Day 152 – Palm Trees

3 Sep

I normally post my daily blog right after midnight but I guess that time difference from CA is finally catching up with me because after a really great night with family and friends I came home and crashed big time. I think I opened my eyes up around midnight and thought “oh I need to post my blog” and then I went right back to sleep ๐Ÿ™‚

So I have to fit it in really quick before work. This shot is again at Venice Beach of the palm trees that lined the beach, I really liked this shot because I felt dwarfed by the gorgeous and tall trees and with the silhouette of the person and lifeguard house in the back you can see just how tall the trees are. This isn’t the exact framing I wanted but I was too close to change much about it.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Friday!!

The composition was still bothering me so I tried taking out two of the trees to see if I liked it better…I think I do, but I am not sure now. I have been staringย  at them too long lol.

    Great shot Mindy. I love the graduation from the dark blue sky drifting down to the lovely orange glow from the sun. The framing looks great to me! Lovely image

    I think the sky is what grabs me most about this pic. I love how it transitions inot the dark blue.

    The trees are huge, aren’t they? I also like the guy on the lifeguard tower… looks like he’s just staring off into space, which he probably is.

    Loving the pics from CA!

    You make me laugh.

    They are both beautiful, but I think I like the first one better.

    Mindy, I love palm trees probably more than anything else on earth and I absolutely love these pics. I love the first one the best, more palm trees, duh. I love the brilliant colors and I love that they look SOOO tall.

    I really wish you wouldn’t scan postcards and post them as pictures you took. That could get you into some deep trouble. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love these pictures, I think I like the second one the best. But they are both AMAZING!!!

    Beautiful, Mindy!

    I like the second one. It leads your eye.

    I like both shots, but my favorite part is similar to what Swap liked–the sky. I like the transition from orange to blue; complementary colors captured perfectly.
