Green Vale

There is so much brown; the weather has been hot and dry.  Lawns especially are brown, but even many gardens are looking as though they are missing a soaking rain.  But not down here, at the bottom of Vale.  The Cowhorn Creek is low, but it is still flowing, and the foliage is lush as a jungle here.  The cicadas are singing, bees flitting from flower to flower and the fish are snapping up small bugs that fly too close to the water.

I used the old Minolta 50mm lens for this; the camera couldn't record the F-stop, since it's completely mechanical.  I think it was F8.  I tried letting the camera decide on the shutter speed.  Not bad for auto-pilot!

  1. Nice picture. There's no question that it's green.

  2. Looks very cooling and inviting, especially on a hot summer day.
