More Black Forest Trees

Here's another photo taken in the nearby Black Forest Regional Park, which is unfortunately too well-named since last year's wildfire.
Lew asked me last week whether these trees would sprout new growth. They will not - they were killed in last year's wildfire and will eventually topple. There is some growth on the forest floor, but it will be decades before trees of this size have replaced all the dead ones. And this is my Skywatch Friday entry for the week.

Our Laika

Her previous owners are leaving the country and can't take her, so we've taken Laika permanently.
She's settling in comfortably and made herself at home.
And she's getting on well with Socks.

Burned Trees

They finally opened Black Forest Regional Park; much of it burned in last year's wildfire and it took a long time to make the trails safe. Here's a shot of a couple of burned trees. I've got more to post from this walk. (Click on the Wildfire link to see more from that fire.)

Here are some shots of the Edna Valley Vineyard near San Luis Obispo, California. There's something unique and beautiful about vineyards.

Beach Sunset

From the same Pismo Beach evening as the last set of photos, here's the sun going down. There's nothing like a sunset at the beach, with some mountains in the background. The light changes so dramatically.

Wiesbaden (1)

I just got back from a short trip to California - I took a few photos but it was mainly to see family. Instead, for this week's Vintage Weekly entry, here's a shot from Wiesbaden, Germany, from 1977.

Recent Rainbow

It was more impressive in person, but here's a photo of a recent rainbow for Skywatch Friday.
