August 5th, 2008 - We like to go at the lake after dinner when it is hot and humid. Nothing beats a dive to cool you off! Have a good day! JY
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!
22.3.09 - Comfort Zone  When I joined the Dailies just over a year ago one of my stated goals was to "get out of my landscape comfort zone". There have been times when I've retreated deeply into my comfort zone, but this weekend hasn't been one of them. I've been working as a stills photographer on this project  http://www.theladyofshalott.co.uk/index.html  and today was the last big film shoot. My main role was to take individual shots of the actors for their portfolios, but I also took a lot of candids and general shots to record the event.   All will be revealed in late May when the film is launched, but until then the imagery and style of the film is being closely managed. I can honestly say that I've never worked with such a wonderful bunch of talented individuals, and the whole experience has been magical. Unfortunately, I now have to process so many photos that I'll be AWOL from the Dailies again for another day or so. I know you'll be patient with me, and I hope this photo will maintain your interest until I can reveal a bit more :)
3rd year Pic 266 - Jun 30 2011 View from Cottage   Club Mahindra, Munnar.  This was shot from outside our cottage and is a 3 shot HDR.  Munnar is one of the most popular hill-resort towns in Kerala in southern India. The name Munnar is believed to be derived from the Malayalam/Tamil words Munu (three) and aaru (river), referring to the town's strategic location at the confluence of the Muthirappuzha, Nallathanni and Kundaly rivers.  Set at an altitude of 6000 ft in Idukki district, Munnar was the favored summer resort of the erstwhile British rulers in the colonial days. Unending expanse of tea plantations - pristine valleys and mountains- exotic species of flora and fauna in its wild sanctuaries and forests - aroma of spice scented cool air  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munnar http://www.munnar.com/
1-03: Thursday I let my daughter drive up to Horsetooth and on some of the roads up there (she's just started learning to drive). It just so happened that the sky was pretty awesome looking so I had her stop and I took some pictures. As you can see our snow is almost completely gone now :(
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
Des-0253    My energetic niece, taunting me this afternoon at her brother's birthday party.  Normally one to ham it up for the camera, she was being a bit mischievous today and tried to hide behind the door before I could get a shot off.  She almost succeeded but ultimately ended up giving me what easily turned out to be my favorite shot of the day.    Thanks for all the comments on the baseball shot I posted a couple days ago.  I haven't had time to follow up/comment much yet, but I've certainly enjoyed easing back in and seeing/hearing from a lot of familiar folks.
Picture #191      -Painted Sunrise  Just a photo I revisited after hearing the seminar and trying a few things...  I never take what others say even if it is at a seminar as gospel...  It may be something that worked for them but I still use my own head and try different things.    clarity- adds shadow to dark areas, vibrance-  is far better than using saturation because it makes all the colors brighter and he stated rarely do you need all of them brighter.   Vibrance adds a color punch to in areas where there is less saturation.  1) It makes any color that is dull more bright, 2) it does very little to the colors that are already bright, 3) it does it's best to avoid skin tones altogether... so is much more controllable than saturation is....  well, that's what the speaker said but each to their own I say you know best what works for you..  this is an old photo from 9/09 that I had never processed because of the difficult lighting but was much easier trying some of the new techs..  have a great day.. I get to babysit Chloe again Mon...  :-)  connie
5-23: This is a bridge over the Podure river north of town. You can see that it is really greening up around here!
30JAN2012  I have been a little under the weather lately, this is a shot I got from the Indianola balloon festival in Indianola Iowa, it was one of the first images I shot with my first digital camera. I had purchased a five hundred roll pack of film a year prior to this shot and had just run out of film. Paul jr. found the camera in St louis and went and got it for us and off to the races we went.....The camera doesn't fell good in my hand yet but heck I shot almost five thousand frames with that old film camera......hope I get more like this, hope you enjoy it!  I don't have photoshop....background is real, looking toward the North, real hazy out, sun is in and out of the clouds right at sunset, thanks for asking!  I was not in a balloon, they are the last ones up and out...real distinctive crafts, almost like the ones used to go around the world, haven't seen many of this type before this event.  You don't see many with animals on the sides either...  #1 picture 30JAN2012
I got a new camera! I have been working with a Nikon D40 and am now celebrating my upgrade to a D90. Kinda needed to though. My D40 is in the shop....and I have photos to take, darn it.  Over the Holidays I was reading the Twilight series *sigh*...(I know, I know...already to much information;)And finally saw the movie. Then a couple nights ago, I watched Sweeney Todd. I was amazed by the lighting, the colors, contrast of both movies. I love the hair and costume design in Sweeney Todd... I became inspired....and this was my result...  ****Thank you very much for all of the Awesome comments. I must admit though, this is a self portrait. Yup. Me, my camera, tri-pod, and a touch of inspirado.....********
A mother moose seems unperturbed, while her baby looks over at all the people gathered to watch and photograph the pair as they forage in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming; best viewed in the largest sizes.  We just got back from our trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone.  We did not have access to electricity where we camped, so I managed only to upload my files of photos each day to the laptop, but did not get any processing done at all.  No Internet access the entire time.  We had a great time, even though it was often cold and rainy.  We got two inches of snow one night.  I'm anxious to get back to looking at all your great shots.  Hope you like this one of the mother moose and her baby.  We saw them just as we were about to leave Grand Teton National Park.  I was able to watch and photograph them for about ten minutes and was not too far away.  Typically, the baby would let its mother get about fifteen feet away and then it would run at breakneck speed to catch back up to its mom.
22.3.08 - Happy Easter! We actually had some snow showers today, but none of it settled so no snowy DP today. I had to go into town, and on the way back decided to dodge a particularly nasty snow shower by going into the cathedral. I timed it just right for a guided roof tour, and ended up staying for nearly two hours. This isn't my most innovative or quirky shot of the cathedral, but it does show its gothic majesty off best. I can never get my head round the fact that this was all built by hand; no scaffolding, no cranes, no laser range finders, just blood and sweat. I took over 80 photos today(!), so some of them will make it to other galleries when I get chance. I'll probably start a separate gallery for Cathedral interiors, and there were some stunning views from the roof! Happy Easter..........    I've put one of today's efforts here  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4518270_XDZuH#268878026    New Cathedral Gallery now here  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4562724_EH5v6/1/268904689_tgGam#268904689
"A Healing Sunset"  It was a long day today with some bad headache by evening. Instead of adding some caffeine to the evening I added a sunset to feel better. Definitely worked :-)     “Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” ~Rabindranath Tagore ~
Single color . If you look at the horizon line you will see a number of windmills.  We have a lot of offshore windmill parks around our country and they produce 30 % of our total power consumption and this percentage is increasing from year to year
