This week’s travel theme on Ailsa’s terrific blog Where’s My Backpack made me think of some nice nature (of course) silhouettes I’ve taken in the past. Here are a few of them, hope you enjoy!
This was taken from my porch when I lived in Mendocino County in a tiny, middle-of-nowhere, off-the-grid cabin; my favorite place I’ve ever lived!
This is in far northwestern California; when I parked at the side of the road to sleep in the back of my pickup, I saw these lovely painted clouds with silhouetted trees in the foreground.
Joshua Tree National Park; one of my very favorite pictures I’ve taken (which is why it’s my RewildWest avatar!!)
This is an unmodified shot from the Marin Headlands looking down into the Golden Gate; something about all the red of the bridge and lights tinted the fog that color! It was dark out, so my shutter stayed open for about 6-7 seconds. I like how the natural silhouettes of tree and cliff contrast with the man-made bridge and boat!

Last week my fiance Rebecca and I went on a spectacular road trip to eastern California, viewing a number of the incredible sights along Highway 395. Travelogues and pictures will be up soon, stay tuned! Here’s a lil something to whet your appetite, a picture I took:
Mono Lake, tufa formations, snowy Sierran mountains, and a gorgeous sunset reflected on the calm glassy waters of this incredible 760,000 year-old lake.
