Trees and sky

Posted by
LauraS (Chico, United States) on 11 May 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Spring is here, but yesterday we had some clouds and wind and rain, again. So this was the sky over the Endangered Species Fair in Chico. The next few days will show some activities of that event. A grand time for locals, especially the children. It is held the Saturday before Mother's Day each year.

Panasonic DMC-ZS1 1/640 second F/5.6 ISO 80 54 mm (35mm equiv.)

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.

This is great, Laura...A good shot of the elements above...I like pieces like this...it's funny how we often are tempted to include so many elemnts when we are really better off keeping it simple - this is a great shot! ps - I LOVED your fiat for yesterday
