The Balloon Ride
10.2.08 - Fire in the Sky. Blame Lady Kate for this one! Another beautiful day here in the UK, and lots of photo opportunities. I thought long and hard about using this one, especially as it is from the same place as yesterday's DP, but couldn't resist it in the end. I took loads of shots to try and capture this view. It was really difficult getting any sort of balance between the foreground and the incredible sky. I ended up quite a long way away, almost laying on my stomach at 200mm. People couldn't work out what I was trying to photograph, until I invited them to "lay down here with me"! I got a few funny looks, but eventually the assembled throng realised what I was doing!
11-23-12 This is one of my favorite images that I decided to share.  Critiques Welcome.
Normally this a dry lake bed in the desert. Not so dry this year. With a nother storm brewing I couldn't rezist capturing the clouds reflections where they are seldom seen.            I'd also like to thank everyone for all of thier inspiring and encourageing comments. Alot of people ask about the pp. Here it is (HDR) normally +3,normal,-3 stops.

11/23/10 - Tree in the Fog  I have been watching and studying this tree for a couple of years now.  Whenever there is fog, it seems to stand out from the backdrop...a solitary, lonely figure.  I finally made up  my mind yesterday to figure out where to park the car to get out to take a picture...not a small feat.  I do try to stay safe, but this location is more precarious than some.  Most days I am joyful as I spend time with the kids.  My life is full of laughter and color; it's vibrant and full of life like many of my pictures.  But some days at least deep inside it is like this too.  I guess a bit of that side is slipping through today.  I stopped to think about my mother for a few minutes when I took this.  She was involved in a horrible traffic accident with a tractor trailer on a foggy morning in November just before Thanksgiving in 1985.  For me, the fog will always be more than just the fog.  Back to bright and cheery tomorrow I promise...  Thanks for your comments on Johnny and the Jon boat.  It was as serene out there as you thought.  Little wind, warm sun on our skin, very few boats out on the lake...a calming hour without the chaos of life.  HAGD, Maryann
I was looking for something to photograph during the week of fog, and I found my subject, the Alex Fraser Bridge.

Getting the shot at Horseshoe Bend.  Not my preferred view in which to be photographed.  Since I am the family member who is rarely captured in photos, the reason that I was preserved for posterity in this unflattering position is that I am terrified of heights and, after hiking about 1/2 mile to reach the Horseshoe Bend Overlook, I discovered that the ONLY way to get a shot of the bend in the Colorado River here is to get out to the absolute edge of the sheer cliff dropoff.  No way that I could make myself get out there in a standing position.  Even then, without a fisheye lens, you would not be able to get the whole bend in the picture.  Luckily, I had my fisheye lens.  After walking all around the edge and confirming that they only way I could get a shot of the famous bend was to be on the edge, I lay down and inched myself out so that I could hang my camera over the edge to get some shots.  The shots I got are here: http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/Landscapes/Northern-Arizona/11896740_iVsC7#842028150_NVySM.  Not fabulous and I'd like to try again on a cloudy day or at sunset.  My hubby, who was holding my other camera, decided to take advantage of me (not for the first time) and took this shot.  I intended to post it right after returning from the trip but other shots kept getting my nod, so I forgot this one until I ran across it this evening in my Northern Arizona gallery.  Hope it gives you a chuckle!  Thanks for the comments on my shot of the milkweed pod and seeds.  Hope your week got off to a good start and that you are finding a few moments to take some shots.
August 30, 2009 - "1941 Ford Super Deluxe"    This was shot at the Palm Springs Air Museum.  The SOOC had so many distracting reflections that I could not work around.  So, I thought I would push this beautiful stock '41 Ford to this extreme.  I do not see to many candy apple red cars around anymore :)      I just competed a gallery with the SOOC and several other cars from the museum.    http://dakotacowboy.smugmug.com/Cars/Palm-Springs-Air-Museum-Cars/9405377_H6KiD/1/630121733_CxF5M    Airplanes from the museum are at another gallery     http://dakotacowboy.smugmug.com/Military/Palm-Springs-Air-Museum-2009/8329002_YUVa2/1/578640610_Q5Nsr
