Ride 'em cowboy! - This statue, which is lifesize, or even bigger than lifesize, stands in front of the Rodeo Hall of Fame here in Colorado Springs. I shot this with my 24 - 70mm lens, shooting from ground level.  I did not actually have to lie down to get this angle.  Thanks for your support of my shot of the freestyler.  I processed new photos all afternoon until my mouse quit working.  This is the third wireless mouse in a year that has quit working with my mac and I cannot really work with the track pad for very long.  So, tomorrow, I guess I'll have to go in and get another mouse, unless I can convince the Apple store to replace it for free.  It is snowing here a bit and we have to get out really early tomorrow, as Phil has a doctor's exam (just a checkup).  Hopefully, the roads won't be too bad.  Hope your Friday is a good one!
I was looking for something to photograph during the week of fog, and I found my subject, the Alex Fraser Bridge.
6/16/09  River Reflection    The  Manse Boat House located on the Concord River near the North Bridge.  Both Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne lived and wrote while staying at the Manse house.
Getting the shot at Horseshoe Bend.  Not my preferred view in which to be photographed.  Since I am the family member who is rarely captured in photos, the reason that I was preserved for posterity in this unflattering position is that I am terrified of heights and, after hiking about 1/2 mile to reach the Horseshoe Bend Overlook, I discovered that the ONLY way to get a shot of the bend in the Colorado River here is to get out to the absolute edge of the sheer cliff dropoff.  No way that I could make myself get out there in a standing position.  Even then, without a fisheye lens, you would not be able to get the whole bend in the picture.  Luckily, I had my fisheye lens.  After walking all around the edge and confirming that they only way I could get a shot of the famous bend was to be on the edge, I lay down and inched myself out so that I could hang my camera over the edge to get some shots.  The shots I got are here: http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/Landscapes/Northern-Arizona/11896740_iVsC7#842028150_NVySM.  Not fabulous and I'd like to try again on a cloudy day or at sunset.  My hubby, who was holding my other camera, decided to take advantage of me (not for the first time) and took this shot.  I intended to post it right after returning from the trip but other shots kept getting my nod, so I forgot this one until I ran across it this evening in my Northern Arizona gallery.  Hope it gives you a chuckle!  Thanks for the comments on my shot of the milkweed pod and seeds.  Hope your week got off to a good start and that you are finding a few moments to take some shots.

August 30, 2009 - "1941 Ford Super Deluxe"    This was shot at the Palm Springs Air Museum.  The SOOC had so many distracting reflections that I could not work around.  So, I thought I would push this beautiful stock '41 Ford to this extreme.  I do not see to many candy apple red cars around anymore :)      I just competed a gallery with the SOOC and several other cars from the museum.    http://dakotacowboy.smugmug.com/Cars/Palm-Springs-Air-Museum-Cars/9405377_H6KiD/1/630121733_CxF5M    Airplanes from the museum are at another gallery     http://dakotacowboy.smugmug.com/Military/Palm-Springs-Air-Museum-2009/8329002_YUVa2/1/578640610_Q5Nsr
Day 90 - The late afternoon sun highlights the clouds over the front range and Pike's Peak in Colorado Springs.  This image is better viewed in  a larger size.  Have a great Wednesday, everyone!  Thanks so much on your comments on Spencer's jumping pic, as well as all the ones on the scene outside Victor.  I really appreciate each and every one!
November 28, 2010    Hello to everyone!!!!    First let me say thanks to all the comments on the last few Daily photos I've posted this weekend, particularly the scary spider shot.  I've certainly enjoyed browsing and commenting on the OUTSTANDING photos that you all have posted in the last several days.    This is a shot of some roadside weeds (or maybe some sort of grass) that I shot in the late afternoon.  I liked the way the sun seems to make the fine strands glow.  The shadows were adjusted and I added fill light with Picassa.  Hope you enjoy the effect.    Have a wonderful Sunday evening!    Cheers,  Linda    PS - Papa says this is Green Foxtail.  Thanks Papa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
31DEC2011  Sunset bridge...  Found this in a park next to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, take time to stop here this was one of the most scenic sunset's i have witnessed for a long time, Blue heron's, cranes, geese, a whole plethora of waterfowl show up here. Three miles north is the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge home of cape's wild horse population. The area is also known for great seashell gathering and Kill Devil Hills is just twenty miles south. This would be a place to bring your paddle craft i saw many photo op's just off the shoreline that would have been awesome provided the temperature was acceptable.  Thanks for all the great comments, wishing all a Happy New Year. #1 Dec. 31st 2011 Thanks go out to Paul Jr. who forces me to get better....Linda who shows me the direction even if it is the internationally known i'm # one sign....Linda's great without her these pictures don't get to you.... the also great DAILY community, thanks for looking hope to see you out on the trail and in the backcountry this year.....let me know how i can help you get there!
August 8th:  Late this very warm and very muggy afternoon, Eleanor and her daughter were flopped in the backyard.  I politely asked Eleanor if she'd pose for me before getting treats and this was her response.    Her daughter is here:  http://www.garneredimages.com/Fauna/Yard-Pals/1783134_c7R2c/5

It is snowing here a bit and we have to get out really early tomorrow, as Phil has a doctor's exam (just a checkup). Hopefully, the roads won't be too bad. Hope your Friday is a good one!
