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!

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
November 28, 2010    Hello to everyone!!!!    First let me say thanks to all the comments on the last few Daily photos I've posted this weekend, particularly the scary spider shot.  I've certainly enjoyed browsing and commenting on the OUTSTANDING photos that you all have posted in the last several days.    This is a shot of some roadside weeds (or maybe some sort of grass) that I shot in the late afternoon.  I liked the way the sun seems to make the fine strands glow.  The shadows were adjusted and I added fill light with Picassa.  Hope you enjoy the effect.    Have a wonderful Sunday evening!    Cheers,  Linda    PS - Papa says this is Green Foxtail.  Thanks Papa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Day 90 - The late afternoon sun highlights the clouds over the front range and Pike's Peak in Colorado Springs.  This image is better viewed in  a larger size.  Have a great Wednesday, everyone!  Thanks so much on your comments on Spencer's jumping pic, as well as all the ones on the scene outside Victor.  I really appreciate each and every one!
11-05: I was driving around south Fort Collins in an area I don't think I've ever been and I actually got kind of lost for a while. The street ended at this pond so I stopped and took a picture. Yesterday was cloudy with dark clouds that looked like rain clouds - very unusual for this time of year in Fort Collins.
August 8th:  Late this very warm and very muggy afternoon, Eleanor and her daughter were flopped in the backyard.  I politely asked Eleanor if she'd pose for me before getting treats and this was her response.    Her daughter is here:  http://www.garneredimages.com/Fauna/Yard-Pals/1783134_c7R2c/5
Yesterday I woke up at sunrise. The sun was barely over the horizon at southeast. As I looked out of my bedroom window I saw this landscape to the northwest with the full moon as a golden coin. I at once grabbed my camera, opened the window even as the temperature was minus 10° centigrade and made some shots. Here is one of them. 10 minutes later the sun was well over the horizon, the sky was lit and the moon hardly to be seen.
12-03: I took this Monday evening at next to a pond near the Environmental Learning Center. We've been having some awesome sunsets here lately. I think this one looks kind of like a painted sky! Unfortunately, it's a little soft because this was handheld and the VR switch on my lens was switched to off. That VR really does work!
3rd year Pic 266 - Jun 30 2011 View from Cottage   Club Mahindra, Munnar.  This was shot from outside our cottage and is a 3 shot HDR.  Munnar is one of the most popular hill-resort towns in Kerala in southern India. The name Munnar is believed to be derived from the Malayalam/Tamil words Munu (three) and aaru (river), referring to the town's strategic location at the confluence of the Muthirappuzha, Nallathanni and Kundaly rivers.  Set at an altitude of 6000 ft in Idukki district, Munnar was the favored summer resort of the erstwhile British rulers in the colonial days. Unending expanse of tea plantations - pristine valleys and mountains- exotic species of flora and fauna in its wild sanctuaries and forests - aroma of spice scented cool air  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munnar http://www.munnar.com/
5-23: This is a bridge over the Podure river north of town. You can see that it is really greening up around here!
Picture #191      -Painted Sunrise  Just a photo I revisited after hearing the seminar and trying a few things...  I never take what others say even if it is at a seminar as gospel...  It may be something that worked for them but I still use my own head and try different things.    clarity- adds shadow to dark areas, vibrance-  is far better than using saturation because it makes all the colors brighter and he stated rarely do you need all of them brighter.   Vibrance adds a color punch to in areas where there is less saturation.  1) It makes any color that is dull more bright, 2) it does very little to the colors that are already bright, 3) it does it's best to avoid skin tones altogether... so is much more controllable than saturation is....  well, that's what the speaker said but each to their own I say you know best what works for you..  this is an old photo from 9/09 that I had never processed because of the difficult lighting but was much easier trying some of the new techs..  have a great day.. I get to babysit Chloe again Mon...  :-)  connie
22.3.09 - Comfort Zone  When I joined the Dailies just over a year ago one of my stated goals was to "get out of my landscape comfort zone". There have been times when I've retreated deeply into my comfort zone, but this weekend hasn't been one of them. I've been working as a stills photographer on this project  http://www.theladyofshalott.co.uk/index.html  and today was the last big film shoot. My main role was to take individual shots of the actors for their portfolios, but I also took a lot of candids and general shots to record the event.   All will be revealed in late May when the film is launched, but until then the imagery and style of the film is being closely managed. I can honestly say that I've never worked with such a wonderful bunch of talented individuals, and the whole experience has been magical. Unfortunately, I now have to process so many photos that I'll be AWOL from the Dailies again for another day or so. I know you'll be patient with me, and I hope this photo will maintain your interest until I can reveal a bit more :)
A beautiful monarch butterfly .  I photographed this colorful creature before he headed out on the long journey south.   Have a great day all...
