    It's April on the International Dateline.

    Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

    I have been working on this one for a bit, but can't seem to get it quite right. Do you think it might help if I tried it in black and white, or maybe selective color?

    Is it the strong green background you don't like? Why not just pull that channel down a bit rather than going B&W or selective colour? Anyway I like it as it is.


    Another one from my walk the other day. I just liked the look of the logs pilled up in the middle of the Clent Hills.

    Another half bottle of scotch? Now I see why all your lady friends agree to have their photos taken.

    Hahaha...no, not this one. She doesn't drink.

    Candice is rather inspirational actually. It was not that long ago she was involved in a horrific car crash that left her with a broken neck, confined to a wheelchair and told she'd never walk again.

    Not only is she walking again, she's training kids how to box. She initially came to me for some shots so she could have some rather impressive before and after photos. Has since become my favourite.

    That's a great turn around. Broken neck to boxing instructor. Glad it worked out for her.

    My home. Well, this is the view from our neighborhood.
    Yorba Linda in front, and mount Baldy, covered in snow, in the background.
    This was shot on New Year's Day 2015. Right after one of the few storms we've had all year. That explains the relative clarity of the view (it's normally rather hazy).
    As some of you may know, California is currently in the 5th year of a severe drought and emergency water conservation measures are currently in effect in much of the state.
    Needless to say, those mountains did not retain that snow for more than a couple of days.

    Sorry, just a feeble attempt at some April Fool's Day humor...

    My batteries had gotten low, so I was having some sync issues with my background light, resulting in the black bar at the bottom of the frame and ghosted silhouettes of the wings. Oh, and the birds' eyes were closed. Just the sort of thing a little selective color treatment might fix. ;)

    Another one where I had the wrong lens. I've been to this spot many times as it is very local to me, but normally it is busy with dog walkers etc. I enjoyed the quiet for a change, but is was very windy.

    A solemn start to April for me as my mum had to have her beloved dog put to sleep due to heart issues. Here's a pic of him that I may have posted before.

    Going WAY back to my early 2014 vault. My first full year of playing photographer.
