Excellent shots - wish I could get up early.

Thought I'd change the perspective of the signpost shot to add a sense of 'drama'.

Beautiful images. I specially dig the 3rd (street sign)one. The lighting is just unbelievable. Great Job!

Hey Harriet, those are really great. Six shots worth enlarging and framing within a few minutes time, I am jealous. The first and third are my favorites, which is saying something considering how good this set is. Thanks for sharing them.

Thanks for all the complements - It's been interesting to see what everyone likes. The crop catbells posted changes the whole subject -I really like it. When I decided to take the picture, I was only interested in getting something to block the direct sun, and to show the color of the pasture, and the sign was handy. It didn't occur to me at the time that the signs with the back lighting would make a great subject by themselves. Thanks for pointing that out.

This remote corner of SoCal is beautiful and I'm always looking for ways of capturing that beauty, and sharing it. Most people are like Tom - they drive over the mountains on Interstate 5 with no thought of stopping and exploring. It's all empty miles of road to them, rather thana big, open playground that offers lots of photo opportunities, constantly changing with the seasons. But then, I could say the same thing for many other spots in California!

That is real "artist's light" and beautifully captured - I'm envious.

Not in the same league, but here's a late afternoon shot of Teasles I caught whilst out walking yesterday; the sun is directly behind the teasle on the right.

I like this one too ... it is great how a post will inspire us (or at least me) to look at subjects and lighting ina different way. One of the many great advantage of this forum.

Cheers, Mike
