Some Color To Counter Feeling the Blues

I've had this cold for a week that's just left me feeling totally blah, with a mild headache and without an ounce of energy. Luckily, it doesn't take much energy or brain to sit in front of a computer, and so I thought I'd try to mix in some other colors with the blue this cold has left me feeling.

Here are some colorful shots from one outing a month ago.

The contrast and shadows in the last one grow on me as time goes.

The second-to-last, looking up at a tall tree, is interesting in that you can see the same tree from the exact opposite direction by clicking on its full exif & map link and looking at the embedded satellite image. You can see the specific tree if you zoom in enough. Unfortunately, my lens was not strong enough that I could zoom in enough to see the satellite. (Note to reader: Christmas is coming up, if you want to remedy my lack of powerful lenses 🙂 )
