Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

A Spontaneous Photo Outing To The Salton Sea Last Night.

Yesterday the sky was filled with interesting clouds. I had just finished shooting a baby shower and wanted to shoot for myself. Jen was up for the 40 minute drive to the Salton Sea, with the hope that we’d get a phenomenal sunset. Driving in to the Salton Sea Recreational Park we were surprised to find we were the only people there except for two fisherman on the opposite side of the inlet, where we ended up parking. No people. Very few birds. And….a ever growing dense cloud cover that would prevent any kind of sunset color. Oh, it was 100 degrees, humid like sticky and wet even standing still. But we stayed. And we even stayed when we got out of the car only to be attacked by flies that covered all the moist parts of our bodies (which was everywhere). Swatting the flies didn’t work. We stayed, occasionally forgetting the irritating, sometime biting, flies by throwing myself into trying to find something of interest to shoot.
As evidenced by some of these photos I shot, photographs were there for the making.

The best photos came long after the sun set….when it looked dark and drab. But if the exposure is long enough, there is always light. And there was.

  1. Great quote: “But if the exposure is long enough, there is always light.”

    Jen with that ever-ready smile. The powerful silhouette of the fishermen, the foreboding sunset, and the herons that danced for you.

    An eye for the magic of vision.
