a moody Mt. Tamalpais

We had the most wonderful day of sunshine yesterday -- but regretfully more rain is on the way.   Evidently, God didn't get my memo that Winter (((California style))) was supposed to be officially over.

This is Mount Tamalpais, the centerpiece of Marin County, as it was on Sunday afternoon.   The dark and ominous clouds were just passing over -- and making quite a statement in the process.

This morning I discovered that I really didn't have any other photos to go along with the shot -- and even though the title of this blog is "A"photoaday I felt I might be short-changing all of you fine folks if I just left you with the one photo.   So I decided that I might be able to get away with just cropping the larger photo into two images, this one emphasizing the clouds...

OMG ..... I see you jumping up and down .... on the very tip of Mt. Tam. It looks like you're off the ground about 22 feet to be exact. How did you get the shot of yourself?

You know, I should force you to see a movie with me when I visit. I haven't been to a theatre in the past year. I typically see one film on the big screen/year. You'd be amazed at how theaters have advanced technically. Maybe we should see Avatar .... just for the technical aspects. Kitty can come too. Hopefully she gets in at the child rate, since movies cost a zillion dollars now.

Clever crop.

I think God (or Weather) got my state abbreviation (NM) mixed up with MN. We're getting spring wind and still have winter. Not a pleasing combination.

I see above you have another movie date. I'll bet if you wanted you could be at the movies all the time! (But then we wouldn't have A photo a day to see, probably.
