Looking up a Palm Tree!
One of these days this Palm is coming down... but for now it gets it's picture taken!
The lemon's are blooming!
Native to the Nevada Desert these Joshua Trees are all over the place.
Liked this Snowflake ornament on the tree!
Thankfully brown snowflakes don't occur in nature! :)

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
I've always been fascinated with blurred shots of Christmas Trees
Day 339 of 365
Spent a few hours at our families cabin in the local mountains... This tree has survived the past 30 years. My grandparents built our cabin and didn't want to cut this tree down so they built the deck around it. We were getting ready to leave and I couldn't wait for the sun to get any lower so I decided to shoot a few bracketed shots and try HDR. Of course I didn't have a tripod, as I don't own a working tripod at this moment, so this was taken hand held. I liked the way it turned out.
Day 110 of 365
Spent a few hours at Springs Preserve with the kiddos today and this is the last photo I took and this is my favorite... It's definitely different for me and that's ok..
Day 47 of 365
I started a Springs Preserve Gallery here: http://www.sandquistphotography.com/Photography/Springs-Preserve-13/28042310_gc54vk
I had initially pulled off the road to try and capture the setting sun on the snow covered Sheep Mountain range and realized I was a disappointed that I was really too far away and then I turned around and saw the setting sun behind these cool Joshua trees...There's a bit of sun flare in this image, but I liked the shadows and the cool clouds.
Thank you to all the commented on my Fencepost photo yesterday!
Day 40 of 365
At the end of the day I raced outside to see if there were any cool clouds in the sky! While I was a bit late to find the cool clouds I did find some cool light on this palm tree. Take with an iPhone 4s using the TrueHDR app, most of the processing done in the app, but I did export to Perfect Photo Studio for a few quick edits, some before and afters can be found here: http://www.douglassandquist.com/tech/cool-palm-day-11-of-picture-a-day-2012
Also thanks for being so kind to my sister, who just joined our community on Jan 1st... her Gallery is located at http://wendyr.smugmug.com
I was over at my Mom's tonight and hadn't had a chance to see her tree this year, and tonight I noticed it and decided to include as my picture today... It's a pretty tree for sure!...
Ps hard to believe I only have 5 more photos to 365! Man this year has flown by!
Fun Ladybug on a leaf Tree ornament.... I liked the Bokeh and glow of this image...
J had a great time trimming the Christmas tree this year! The lower branches are filled with ornaments... the top, not so much...
