That was the view yesterday morning while driving along County Line Road, the road serving to mark the boundary between El Paso and Douglas Counties, here in Colorado.
A cloud had been hovering in the area since the previous evening, and as clouds and sub-freezing temperatures are wont to do, they coated nearly everything with frost.
Before I continue, I should give a nod to a huge milestone since I started this blog. For the first time ever, and three-quarters through the day, I’ve had zero visits or views. Mind you, soon after I started this post, I had one visitor and three views.
I’m coming into focus, coming into my own . . . anyway, on with the post.
After I took this series of photos, I went out on a two hour drive, and the next post will have those photos (taken with my Nikon), some 130 of them. No, I won’t post all, but darn near.
I mean, if no one is going to look at them, why bother to make the post manageable to read?
Meanwhile, these were snapped with my Samsung, processed in Snapseed, imported into Lightroom (part of my backing up regimen), and exported for this post. The above is one of my shrubs.
Here is one of the decorative pieces in my front yard.
This next one is one of the many pines that hatched from seeds, and are growing in my yard. We’re waiting to see how well they do, and eventually we’ll replant.
Snapseed has an HDR option . . . wanna see it?
These are two views of the aspens guarding our drive.
These kind of shots are a tad outside the capabilities of the phone . . .
Even these, while OK, are pushing the phone a bit. The low light and low contrast make the phone good for these kinds of shots . . .
While OK, even those shots are somewhat blah . . . hence why one has to be creative, have a vision . . .
These next few were taken during my drive . . . much better, and more latitude with composition . . .
Well, that’s it for this post. I’m gonna go watch Man of Steel.
Perhaps I’ll do the other post later tonight. Or not. I suppose tomorrow morning will do just as well for all them people waiting to read it.

Astute persons might have noticed these doodles, and correctly surmised they hold some significance for me, and perhaps for humanity at large.
If you click on the doodle, and nothing happens, this is the link it’s supposed to go to: http://disperser.wordpress.com/2011/12/26/palm-vx-and-i/.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me some recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline nominations whereby one blogger bestows an award onto another blogger, or group of bloggers. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I would much prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would actually mean something to me.
Should you still nominate me, I will strongly suspect you pulled my name at random, and that you are not, in fact, a reader of my blog. If you wish to know more, please read below.
Note: to those who may click on “like”, or rate the post; if you do not personally hear from me, know that I am sincerely appreciative, and I thank you for noticing what I do.
. . . my FP ward . . . chieken shit.
