Eating Apple Sausage under A Spooky Sky

These apple sausages have been begging to be cooked, so late last night I gave in and tossed them into the Breville countertop oven. Yum! No more staring at me every time I open the fridge door.

The sky photos were just toss-away photos taken with the Sony RX100 well after dark last night, but I thought to try to do something with them via the iColorama app on the iPad. Not a total loss I guess…

Wilson Comes Indoors

Wilson came inside last night, so I put him on the range top so he can see what’s going on. He looks as though he’s going to be turned into Tortoise Soup, aye! Maybe I’ll let him stay indoors this winter…

There was an OS update for my Macs yesterday.

The OS was updated to Big Sur which is a nice improvement over the last one. However, the update has caused one problem for the HDR software I use daily so these photos are without that extra processing.

I hope to figure this out soon, otherwise, I’ll have to find different HDR software which sucks. Today’s forecast is for sunshine and 68 degrees, very nice actually!

Cutting Back

It was time to cut back the Lantana a few days ago. They had a great summer of multiple blooms, giving me several photos to share with you and enjoyment for me.

I will try repotting them come spring in larger pots as I suspect that they are both rootbound. I included the forecast for Las Vegas Valley too, not too shabby for November, eh?

Knowing the weather here as I do, I assure you that those temperatures will fall at some point which I will share in this space should anyone really care.

A Few of My Best Photos

Since I have nothing new to work with today, out came the trusty external SSD backup disc. Why not dig through the folder labeled Best Photos for a change?

Once in a while, this amateur photographer gets the shot just right both in taking the photo and in processing. Not the best photos ever captured, but I am damn proud of them!

There are many more than these ten photos that I feel are some of my best photography in that folder.

Beautiful Rain Sails

Since it’s been breezy and overcast most of the day, I grabbed my Nikon with the zoom lens attached and headed for the backyard. I snapped ten photos of this wonderful view, these are the best of them, three others still in the Process folder.

The clouds are moving north or northeast as is the wind on the ground. It appears that the clouds are moving faster than the rain can descend toward the ground, hence the curves to the left.

Photos like these would be more difficult to capture back home in Michigan if for any reason, the number of trees everywhere. The lack of trees here, more so on the mountains until you reach an Alpine altitude I think it’s called, is something I really like. Wide-open spaces!

Still Hanging On!

This is one tough Lantana! The other plant has been cut back as it just shriveled up and gave up last week, but this guy keeps on going and going. It’s going to cool down just a bit in the next few days to the thirties at night and the upper fifties or low sixties in the daytime do let’s see how long this one can hang on.
