Day 132 - The morning sun strikes rock formations in the Grand Canyon, as seen from the North Rim in Arizona; detail in this image is best viewed in a larger size.  This shot of the Grand Canyon is one I recently rediscovered in my archives from the early fall and reprocessed.  I used a number of different effects, including Topaz Adjust, Color EFEX Pro, and some regular Photoshop filter and blending effects.  If you view the large size, you will really see some detail!  I'm going to post this and go to bed.  I hope you all have a really nice day!  It is supposed to be quite warm here today.  It got up to 65 degrees in Colorado Springs today, not a good day to sleep away.  Oh. well.  Oh, if some of you should like to look at the other North Rim Grand Canyon shots, they are here:  http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/gallery/6698528_KNq6d#476011624_efKkk.

June 3, 2009  The last dance recital photo - I promise. I just finished processing and editing the final ones this afternoon.     This is the very last pose of the very last dance in both recitals - taken from the finale, which was a tribute to the Beatles.  This is Emily's jazz team. All of the jazz teams dance together during the finale.    If you want to see the video's here is a link    First half - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hkew8MXB_tA    Second half - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ugq5xp33_1s

I just wanted to say thanks so much for all the lovely comments yesterday.    Have a wonderful day.
2.3.08 - Golden Years. Some photos are moments of inspiration, pieces of technical brilliance or snatched opportunities. This one had been meticulously planned for sometime. I have been working out the best vantage points and sunset times eversince I moved to my current home last summer. Mid-afternoon today it was very grey and trying to rain, then suddenly it all blew through and the air cleared. Sensing a nice sunset I grabbed my gear and walked a few minutes to a local hill crest and waited as this golden lightshow developed. It took much longer to select the DP than I spent taking photos, and I will upload other contenders to my Lincoln Sunset Gallery later this evening (see here  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4053411_yY5Qg#260994902 ).    I hope you like this shot as much as I do, and I am so glad that I live so close to this view!

Day 10 - The sun is reflected in water droplets on fir tree needles; please look at this in the large size and you'll see the starbursts in all the water drops.  I took this shot a couple of months ago when we had our first bout of hoarfrost.  I dashed out the take photos, but the sun was melting the frost faster than I could capture it.  I ended up spending about two hours taking photos of water drops all over the garden and yard.  I remember being so excited that I forgot to get breakfast for my poor long-suffering hubby.  You all posted a lot of great images today.  I really enjoyed looking through them all.  It is amazing how much talent is here on smugmug.  I am constantly being inspired to try new things by all the creativity I see here.  So, thanks, everyone for being SUCH an inspiration!  Hope your day is lovely.  I know Dave is getting buried in snow again in Seattle.  I think we're all ready for winter to end.
18.2.08 - Today has been another beautiful day. Hard frost to start, not a cloud in the sky all day, that low mist that characterises clear winter days, and a stunning sunset to finish things off. I often go for a run around sunset, my favourite time of day, and although carrying a camera tends to break up the run it is often worth it. Today was more photos than running, and I might even have a whole gallery for the rest of the shots (here it is  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4363156_BFbUq#256100460 ). But here is today's offering, another take on "fire and ice", reflected sun and reeds in the icy river.
"The Road to Color"  10/16/08  While Driving today I got stuck behind a SLOW POKE on the only single lane road leading out of town and was getting frustrated so I jumped off onto this small fire road and was shocked by the colors in this tunnel like ride. it was raining pretty good all day today so there was no sun and nasty puddles everywhere but I was able to snap this by opening my sun roof and sticking the D300 out on constant focus and shot it while doing about 10 mph. I was amazed by the composition I was able to get since I was in the center of the road and being above the car it gave me some extra height then the usual eye view, I think it worked out pretty well LOL.    In post I did a minor contrast adjustment and small crop off the bottom, that's it! I'm enjoying the colors here now but I see them disappearing very rapidly so I'm going to try and get some shots everyday now until their gone. It's supposed to get very cold here starting tonight in the 50's as a high during the day and low 40's to high 30's at night Brrrrrrrrrr. I got some other shots from today to process yet but I will be putting them in my Fall Colors 2008 gallery when there finished.    Hope you all enjoy your day,  Bill Pador
Nana, a very cute puppy - Jan 24 2009  Today my Caroline had to do her license test agility with Blue (which they passed easily), time to see our agility friend again and some new puppies. This little gal stole my heart instantly, good job she's already taken ;-) So I have to settle with some pictures of her.
