hard to see in the pic but there is a ring of fog in this marshy field. I think it's lower down there.

Terrible photographer (yours truly) but starting to see a bit of leafage. Deer Creek Canyon Highgrade, SW of Denver, from yesterday. Oh, and a Pegasus crossing (might have to zoom in on the sign).

I use the paid Camera+ app on my iPhone. Allows you to individually adjust focus and contrast. Good editing features also.

Tap on the camera screen where you want the light meter to read, then a little yellow box will appear, you can then slide your finger up and down on the right side of the box to adjust the light balance.

...and that's a painting from an actual photo, so we know that wing placement has to be right.

the wife and I on our tandem took a ride through this fantastic cemetery. it is a bike route to get over this large hill. its been around since the early 1800's the crypt is just out there on the long road up to the cemetery. it seems about the oldest thing there I found the name in the records and maybe 4 people in it but no date. but it seems around 1800 I love how the trees are snacking the graves I guess I missed getting a pic of a very fancy crypt with stained glass windows in back. its all uphill and some roads say no bikes. but most of it you can cycle through. its a good workout even on a e tandem. jhell of a pile of dirt though I bet it is only from the newer graves. a lot of woods and valleys and a great river view to keep the spirits happy and content.
