After The Rains…

I was disappointed with the clouds this morning after driving into Red Rock. I’d hoped for much more moody photos of the clouds crawling across and down the mountain ridges but the low pressure system had mostly moved away already. This is what I got this morning…

Better than nothing I guess. I expected some specific roads to be flooded and/or filled with gravel from the flooding. Nope, just a bit of light gravel across where the Washes cross after seeing the flooding around Vegas. Nope! All in all Las Vegas has fared far better than California did with the horrid mud slides within the forest fire burn areas in which I believe twelve people lost their lives.

While I dislike California for various reasons, I’d never wish such terrible things on anyone.

California Beach Bikes

This is what these two guys riding these bikes told me they are called. They had these bikes strapped on the back of their California car so I assume they know what they are talking about! I did look up these bikes, what I saw looked nothing like these bikes.

The simpler looking bike was welded together and never painted. They both have three speed shifts with the shift mechanism inside the rear wheel hub. They have custom chains as well, I’d love to ride one! But it was windy as HELL this day. Vegas Wind Storms!

A low pressure centre was literally blowing through the valley which blew me ass over tea kettle while squatting down for the shots. Love these bikes! Don’t love being blown over!

iPhone Photography

Well, I got out and about today to get some things done including getting a trailer hitch added to my pick-em-up. In my haste to get out I left the Nikon at home and decided to try the iPhone out a bit more.

Each of these images are directly out of the iPhone except resizing and adding a watermark. How are things in your world today? It’s full sunshine and 81 degrees here!
