My Weekly Gallery Updates are about sharing photos I’ve added to the gallery section of this site. The galleries are my way of creating a visual approach to searching for hikes by having collections of photos that link to information about hiking to where each photo was taken.
This week I’ve added five photos to the Blue Sky Backgrounds Gallery. Having taken well over 15,000 snapshots in Angles Forest in the past two years, I started seeing unintended patterns in my photography. Over time, recognizing these patterns has made me conscious of trying to add more snapshots to the series. It turns out I have a predilection for the simplicity of a subject set against a blue sky.

What is the tree with green pods? Great photo of the raven on a dead branch!
It is a yucca. Thanks, for mentioning the bird is a raven. I’m never sure if I’m looking at a raven or a crow.
