Blue Vista

I just had to get a rainy day shot looking down from Monterey Hills. If you click on the picture and enlarge it, be sure to notice Pasadena's Colorado Street Bridge and the Richard H. Chambers U.S. Court of Appeals Building.

Do I like the picture? Do I like it?? I just love it!! You've captured not just the look of a rainy day, but the feel. The colors are amazing.

I like that color combo. Always have.

Did you use your Zoom on this shot?

You posted a very similar photo, except that it was a sunny day, last Fall resulting in my first comment. It's been very enjoyable following your journey through South Pasadena.

Don't like the hot. Feel cooler looking at this cool picture. Bow toward the AC. Take a cool bath and wish.

I love this shot !!! It is so atmospheric with a real sense of receding back into the distance. Thanks for the suggestion to enlarge it. I love that bridge and drive it often.

This is not our typical June Gloom!!! And Dixie Jane, I found myself asking for hot weather today...I'm such a spoiled California girl...give me blue skies, sunshine, (but, I have to agree, not too much heat!!!) and I'm a happy girl...this June gloom has me in the Gloomy Gloom!!! Where's our afternoon sunshine???

Great photo...but I think I'd prefer the one DBD mentioned with the sunshine!!! So sorry for my gloomy diatribe...as soon as the sun shines again, I'll snap out of it...

This is a shot I grew up looking at---when we had rainy days like this.

Thanks for the memories of my younger years!
