The one advantage of daylight saving time is we now have more daylight, at least for those of us that are not in favor of waking up early.

For a moment, the idea crept into my mind to make a trip to Folsom Lake after the recent rainstorms.  The lake level has risen 30 feet and may have brought the water level back up to the stone remnants of the town of Red Bank (or what most people incorrectly refer to as the town of Mormon Island).  Reflections and stone ruins make for better photographs than stone ruins backed by dirt.  Unfortunately, the sky was clear and there were no clouds to reflect off the potential pools of water near the stone walls.

So it was back to driving along the the hillsides nearby for studies in contrasts and shadows.
