ready for that 12-step?

I wasn’t going to do any photography today.  I let myself sleep-in this morning figuring that I might actually get more done if I were rested.  I spent part of the day backing up my photos and making backups of my backups.  Then this evening, I stepped outside to take out the trash and there staring me in the face, taunting me really, were some beautiful faintly lit, last light of the day, clouds.  I couldn’t resist.  But the streetlight was in the way, so I had to go up to the park.  It was nearly dark but the northern sky had some beautiful peach color to it.  So I had to walk to the other side of the park, to the edge overlooking the rabbitbrush hillside.  My pictures didn’t turn out as well as I thought they did when I took them – they would have benefited from a tripod – but I enjoyed the cool air and the subtle yet vibrant colors.  There is really no hope for me…..

Ah yes, I receognize the symptoms! Phorographic OCD, obsessive compulsive disorder. I think many of us can relate!

It's 5:20 in the morning, and I'm heading out for a hilltop to catch the sunrise!

So, where's the meeting?

By the way, it's time to add you to my blogroll, if you don't have any objections.

The top photo is stunning. I love the way you composed it, placing that fascinating cloud between the two trees.
