Today we went up to the Reagan Library to view the Thomas Fire from afar. Here, you can see it from the hills around Santa Paula, California, past Ventura on the coast, moving toward Carpinteria in Santa Barbara County. Nearly 200,000 acres have burned in 8 days through rough back country. Valiant efforts by fire fighters from around the country are helping, but here and elsewhere in Southern California houses and animals and people are all suffering.
First tries with editing using Aurora HDR 2018 for Windows. There are some things which I like about the program – and some I don’t. I’ll give it a try.
Yeah, and in a pano no less! I couldn’t remember if I had rewound the film in my Trip 35, so I cracked it. The last few pictures were exposed, but the result is that this panorama actually has genuine light leaks, not ones put in place by software. I rather like the results.
No fragrance, but always a lovely show!
From last summer’s road trip using JCH StreetPan 400.
I thought the colors were pretty nice . . .
From left to right, unknown (the one with the phone), FIL, DH. And I am behind the camera.
The lines of the buildings against a clear sky created an interesting texture of shapes.
Autumn is here . . . even if today is 88 F! The ginkgo leaves are changing from green to gold and orange.
It’s interesting to see how much photography improves watercolor, and watercolor improves photography.
