I know most of the country is shoveling out of a rather rough winter, so I thought I would take a picture which shows a traditional Southern California winter. The weather is a little cool today, only in the mid 70s for the day. But I can't complain.
f11 1/400 second ISO 400 Nikkor 18-135 lens at 38mm. Adjusted in Lightroom.
I thought just for fun I would post a different version of a similar picture. I played around with this one in Adobe Lightroom a bit and ended up with a cool dreamy infared looking black and white version. Comment below to let me know which you like better. Thanks.

I know I have been horrible keeping up to date with this, but I do love the challenge, so I am going to continue trying to post a new picture every day. This one, I shot while sitting in my car in a Stater Bros. parking lot. There were some nice birds of paradise in front of me, and all of a sudden this bird landed on top of one. I quickly grabbed my camera, switched to aperature priority and shot off five quick shots before he flew away. It was then that I realised the ISO was set for 1600. Much too high. So unfortunately it is a bit grainy. I tweeked it a bit in lightroom so it is not so noticable, and I am pleased how it turned out.
