SkyWatch #69: Golden State of Mind


Golden State of Mind, originally uploaded by M'roy.

Before we left for our November Europe tour, I deemed it necessary (yes you read that right) to get another point and shoot camera as a back-up to the one I am using and to the bigger one my husband is using. I don't know how I convinced my husband to spend another $100+ on something that is truly not necessary, but I did.

So I went to Costco and got the Nikon Coolpix which was on sale the week before our departure. And this image was the result of testing it out. Taken from our front yard. I know I should have done some cropping here, mea culpa.

  1. I think you deeming it necessary makes it needed. Great shot with it, love the soft tones.

    You MUST see "Twister". I deem it necessary. ;o) What? It worked for you...

  12. Beautiful layers of gold and black. And I agree - of course it was necessary to have a back up! Hope you enjoy it!

  15. Please keep the original. I think cropping will the picture injustice unless it is necessarily for other purpose. What a fitting title. Been thinking about my own state of mind. :)

  20. I think it's quite lovely. Of course you needed another camera, and obviously your husband saw that as well.

    Looking forward to seeing what else you capture with it.

  21. That's amazing! It looks like it could be somewhere in the desert. I just bought a point and shoot too. I almost bought the Nikon but got the little Canon instead. I haven't downloaded any of my test shots yet; hope they turn out as good as yours!

  25. Don't even think mea culpa, I think it is beatiful as it is and it would have been a pity to miss any bit of it.
