This tree is perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific. It's not really as serene as you might think, as it's in the middle of Palisades Park in Santa Monica, with lots of people and cars and buildings and roads and sand before you actually get to the ocean. I knelt down low to cut out everything but the flowers, tree and sky. Because I was forced to get close to the tree because of a fence, I used the iPhone's panorama function to get the wide shot. I wish I could have gotten a horizontal view, but the dynamic range with the setting sun was too much.
I'm expecting something fun tomorrow. Some major photography equipment that will bring some major changes for me. I'm very much looking forward to it. Stay tuned.
