April 14, 2011-Hiding out.  While, I was coming around the back of the house I saw 6 cats scatter. This guy is the littlest cat from the group. (Day 104:365 @sharkbayte)
Larger than lifesize sculpture of horses near the Briargate Shopping Center in Colorado Spring; shot lying on the ground looking up with a fish eye lens.  Thanks for all the comments on the shot at the skateboarding park.  It was a busy day and I didn't get around to commenting until late at night, but, as usual, there was lots to inspire and admire.  Hope your week gets off to a great start!
A view of our recent snowstorm from an upstairs window.    The reunion is over.  Our dinner party was a lot of fun, but I'm pretty wiped out.  Tomorrow, though, I'll be back to my regular routine and I hope to catch up on everyone's photos.  Have a good beginning to the week.
05/09/11 - Wilow the Red-Tailed Hawk  The boys and I went to Noah's Landing  in Coats, NC yesterday for their Mother's Day special event.  Along with the usual animals, the wonderful people with the Wildlife Rescue Center in Sanford were there.  If I counted correctly, they had 8 birds onsite yesterday including this beautiful red-tailed hawk named Willow.  As usual, I spent quite a few minutes taking pictures of the birds and talking to the volunteers.

He's not afraid, and he is curious.    Thanks for all the Mother's Day well wishes and for the comments on my iris picture.  HAGD, Maryann

Trust    DP135-2013  Posted May 15; processed ditto    Songbirds in the woods around the Nature Center have learned to trust humans who hold out food for them in their hands.  (Signs along the trails politely ask people to feed the birds ONLY by hand, not to put food on the ground for them, and NOT to feed the cranes.)  On the last day of my sister's visit, we walked in these woods and fed the birds.  Feeling their almost negligible weight and the tiny prick of their claws as they land and daintily snatch the chosen seed is a pleasure beyond description.

Hot Pink Cool Purple, Lake Sam Rayburn TX    Wow I've got a lot of info for you today, so I'll get right to it:  This is a single four minute exposure of the same composition I posted on Monday  from our Friday night outing with the dogs at Lake Sam Rayburn.  If you're interested in the technique, this one is the same as the previous except I actually metered and then added a 5 stop neutral density filter so I could make a really long exposure.  It was getting dark so I had to go to f/8 to get enough light in.  This one was taken some 5 minutes later when the light on the cloud was fading and the colors were peaking.  The colors become a lot more saturated with these really long exposures and I've read that the color builds up as it changes during a long exposure.  I'm not sure if that's really the reason, but I'll go with it until I'm convinced otherwise.      This photo made me rethink color temperature once again, and I tried to find out what the "correct" color temperature setting is at this time of day (roughly 15-20 minutes after sunset).  Along the way I found this sunrise and sunset calculator that also provides some indication of color temperature.  Scientifically I think that there is a "correct" color temperature for every kind of light, but artistically everything is subjective.  WHAT DO YOU THINK?  The color temperature I used for this photo is 4095K, but not because the color temperature chart told me to.  I just liked the combination of cool and warm colors at this color temperature.      I've got a deal for you!  A friend forwarded me this great deal on canvas prints.  It's through AmazonLocal, a subdivision of Amazon that I had never heard of before.  It seems to be something like Groupon, which I've only had limited exposure to.  Anyway, there are a lot of great deals on there.  In this case you buy a voucher redeemable for $90.00 on printing for $35.00 (and you get free shipping with the voucher too).  I bought one and used it to buy a 36x46 rolled canvas print that regularly cost $99.00 + $8.00 shipping, but I only had to spend $44.00 ($35.00 for the voucher and an extra $9.00 for the large print size I bought).  The sale runs out in 6 days or so.  I don't think I'll have my print in time to tell you how good the print quality is, but at this price I think it's worth the risk.  I love having prints made and have prints laying around all over the place.  WHAT ABOUT YOU?    Critiques always welcome.    Daily photo: September 13, 2012, taken September 07, 2012
1/4/09  ICE POPSICLES  These icy globs were created by the cold and wind and the lake spray along the Lake Erie's coast.  As the water would splash over the huge boulders holding the shore in place, some would splash over and into the grass and create all kinds of frozen wonders.  View larger for more detail :-)

October 23, 2009 - Leaves of gold
Blif is a little annoyed to be distracted by a photographer
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
