08-17-11 Ruby-throated hummingbird; best viewed in the largest sizes.  Taken in Teal Campground in southern Colorado.  Thanks to those of you who found my photo for yesterday and liked it well enough to post a comment.  Much appreciated.  Have a great day!
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!

6/16/09  River Reflection    The  Manse Boat House located on the Concord River near the North Bridge.  Both Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne lived and wrote while staying at the Manse house.
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
12-15: Sunday we woke up to more snow and bitter cold. When I took this picture in the afternoon it was only about 4 degrees F! The sun was causing some fog to form over Horsetooth
August 5th, 2008 - We like to go at the lake after dinner when it is hot and humid. Nothing beats a dive to cool you off! Have a good day! JY

I captured this photo in the open ocean, just after he exited the San Francisco Bay.  Needless to say, these were challenging shots to obtain - as my sailboat was going up and down and sideways, my subject was doing the same - and we definitely weren't in sync!    Even open-ocean sailors reported the sailing conditions to be very severe that day.  Articles of the race reported "Conditions were severe under the bridge, and got worse out in the ocean.  It was so rough that Second Verse, a Cascade 36, was hit by a wave and knocked down until the spreaders were under water."  Dave was competing against 14 boats of all types, broke his boom during the trip, and finished the race in 17 days and 3 hours.  Not only did he place second in the race, he received the Single Handed Sailing Society's Belt Buckle, and the Foxxfyre Trophy for creative ingenuity under sail, because after breaking the boom in the race, he repaired it and kept on sailing!  Incredible!
