Photography Explorations

We applaud this photo taken in Half Moon Bay by InMenlo co-founder Scott Loftesness. It captures the winter light so well that we selected it to accompany the latest rain report.

Yes, it came overnight — again! Reports InMenlo weather watcher Bill Russ: “Another .05”. Now 4.8” season to date. A year ago the total was 6.6”.

After blue skies appeared in the morning, more rain arrived around lunch time. Bill emailed: “Another .05″ bringing year to date to 4.85”.
