Autumn - November 2, 2011     Thanks so much for all the very generous comments on "The Grid" photo yesterday. It was posted a couple of times before only to be ripped down by the "Snake" . Looks like it wouldn't die after all. It is one of my personal favorites as many things came together to get the shot. As it turned out I was trying to shoot blue jays on a fence when these black birds showed up everywhere. The background is a building with a corrugated siding which add the lines. The background colors near the bottom are from rust and mud. I added a graduated filter in processing to the top to give it some extra pop. Everything else was straight from the camera.      Thanks again so much from a great community of photographers.   Jeff Graham
28.04.10 - Kaleidoscope   When I walk into town I try to plan my route around photo opportunities, indeed I do the same if I drive in too. But this afternoon I was on foot, and on the way home I took a detour through the Arboretum to see what was new. As it happened there were plenty of new flowers in bloom, which gave me the opportunity to grovel around on my stomach to see what outrageous bokeh I could manage to get!   Apologies for any burned out retinas that might be caused by this riot of colour.

The Journey begins...    Please accept my apologies if I do not get to your shot right aways.    Please let me explain.    Taking care of my mom is virtually like taking care of a toddler. She can only take a few steps and she has to have diapers. I giver her meds to her, I get her up and in the wheelchair to take her to the dinning room to eat. She can feed herself so that's good. Basically when she needs something I have to get it. So if I don't comment right away I haven't forgotten you I'm just in the middle of something.    Have a GRATEFUL day.      and smile...    *

Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs has fantastic views, throw in a thunder storm and things get real interesting. Sharp eyed viewers will spot a climber on one of the formations.

Sunday, May 15, 2011   "ANTIQUE CHEVY"  (pp version)  "Keep calm and drive a Chevy!" ~ Unknown Author  Linda (aka Lgood) is one of the absolute best at capturing automobile shots and their reflections, and I immediately thought of her when I spotted this GM classic. Unfortunately, there wasn't an information card, so I am unsure as to the year of this "oldie but goodie." My hubby's guess is it's a "1930 something Chevy." The pink sign made spectators chuckle. It warned, "UNLESS YOU ARE NUDE.....PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH MY CHEVY! BUCKLES, BELTS, AND BUTTONS SCRATCH."   As you can see, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped.

God is and has been exceptionally kind to all of us; have a blessed and safe Sunday, everyone.

12-26: Another from the golf course on Wednesday morning. There was a heavy frost on the trees which, in this shot, was helping to pick up a glow from the sun.
February 21, 2011 - "Restoration Questionable"  This vehicle is on display in front of some Key West stores.  I did some research and believe that nameplate on the hood is part of the original vehicle.  Your response to my Key West sunset image was greatly appreciated.
Hummingbird - I am a bit ambivalent about this shot because the hummer's iridescence is just SOOO high voltage, but I decided that maybe it was worth featuring as a daily.  This is best viewed in the largest sizes.  Quite a lot of you are wondering about the shutter speed.  It is 1/1600 sec.  I've found I can usually freeze hummers at about 1/1200 sec. or faster.  I bumped the speed up on this day because it was exceptionally bright and sunny!  Thanks to all of you who commented on my shot of the white cactus flower.  Much of the snow melted today, although it kept on snowing until about 11 a.m.  The wedding shoot went well, I think, although I've not yet looked closely at the images.  They'll keep me busy processing for several weeks.  Hope every has a chance to get outside and enjoy nicer weather today!
Two Minute Blue Hour, Lake Sam Rayburn TX    A view from the new beach we've found at Lake Sam Rayburn.  I can't stress enough how cool this beach is.  My photos don't really give any sense of what it looks like, just the view.  I'll have to take a video the next time we're there.  Maybe I'm just really excited because the previous 20 or so lake views we've scouted on two different lakes have mostly been a bust.  We're really looking forward to spending the day there sometime in the next few weeks and exploring it further.      This is a single two minute exposure taken some 20 minutes after the sun went down.  This is one of the last shots of the night and it was getting dark fast.  I'm always surprised how much light I can continue to capture long after the sun goes down.  I used a 3-stop hard-step graduated neutral density filter to block three stops of light above the horizon.  I've always admired the abstract feeling of really long exposures on the water, and it has been a goal of mine to make some really long exposures of my own.  I've still got a lot to learn.  I'm also trying to break my habit of using 17mm and f/22, but habits are hard to break.    QUESTION:  I'm interested to hear your thoughts about the color temperature of this photo.  What color temperature do you think I used for this photo?  What's your best guess?  What is the appropriate color temperature for this situation 20 minutes after sundown?    Critiques always welcome!    Daily photo: August 29, 2012, taken August 26, 2012
Turtle (Pic 249 2nd year - 24 Sep 2009)  (D300 17-55 2.8 lens)  No crop or PP except light adjustments.     Shot at Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery near Galle, Sri Lanka.     Kosgoda is famous for its turtle hatchery operated by the Wild Life Protection Society of Sri Lanka. It was established in 1981 to protect Sri Lanka's turtles from extinction. The hatcheries pay fishermen for eggs that they collect at night along the long sandy beach. Visitors are shown the huge tanks filled with new born but lively hatchlings. After being fed the hatchlings are taken to the sea and released when they are 2-4 days old    www.javeri.net
'Flight of the Wasp'...9/28/2010...    At least, I think it's a wasp, cropped quite a bit to eliminate clutter...
I waited for 6 months for the sun to go down in the midle of the road. Fortunately it did not rain that day. I brought a boy with me to wave good night to the sun. Suddenly I saw the birds comming from the left, and got them in "the decive moment".
