I thought I would revisit this very simple challenge today. I first shared the idea with you back in July; boy did we have a beautiful blue sky around here that day! I hadn’t given it much thought since then but while looking for potential photos this morning, and being very disappointed with the pale yucky sky, the idea came back to me.
All you need to do for a different twist on things is… put your camera down! Again I had the wide-angle lens on, this time sat the camera to aperture priority mode, and simply placed it on the ground and pressed the shutter. It’s a lot of fun to look at the results later; you just never really know what you’re going to come home with. You get a kind of mouse eye view of the world.

OH! I almost forgot to tell you a little good news. As you can tell from the water drops on the weeds in that last shot; we’ve gotten a little rain around here. Still in drought conditions but at least we’ve gotten some! Yeah for the cooler weather too!!
