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.

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
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...    *
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
'Flight of the Wasp'...9/28/2010...    At least, I think it's a wasp, cropped quite a bit to eliminate clutter...
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!
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.
"How Much is that Doggy in the Window? "   This little guy waits at the window every morning for his master to get home from work and you can`t get a bark or a smile out of him while he waits with this sad , little face. I pass by his house most mornings and he hides behind the curtain , but he was braver today.   I`m very tired so this will be my post for the 29th.This was the best I could do with glass between him and the camera..I wanted to pet his sadness away.    This was taken last year 2011 and  , I 've just met the dog owner this am June 19,2012. . Told her that I have this doggy shot for her and she seemed delighted to give me her address so I can drop it off. Thank you to the smug mugger who helped me to sharpen  the colors!

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.
The Grid - October 16, 2011
I was sorting through all of my Colorado pictures and found this one of the fox that I seen up on Pike's Peak. The wind was blowing its hair.

This image shows a the water in a water balloon just after it has been punctured by a pin.  Best viewed in the larger sizes.  This was captured at 1/1000th second shutter speed.  My grandson and I had an entire day of photography.  We started early in the morning photographing red-wing blackbirds, swallows, and ducks at a little retention pond near his home.  Then we shot more birds in his back yard.  Then, we came to my house and punctured balloons, water balloons and played with giant bubbles.  We had a ball!  Spencer is a budding bird photographer and I hope to feature a few of his shots in the next few days.  We are having new carpeting installed in part of our upstairs today.  Lots of fun moving furniture and books to make way for the carpet layers.  Hope you have a fun day, too!  Thanks for all the nice comments on my most recent shot of the peony tulip.
