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.

danrav Love #1. Hope you make it Stefan!

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

ilikethat Added the first shot to my favs, so many cool tree posts today

????? 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! :-)

Annbramwell Love the gnarly tree in No 1...

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!
