so I'm really happy with the positive comments.

And Mark, you noticed the second girl! I wonder if anybody would. I myself only saw it after taking the shot to Photoshop! :oops: :-P

Steve, that's a good thought, if only I knew who those people were.

Also Steve, I'm so sorry the climate continues to be so hard on you. Living in a country with so much water and below sea level, I can empathise with you. Stay safe. And fingers crossed that the rains will stop!

Pete, those shots made me smile.

I love the manzanita, OhLook.

Thanks!

We had some weather blow in last night.

Funny thing, I was here and I missed whatever blew in. I must have been indoors for the duration of your sunbeam.

Normal state for manzanita. The tree looks healthy.

I intentionally overexposed this. The girl has an umbrella as it was raining, but having overexposed the shot, I couldn't see the rain, so for the first time ever I used a kind of texture. . . .

and then there was this daddy with his little girl and clearly on his wife's bike.

Excellent job on both of them.

We in the West are frustrated for the same reason. That's beautiful country you live in, leaving out the excess water.

Any fog (and it pretty rare) usually disperses by mid-morning out our way, sometimes it hangs around the airport a bit longer.
