The verdant and the dessicated

All along l-40 in New Mexico the colors were saturated and the sky scrubbed clean by rain, some of it torrential. California not to much.

This is the kind of photography a guy produces through windshields and side windows at 80 mph. That is to say, not very good and the best is yet to come. Can't get worse.

A salad of Cowgirl Creamery Burrata and Exeter, California Elberta Freestone Peaches tossed with Blackwell's Corner Almonds and accompanied by a bracing Tablas Creek Rosé from Paso Robles is in the offing. All of this and much, much more to be enjoyed in my trim little cabin on the Canvas Ranch just east of the village of Tomales between Petaluma and the Pacific.

Without my external monitor the values and colors of these shots are very much a crap shoot. Be gentle with me.

On the road again? Envy you Tomales Bay and salad at Cowgirl Creamery, you turkey!

But seriously, folks, this is a terrific series of images along the way. The rain-dotted windshield is a wonderful abstract, and the highway with exquisite storm clouds is stunning. Love them all, really. Keep the shutter clicking.

Waiting for more...

Can't help myself. I start back tomorrow. Two very big days behind the wheel await.

It can get worse… my vehicle won't do 80:-) have a fun, safe trip, Steve.
