Needless to say, a favourite place for kids, providing also a good complementary colour for blue in the late afternoon! Hey, parents may also enjoy shooting : )

I may decide to change this to one of the other pictures I took today, or perhaps to something that I will take later on in the month. I couldn't decide if I wanted to post a mostly blue picture, or one of contrast. So since there's lots of mostly blue pictures, I chose contrast.

Water for a Dry City:



This is a section of the California Aqueduct - this transports water from northern to southern California. It crosses over the mountains that are north of Los Angeles county. This is a section near the top, in the Antelope Valley. As this picture shows, the area is rural and very dry. We need some rain very badly.

Harriett, I'm with GW - that is one terrific photo.

Not that I am pre-judging the way I'm going to vote

Hi,

just got back from a sunny vacation on the island of Rhodos Greece , and would like to add this one.

It's taken with a k20d + tamron 18-200 at 200mm, f8.

I saw a lot of people taking pictures on the small pier in front of the hotel,
but this was the only couple smart enough to got to the edge.
When I saw them taking position I ran back into to the room got the camera and was just in time for this shot.

Thanks GW and Keith. I sure wish there could be some green around - everything is very dry.

Ronny - your timing on that shot is absolutely perfect! At least she's appropriately attired, it would have been worse if she hadn't been wearing a bathing suit.

Hmmm... I think it would have been better if she wasn't wearing one...
