After Cap Rock we piled back into the car and you can see the near foreground motion blur in the first photo again. On the way back to Palm Springs we passed through a wind farm with snowy mountain backgrounds.
Well, I hadn’t intended to change the look and feel of the place for 2020 but WordPress posted notice of a new theme for 2020 and I thought I’d give it a whirl. Only I hit the wrong button and instead of testing it in the sandbox I activated it. But I really didn’t like it (some of you may have seen it there for an hour or so, all cream colored with red-wine highlights).
Then I couldn’t remember or find the old theme so I had to go through them all to find one I liked. Then I discovered it hadn’t kept track of my randomized header images so I had to select and crop and test a bunch of new header images and randomize them. And finally I took advantage of the imbroglio to update some of the widgets and menus.
Approaching the short Cap Rock trail in Joshua Tree National Park by car, I continued to shoot at 1/250th of a second yielding the same motion blurred foreground and sharp background.
