Churn Creek near Lema Ranch

Churn Creek near Lema Ranch, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

I’ve been here in Redding almost 20 years now and it never ceases to amaze me at the kind of thing I can find that I didn’t in L.A. County. I can be in the city and really be pretty close to homes and houses and see something like this. Streams and fish and birds and trails and all things like that. I guess that I could find this kind of scene in LA when I was young but maybe I couldn’t.

But, I still enjoy the fact that I can find it here. Glad to be here and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon.

It’s that time of year again. Flowers are blooming in the gardens of gardeners and those that are in to that kind of activity. Me, I just like to document some of it. Not really the gardener type but do appreciate the beauty. My dad always has some great stuff blooming and this year is no exception. Here’s to you dad!

Kool April Nites. Usually is. Not now. Weather has been sweet for this type of event but it threatens to get worst then better.

The Poppies are Blooming

Well it had to happen. Spring. Let’s just see how long it lasts this year. Since it already got to the 90s today (April 12th) it may well be a short spring. I hope not but that is how it often goes in Redding. Not really know for long periods of great weather.
We did have a very nice sky the other day. Blue. With clouds. A perfect opportunity to get out and shoot. Though I am finding that I probably need knee pads now. My knees are so bad I can’t stoop anymore and it certainly is fun get on my knees with sticks and stones. Wanted this angle thought and I think it looks pretty cool though I would like to do another one with some fill flash for the flowers.

I happened to get out to Shasta Dam the other day and realized that since I’ve started getting serious about photography I didn’t have any dam photos. Here’s one taken with the little Canon P&S that came out OK. At the sky was decent for a change.
We took a walk down the new trail that connects the dam area with Quartz Hill Road. Nicely done trail.

Table Mountain

Here we go again. This is another one of those subconscious (almost) photos that I don’t really remember taking at the time but “found” it later when going through the images from this day. It seems to happen once in a while. I guess it comes from working on “seeing” things worth photographing and it’s always a pleasant surprise when it happens.
