on a Wednesday in December

I used a similar horizontal shot yesterday as my banner image but I think this vertical orientation looks much better.

These (above) are the Calla Lilies at Rodeo Lagoon.   A curious plant indeed -- I thought this was a plant that arrived around Easter, but it seems to have no qualms with unrolling it's blooms this time of year.

Before I went Calla Lily hunting at Rodeo Lagoon I did a bit of spooking around for little waterfalls at Rock Springs on Mount Tamalpais.

Not to forget the Coyote I met along the way.   He seemed fat and happy.

Beautiful pictures Donald, and I love the first one.
Greetings, Berit.

Yeah. I thought yesterday's banner shot was dug out of the archives. Strange. The horizontal is better. Like the b&w treatment of the falls. Good shot of Wiley too.

Thanks BERIT, and thanks SINBAD'S DAD -- so you like the horizontal version better? hmmm... And yeah, the falls aren't all that spectacular but I think I agree that they do look better in black and white. Am off right now to see if I can find any photogenic streams... Wish me luck.

Donald, what I meant to say was I like today's VERTICLE presentation better. I hadn't finished my morning cup of coffee yet when I wrote that so the little grey cells were not functioning up to capacity at the time.

Hi SINBAD'S DAD -- Yep, I think the vertical is better too... It's probably something I'll be re-shooting every time I pass by...

LOVE calla lilies. I keep trying to capture a good one on my visits. But it just hasn't worked .... yet. I love coyotes .... a reminder of Brock's genetic roots. Wish there were some in the preserve. I hear them from time to time, but they are miles off.
