Frozen Tobolsk Kremlin. (1.2.2012)  Off to Rome tomorrow afternoon so may be MIA the rest of the week. Hope everyone's enjoyed their holidays & renewed for a fresh start to 2012.
John Moulton's Barn must be one of the most photographed spots in the Grand Tetons.  Nonetheless, I was anxious to try to capture it.  The morning was quite cold and dreary.  The mountains were pretty well shrouded in clouds.  As I set up my camera and tripod, I thought I had almost no chance of getting a good shot and then, suddenly, the clouds lifted, the sun peeked through and I got a few decent shots.  Hope you like this one.  I was very busy today and did not get to comment on too many of your shots.  I'll try to catch up with everyone tomorrow.  Enjoy your day!
Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY
Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle
"Morning Sun"
May 4, 2008    Full Moon
Magical flight
Mother Nature's Graffiti August 2008 This shot is from the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument on a place simply called "Yellow Rock".  I walked all over the top of this great location and found this pattern in the stone just as the sun was going down and lit up the clouds and distant cliffs.  It is my favorite shot from Yellow Rock.
2-22: This is another from a sunset a few weeks ago. I like this one because as you look at the clouds from west to east you can see the color vary from more orange to more pink
I arrived there in time to catch a little fog for a moodier image.  You can see the Herons nest in the trees. They are pretty far  away. There is a big fence in front of all this so we can't get that close.
2-1: Saturday evening we had quite a nice sunset, so I took a walk along the Poudre trail near Prospect street hoping to find some good views. I found this waterfall like thing.
While trying to capture some ants and aphids in my garden, I noticed this little spider (about a half inch across) with a large fly.  The spider was already sucking the insides out of the fly, which was already dead or paralyzed.  I managed to bring this pair into the house, where I experimented with a number of different lighting arrangements...trying to get the details of the spider, while maintaining a good dof.  It was very difficult and I never succeeded in getting the kind of sharpness and clarity that I wanted.  However, I think the subject is sufficiently interesting to use one of these images for my daily.  The other images from this effort are in my macro gallery (under the "other" category).  I think for this shot, you should probably view it in the original size.  The whole time I was shooting this the spider was moving around on the white paper.  Thanks for your kind comments on my iris pic today.  There were a lot of wonderful images posted today.  By the way, has anyone heard from Dave Dedman?  I haven't seen anything of his in a while and I know he had pneumonia.  I sure hope he's ok.  If some of you are communicating with him, give him my best wishes.
10-30-08  Natural lenses    A tiny spider web and a misty morning give so many lenses ! Hard to keep every drop sharp and to focus on the picture given through the drops ! This one came out good enough among many other shots.     Can you see what was behind ? ^^
Ride 'em cowboy! - This statue, which is lifesize, or even bigger than lifesize, stands in front of the Rodeo Hall of Fame here in Colorado Springs. I shot this with my 24 - 70mm lens, shooting from ground level.  I did not actually have to lie down to get this angle.  Thanks for your support of my shot of the freestyler.  I processed new photos all afternoon until my mouse quit working.  This is the third wireless mouse in a year that has quit working with my mac and I cannot really work with the track pad for very long.  So, tomorrow, I guess I'll have to go in and get another mouse, unless I can convince the Apple store to replace it for free.  It is snowing here a bit and we have to get out really early tomorrow, as Phil has a doctor's exam (just a checkup).  Hopefully, the roads won't be too bad.  Hope your Friday is a good one!
