  11. This post really shows off your versatility, Jane. The Rose Parade photos are excellent! Our small town has a few parades a year and I’ve made lots of photos, only a very few of which are at all decent. The heron is very nice, too. I know they’re good at posing, which helps, but you still have to get the exposure and focus just right, and you did. Of course I really like the plants – in spite of living in Pasadena, you’ve perfected raindrops on foliage. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Did you happen to see the NY Times article this morning about NYC becoming LA? Check it out, it’s funny.
    Here’s to color and light and cameras and blogs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Lynn, Always appreciative of your reaction- thank you! The Rose Parade is surprisingly easy and fun to enjoy. My granddaughter was enthralled. I managed to capitalize with mostly close-ups after the remarkable amount of rainfall. I looked for that NYT article with no luck – will search again. Did you catch the Renkl piece this week about Dorothea Lange and current day photography? Yes, here’s to lightseeking and photos! ๐Ÿค—

  18. As often happens here, I started out thinking of picking a favorite but was stymied by the beauty of all of them. It’s a good problem to have, though. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Cheers to another brilliant collection. I must say, some of the titles also made me smile – especially Plant Tango and Last Dance. I love the oranges of sunrise and sunset. Last night I saw a bright orange to the west, then turned around to see a rainbow to the east. The comb was special.

    • Thanks, Robert. Funny, there was a pretty pair of ducks in this small pond and I was standing there admiring them and suddenly realized this enormous heron was standing motionless about three feet to my left. He continued to pose while I took his portrait which was rather amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Wonderful sightings, Jane. I am a sucker for water drops so obviously the Palm an Sedum shots are my favorites. But I also liked the reflections in the tubas and, of course, the opening sunrise shot.
