Nothing beats the colors of the sky over the dry desert air of southern California. The dry air of summer mixes up with the Fall weather fronts and creates unbelievable colors and contrasts. None of the photos are “photo shopped”. The image is directly off my Nikon D90 camera, without any retouching. The full-size image is even more dramatic.
Enjoy! If you wish, upload your favorite picture with a short story of why it means something to you. Some other pictures studying light and contrast and shapes can be seen on my Facebook photo album.
