The Three Shastas on a Hazy Day

The Three Shastas on a Hazy Day

Here is the classic 3 Shastas image but it is less than ideal. The other day was a bit hazy. Don’t know why exactly but probably a few fires somewhere or maybe some smog from China. The lake is down a ways but luckily not as much as it was and with the rain here this week it will get even better.

Star Trails v 2.0

Star Trails v 2.0, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Well here is the next version of my attempt to create a nice star trail image. It’s getting there but I still have some clean up to do in Photoshop. Too many jet trails in with the star trails.
Each trip out I learn more and more about this stuff. I went last night with my friend Mike and while we were setting up and getting ready another friend stopped by. He hung out with us and that was most cool as he happened to be very knowledgeable in star trail/night photography and he shared that knowledge with us during his visit. Maybe next time I’ll know what I’m doing. It could happen!

Here are 3 White-Faced Whistling Ducks. It looks like the front one is whistling (or talking). These guys are found both in South America and in Africa. They are good looking birds.

I find these African porcine have interesting faces. I know that they are a social animal and smart but their faces seem to be a kind of poker face. Maybe because they are at the Zoo and have no predator to worry about it may just be their happy face.

Lute’s Bakery in Redding, CA 1947, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

And now for something completely different. Tonight I am uploading a photo I scanned today. This is my Grandfather and Grandmother standing behind the soda fountain counter in their bakery. Lute’s Bakery at 1423 Market Street in Redding, California. This photo was taken in 1947. Today I met someone who said they remember going here when they were a kid.

Oh well I know there is more than 13 but there’s thirteen in the middle ground. Mary Lake is such a cool, close place. I do love it.

A Cool Day at Mary Lake

A Cool Day at Mary Lake, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

I’m already missing the stormy weather of February. March has been mostly dry and we still are in such a bad drought. Let’s hope that April showers are a thing this year.

It’s Mine, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

I’ve seen this guy play before. I remember him because he a bit bigger than most of the other players. Here it takes two of the Humboldt players to get him down.

The Lift

The Lift, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Here the Shasta team is about to get the ball from the lineout. Personally it doesn’t look all that comfortable to be the one “lifted”. I would also think good quality & strong shorts would be the ideal uniform in this game.

Another action shot from the Shasta – Humboldt Rugby match on March 15th. This player has the ball and looks like he doesn’t plan to stop.
