"Dear me: Stop being so hard on yourself. Stop judging your own work against professionals who have put in years of labor to get where they are. Keep working and keep learning."
With that in mind, here's today's effort. (At least the one I will show you). This is a scene from a hike in the Hetch Hetchy in June. It's a part of the Yosemite National Park that most people don't go to see because it was flooded years ago to build a dam. The colors are off and the composition lacks something, but even in the yuckiness I have learned a few things. I guess that's progress.
