365  Passiflora   D300 with Tamron 90mm macro ISO400 f9 at 1/200    This was shot at cousin's garden at Ahmedabad.  No crop or PP except for a bit of colour correction.     Thanks again to Bill (Pador) for recommending this lens!     ==== ONE YEAR COMPLETE! ====   Today's picture is special. It not just marks my 365th contribution to the Daily gallery, it reminds me that its been a year here. A year-long experience of understanding and learning about new cultures, places and people; a year-long association with like-minded people and a year-long friendship with so many of you. The encouragement and support I've got from all of you in this duration, is something I cherish and respect. Looking forward to many many more such interactions to come.     www.javeri.net
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!
Oct 7: Up close and personal I went out for my walk at lunch yesterday with the intension of getting a better shot of the spider from yesterday.  I had my SB800 on the bracket so to light the subject better than the onboard flash.  I did and I got some flowers and I saw this honey bee.  I think I chased him around for quite a while but it was worth the effort.  I got really close before he flew off on the last few shots.  The sun gave me front lighting and I used the flash for side fill light.  It was a fantastic day at lunch with over 100 pictures taken.  I have never done that in 30 min before. Have a great day!
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
6.27.2011. We found these wonderful windmills overlooking the nice little town of Consuegra, Spain. There are 11 of them sprinkled here along with a small castle that was closed :( While they are not the ones that Don Quixote did battle with, they are the same types.   The funniest thing was that one of the windmills is a little tourist shop and we stopped there first to get a cold drink. The shopkeeper told us we could climb the stairs and look out, so up we marched, and as we climbed he loudly sang  The lady's very pretty  The lady's very nice  The lady's very pretty  I'd like to kiss her twice!     Oh those Spaniards!!!     Thanks everyone for all your comments, it's so fun to be home and be following all the great pictures in the dailies.
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!
I was looking for something to photograph during the week of fog, and I found my subject, the Alex Fraser Bridge.
Went to my friends today and caught this little squirrel peeping out of one of her squirrel boxes.

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.
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.
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
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.
Cabin-0461

This is what home looked like early Monday morning. The trees, especially the two corkscrew-willows, were simply amazing with all the wet snow clinging to them. Since I don't see it very often, one thing I had forgotten about snow is it's tough to shoot! The light was only favorable for a short time and the wind was enough to ruin a lot of the more graceful scenes early on, but it certainly was a pleasant change from all the dead winter vegetation. But all that's over now - Bring on Spring!
