    Detour ahead...

    While on my way home from work the other day I decided to take a detour just for something different. Here are a couple and I'll have a couple more soon. These are taken along the coast near Half Moon Bay, CA.

    Cheers,
    Jared

    Love the Bovine

    It's nice what unexpected things we find on detours...

    poor bored looking bull/steer/whatever they are called

    great detail on the clouds..

    The cow I can't figure out why you have so much blurred area in front of the cow, I think this would work better with much more infinity DOF, show the sereaness of where the cow is grazing (can't tell if it is a bull or a cow the back half is missing).

    And the point of the clouds I am lost in.

    Just my thoughts.

    These would be worth framing and hanging on the wall. I especailly like the colours in these images, which is what I noticed first.

    Enjoy your trip home.

    It was a bull, part of the grey area I think you are referring to is a row ofbushes down in a valley behind the bull. He was standing right up by the road...unfortunately the other blurry grey part is the fencing which I really couldnt avoid much unfortunately. I have more of the bull in some other shots but they had more of the fencing thru the middle of the shot.

    The clouds? well I just thought they looked kinda cool at the moment, no other real "meaning" behind that one, hehe. Just enjoying the scenery of a different way home. But thanks for looking.

    Is this second photo upside down? The one that looks to be of dandilions?

    I love your cloud bank and your pink hanging flowers

    LOL, actually the more I look at it, it is upside down, oops. And I don't think that they are dandelions as they were quite large, like 6-7in diameter. I could be wrong tho as I do not have a green thumb.
