05.02.10 - Eclipse  We had a big orange hazy sunset this evening. I was trying to avoid my usual big sky type of sunset photo, so I put the long lens on and had a play around with silhouettes. This one took my fancy :)  There is a slightly different version here;  http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/Photography/INSPIRATION/10329875_Lpojy#781730475_NvGeX
A different perspective on the statue of the horses.  Someone asked if the horses were meant to be wild horses and i believe they are.  It truly is a magnificent statue, one I pass almost daily.  Thanks for all the comments on the fireman climbing the ladder statue shot.  I really appreciate your input.  The week is nearly half over...hope yours is going well.   Amazing group of shots today and i loved perusing them!
This is Willie, my neighbor's cat. Willie is 13 years old and has a mean streak in him. He will let you pet him, but, only three times and then he attacks you. His owner can't even pet him. And apparently Willie has a great memory. Day 16:365 @sharkbayte  I am hoping Wilie stays up on the board this time around. Seems he has been removed a few times already. He's really a nice cat! I swear!
Monday, July 9, 2012  "NIIJIMA FLOATS" by Dale Chihuly  "Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity that you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach – how you look at things. Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing is not purely economical, then it is creative.” ~ Osho  SOOC, uncropped  An encounter with Dale Chihuly's works is always a spectacular reminder that glass is not just something to see through or drink out of. Up to 40 inches in diameter and 60 pounds, these large spheres have surfaces richly colored with gold and silver leaf and foil. They are named for Japanese fishing floats Chihuly found as a child on the shores of Puget Sound and the island of Niiima, Japan, which Chihuly visited around  1990.  Artist's Statement...........  "I've never done anything like the Floats. They are probably the most monumental-looking, since there's no reminiscence of a container shape. Just because they are so big, the Floats are technically, or let's say physically, the most difficult things that we have ever done. Even though a sphere or a ball is about the easiest form you can make in glass, when you get to this scale, up to forty inches in diameter, it becomes extremely difficult." ~ Dale Chihuly  Dale Chihuly's official website is www.chihuly.com  Have a marvelous Monday.

24.12.09 - Christmas Eve  Fog was the order of the day today. We've had a slight thaw, but tonight it is back below freezing again. I had a wonderful photo walk round the Cathedral this evening. The combination of fog, floodlights and the golden limestone was magical as always. This will be a very familiar view to most of you by now, but each time I stand here I see something different. By the morning I'll have a whole gallery up so you can share tonight's walk with me.

May 25 - Fastball  To answer the question before it is asked, yes the ball was really on fire. The answer to the second question, a little on the tip of my index finger, which is why it is more bent in this shot.
October 23, 2009 - Leaves of gold
Day 26 - A lioness photographed last spring in a wildlife park.
It's Mister dirty nose!
February 6, 2009    Lonely - but hopeful?      edited to add - thank you to everyone who commented.  I had held on to this photo for a few weeks now - it is very personal for me.  Has been kind of a rough 6 months for me emotionally and this photo really hit at my core.  I wasn't sure I was going to post it - but for some reason this morning - it was ok and I did.       I guess this is just one of those rare photos that reaches into you (the person taking it) deeper than many others and becomes special because it really speaks to you.  We all like most of our photos - otherwise we wouldn't share them - but for me - as I am sure it is for all of you - we have the one or two rare and special ones.  That is what this one is for me.      I really wasn't sure what the reaction to it would be - your  comments, your kindness, your encouragment and inspiration mean so very much to me.    Thank you.
Happy Easter (4-8-07)  I found the bird that lays the easter eggs ;).  It's a Lilac-breasted Roller.
Day 113 - A stellar's jay, captured in my yard, as it was trying to get peanuts from a wreath peanut feeder.  Although the light was quite bright when I took this shot, using my 400 mm lens at 1/8000th of a second, it was not bright enough to keep the image from being noisy.  I have cleaned up most of the noise because I like the bird's position, but there is still a tiny bit of noise in the image.  We have lots of stellar's jays in the Black Forest of Colorado where I live and a few regular blue jays.  It is almost midnight and I have been processing images almost for eight hours straight.  I'm going to post this and go to bed.  Have a great day!  Thanks to everyone for their comments on my iris and peony images, as well as my image for the "Liquid" challenge.  I really appreciate the time you all take to provide feedback and support.
I have many many rose shots to share but this one keeps tugging at me. Taken outside our favorite coffee shop.  Geraniums are loving the cooler weather this year. June 19/13
1/16/09  AMERICAN GOLDFINCH  Not as sharp as I would like, but I sure liked this little bird.  It is perched on top of a discarded Christmas tree that I dragged home to set up for the birds to take shelter in for the winter...it's a great prop, btw....  :-)  It's currently -8.7 on the digital thermometer ..wind chill expected to go up into the -20's  For some of you that's a warm up, but it's pretty wicked outside here!!
