Cucumber beetle on a straw flower; best viewed in the largest size.  Thanks for the commentary on my shot of the liquor bottle on the grave.  It is nice to know so many of you felt as I did about the gesture.  Hope your week got off to a good start.  It is quite a bit colder here today but no snow so far.  Have a good day!
4.8.08 - Ripples    I had intended to do another SP today, I thought it was about time, otherwise I'd start getting bullied again (you know who you are MB!). But it has been a very hectic day, I'll try to summarise it without boring anyone :)    I had barely finished my breakfast when I got a phone call, total change of plans for today. Apart from a few minutes over a late lunch, when I actually managed to get home, I've been on the move all day. I finally got back at 9pm, with a stack of emails to answer and more phone messages. Most of these mean more changes of plan for tomorrow, and more work, but one was good news, really good news. I have won my first photographic competition, hooray, and this is the image that won. I took it nearly a year ago, as one of a series, and it has remained one of my favourites. I would do certain things differently if I got the chance, but throwing a pebble into a lake to generate your own ripples is a neat trick, if you get your aim and the timing right :)    Unfortunately I have a pile of paperwork to do before the morning, so I can't promise that I'll be able to catch up with the Dailies, but I'll try later. But for now I'm going to have a beer, if I can drink it with this big daft grin on my face :))

February 10...  Beach #4.  Almost every day I take Blif for a walk along the beach. Especially in autumn and winter the sky puts up magnificent shows. The other day this sky came up covering most colors even a bit of green at the left. The show went on for app. 10 minutes, and then it was all over.

19.12.10 - Merry Christmas to One and All  I usually wait until nearer the time before sending out my Smug Christmas cards, but the chaotic way things have been the last few days I thought I'd better "post early" in case events get in the way later.  I actually joined Smugmug 3 years ago this Christmas Day, and the friendships that have followed have been one of the big positives of that time. In a world that sometimes looks like it wants to polarise itself to death, watching the planet turn on the Smugmug Dailies is a timely reminder that whoever we are, there are far more things that we have in common than divide us.

12/21.  Big Sur Sunset and waves_DSC1781.  I captured this at Sunset in the middle of the rocks and waves.  The waves would come crashing in and through this little trough between the rocks.  My friend I was shooting with got stuck down in the trough when the wave came in and almost lost his camera!  Wow!  Thanks for the awesome comments on my image!

050211  Tree in Shohola Falls    Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.
Gorgeous sunrise yesterday!!! The water was so still and the sky had such unique color. I shot all around the harbor for over 2 hours! Unlike today, where I overslept and missed the whole thing!  Plymouth Harbor, Ma
2-02: This is another from Saturday's sunset. Several people have asked if the colors are real (natural) in yesterday's. It was taken as three bracketed exposures but only at -1, 0 and 1. Then combined in Photomatix. Then final processing in Capture NX2 (mostly brightness and focus adjustments) I didn't change any colors. I did actually have to desaturate a little because the orange and reds tend to be over saturated sometimes. I used the same processing on today's post. This one was actually taken a few minutes before the one I posted yesterday, so the clouds are more orange than red or pink
September 11, 2009  John..  I took your advice last night....  half the bottle.  ;)    Yesterday was just one more chapter in a month and a half of nearly constant stress.  It started with a very unpleasant surprise having to do with Ian's job (he still has it - nothing has changed with his position -just unpleasant financial news).  Then some extended family issues that is very emotional and highly charged and yesterday - the air conditioner decided to start screetching like someone was taking a power tool to it.  $650.00+ later we have a new fan motor.  I really wanted to drink the entire bottle but couldn't because I have to be out and on the road by 7:15am. So John (very smart man that he is) suggested I just have half the bottle - which I did.    Emily is home from school today - not feeling well at all.  I will probably have her in to the doctor later this afternoon if I can get an appt. Why do kids (at least mine) always seem to get sick on Fridays and then there is the mad dash to the dr before the weekend hits.

1-16: Thursday morning we woke up to thick fog again. It lasted till about noon. I was able to go out on my lunch break and take some shots along the river right after the fog lifted. The fog had frozen to the tree branches and bushes. I was able to get some shots before it all melted.
Hello All, This is my first image I’ve posted using My new Olympus E-5 set on the dramatic tone picture mode. This beautiful farm field resides in New Tripoli Pa.  Thanks for looking, please feel free to comment.

Thanks for the commentary on my shot of the liquor bottle on the grave. It is nice to know so many of you felt as I did about the gesture. Hope your week got off to a good start. It is quite a bit colder here today but no snow so far. Have a good day!
