Took this picture from Scenic Drive back on December 10.. I like the picture with all the fog.. but I wonder what the heck this guy was doing walking that sand bar off Ellacoya. The sand bar is a loop and he seemed to walk the whole sand bar.

I don't know, Steve. Reminds me of a cartoon of two golfers walking down a fairway, carrying their clubs, in the pouring rain. Two guys are fishing in a pond in the background, and one golfer says to the other, "look at those two nuts fishing in this rain!". I figure the guy on the sand bar is thinking "look at that nut taking pictures on a foggy day like this!". It is all about perspective.

Feel Free. Anyone is free to copy any image I post. I'm not a professional and I don't copyright anything I post.

Just "right click" on the picture and select "copy". If you find that it dosen't fill your screen, drop me a note at steve.anthony@metrocast.net and I will send you a copy that is sized to be a screensaver.
