January 14.   This is a 100 year old summerhouse in the dunes just 100 m. from the beach. I shot it just before sunset in order to get the glow in the windows and the dark BG. The foreground was darkened in order to draw all attention to this well-preserved house  .
2-05: Another from Monday evening. I was actually hurrying to get to another location and kinda liked the look here so I snapped off a few shots. I think it sorta looks like fall colors on the trees
Day 26 - A lioness photographed last spring in a wildlife park.
April 28    Yes....I missed uploading a DP for yesterday!  By the time we finished that 24 hrs. of frivilous fun in the desert area near Ridgecrest (California), I was too tired to tend to my DP; I'm admitting it!!   Had another outstanding day today; ending our trip by arriving in our own little hometown at sunset!  This is what we were watching while driving the last couple of miles down the highway!  SPECTACULAR!!  What a "welcome home"!   Took the first available offramp in order to catch this shot!!  (Tough choice, though!  This was right after a double rainbow which we also pulled over for!!)    We did spend some discussion as to how difficult it was going to be to choose a DP for yesterday, and today!!  Over the next several days, I will be using shots from this trip as DP's, as I add photos to the gallery.

5th year Pic 002 - July - 05 2013.  Butterfly park Changi airport,  - Singapore   Pic by son Jay     Critiques welcome!
Blif is a little annoyed to be distracted by a photographer
8/19/12 - Black bear; best viewed in the largest sizes.  Photographed at Bear Country, SD.  When I took this shot, there were probably about forty bears within the range of my camera.  They were all moving around.  It was a hot day; this one has just gotten himself wet down by a hose. I found the bears to be difficult to shoot, as their faces were so dark.  I had to use the exposure compensation to lighten the face enough to pull out the detail there.  Thanks for the comments on my daughter's cat.  Much appreciated.  Constructive criticism is always welcome.
3rd year Pic 313 - Aug 26 2011  Magpie Robin  Khem Vilas, Ranthambhore    More pictures at   http://hershy.smugmug.com/Travel/Ranthambhore/RT-June-2011/17444320_Qps9C3    The magpie-robins or shamas (from shama, Hindi for C. malabaricus)[1] are medium-sized insectivorous birds (some also eat berries and other fruit) in the genera Copsychus and Trichixos. They were formerly in the thrush family Turdidae, but are more often now treated as part of the Old World flycatcher Muscicapidae.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magpie-robin
August 27, 2011-Caught another Promachus - Giant Robber Fly in the field by some power line towers. I was actually looking for some dragon flies but never saw any. The winds started picking up over night. So I am going to post early while I still have power. Stay safe everyone.  (239:365)
5-24: We were trying to find a place called Butterfly Woods natural area and this very friendly horse ran over to the fence and let us pet her and feed her some grass. There were some cool patterns in the sky above so I decided to get a shot.
October 10, 2009 - "Majestic Yellowstone Morning "    This two stitch image was shot our first full morning in Yellowstone.  The mountain splendor was highlighted in the early morning light.  Yellowstone is not a place for sleeping in!  We were on the road at 730am each morning we were in the park.
May 2:  Leaf: It was windy here last evening when I was doing the POD and we found this bunch of leaves on the back deck when we out to get something.  THought I could make something of this so I brought it in to try.  Very late last night I had an idea when taking shots and this the result.   This is not a crop, but a full shot with my macro.  I lit the leave with one SB200 flash (small) from the rear at a 45 degree angle to the leave to get this effect.  The veining on the rear popped with this lighting. EXIF: D200 on a tripod ISO 125 1/160 sec, f/9.0 +1/3 EV single R1 SB200 flash
August 28, 2010 update - "Clouds Over Grapevine"  An 8x10 version of this photo won Best Of Show and 1st Place in the City Views category for the annual "What's Great In Grapevine" photo contest.  There were 106 amateur entries in the juried contest.  January 31, 2010 - "Last Train To Ft. Worth"  This was shot last Sunday at the historic Grapevine, Texas railroad station.  I was checking out a Lake Grapevine marina for photo ops but did not see anything I liked.  On the way home I noticed there were not many cars parked at the railroad station, so took the opportunity to shoot.That makes two Sundays in a row that my alternate venue has worked out :)  Tourist trains run from Grapvine to the historic Ft. Worth Stockyards.  footnote to Ed's comment - was shot HDR
The will to grow where the light is - Jun 1 2009

Flowers and plants can do amazing things... they'll try to reach the light no matter what! Hope you all had some sunlight today (I had way too much again... one never learns!)

Hope to catch up with you guys and gals very soon!
