One day I'll get to the top of that sodding mountain... but not today

Yukky compact blue sky
It was more like this.
What I love about this rude sign is that it feels as if the owner had been interrupted all day and then got up to paint it.
Vauvenargues again - the last home Picasso bought, the scenery Cézanne painted, the bloody mountain that I tried to climb again and failed - on the first day of spring.

This time it was my friend's fault. No honest. Actually, we were both knackered. Another time maybe.

I took a compact with me because I had to carry everything and I remembered the last time. This hideous blue behind Picasso's château is a typical example of "compact sky". The B&W is an attempt to circumvent it. Nothing doing.
cariad Like the first one particularly...and the view and sky in #4 is fabulous. The sign made me laugh...in the uk we clearly do as we are told without explanation...and we are clearly not headed for Paris

SADHYA Why does a compact do this to a perfectly lovely blue sky? I'm sure you are the man with the answer.
I love the first shot, in fact I felt compelled to put it into my favourites, (well I have just had a rather large G&T) but I am confident that I will still love it in the morning.

joycephotography You often here it's the photographer not the camera that captures great photos. I know you are a great photographer, so the camera does make a big difference. I was using a Sony Cybershot all last summer, did not even want to post alot of my images.
Great post.

jennye I love the first shot and the b&w.

Beejay Nice set. I know what you mean about the sky. A polarizer would have done it but you don't have that option with a compact. I do like the weathered branches. BJ

????? Don't worry, you're still in your prime. You'll make it some day. Hope you had a great birthday, btw. Wasn't online so I failed to congratulate you in time, but, as they say, better late than never, whether it's about reaching the top or instructing someone to have a happy birthday. Bet you're still celebrating! :-)

MoMac I like the first one too.

girafferacing LOL, perhaps it'll be third time lucky?! Does your compact do RAW? That would solve the sky problem!
