    Supposed to be 82F here today, and we had a 4.5 earthquake close by at 1:36 AM. Ho-humm.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Damn. Was just about to pack up again and go to the beach to try get some thunderstorm-cloud shots.
    Just as I opened the door the first wind gust hit. A few 30-knot gusts later and the temperature dropped 7 degrees in half an hour. Tomorrow's maximum is going to be lower than last nights minimum.

    Don't think my tripod's really up to that much (or maybe i'm overcautious), and I think the stormclouds are already overhead. So staying in tonight by the looks.

    Just hope my friends out there fighting the bushfires are ok, wind gusts are not what they want right now.
    I know there's a few around here from around the Grampians, hope you're all doing ok too...

    Too bad we can't export rain-otherwise our economy would be booming!

    Northern California here. Constantly dry. We've only had 1 significant day of rain this season and presently it's about 20C which is completely unheard of in January.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Driest year on record, since records were kept. Not what we want or need, rationing of water is imminent. Give us 10C less and rain/snow, please!

    Yes. Record warm temps every day (not hot, and actually wonderfully comfortable later in the day), and our ordinarily damp Jan conditions are
    bone dry. The color in the local hills is stunning. Almost no green, and no tall dry grass either, so exquisitely subtle tans, greiges, and golds - all kinds of wonderful earthtones of the underlying sandstone soils becoming visible in midday light, if one knows where to look. And almost no wind. So I just had to get out last weekend and take a couple of 8x10 Ektar shots. And it looks like more of the same this coming weekend. But I'm sure the inevitable water rationing is going to make me switch to color printing sooner in the season than normal, because fiber-based black and white work uses a lot of wash water.
