Port Angeles sunset with fire haze – magenta halo with Nikon D7000

2015-firehaze-sunset-haloHey shutterbugs!  Anyone have tips on removing the magenta halo around sunset shots?  I have tried the natural and vivid picture settings and this halo shows up with both settings.  Appreciate the help! – Amelia

Breakfast salad (Sideboard -Danville, CA)

Salad for breakfast? Hella yeah!! Baby kale, poached eggs, bacon, shaved fennel, parmesan cheese, and goddess dressing.  What’s not to love?? Still my fav at Sideboard in downtown Danville.  Yum…

Love our planet and all creatures big and small (dolphin – Big Island, Hawaii)

Celebrate the earth by taking care of this planet that feeds our hunger, quenches our thirst, and gives joy through playful dolphins, stunning sunsets, and colorful flowers.  This dolphin played in the wake of our catamaran earlier this year on the Big Island in Hawaii. The sight of this dolphin reminds me how much I care about keeping our oceans clean for our creatures to swim, play and be part of our lives. Our planet takes care of us and it’s up to us to conserve, keep our waters clean and our soils healthy and free of toxins.  How will you celebrate, show gratitude, and take care of our generous planet today…and every day?  When we take care of our planet, we take care of ourselves.  Love and light…
