Made from ash

Just playing around, trying to learn about my camera settings. This was the no-flash feature...who needs a flash with all these lights?

It was a foggy day today with so many perfect photo opportunities. There were so many shades of gray. But it just didn't happen for me today. This ornament, made from the ash of Mount St. Helens will have to suffice. It's amazing how such vivid and beautiful colors come from gray ash! How do they do that?!
