10-30-08  Natural lenses    A tiny spider web and a misty morning give so many lenses ! Hard to keep every drop sharp and to focus on the picture given through the drops ! This one came out good enough among many other shots.     Can you see what was behind ? ^^
Hello everybody, I hope you like this image as much as my "Mother Robin" shot. This one was alot of hard work and patience. Also, please feel free to comment, reading your comments and visiting your site makes my day.    The Gray Catbird (Dumetella carolinensis), also spelled Grey Catbird, is a medium-sized northern American perching bird of the mimid family. It is the only member of the "catbird" genus Dumetella. Like the Black Catbird (Melanoptila glabrirostris), it is among the basal lineages of the Mimidae, probably a closer relative of the Caribbean thrasher and trembler assemblage than of the mockingbirds and Toxostoma thrashers.[1]
July 7th  SUNFLOWER BEAUTY   Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments on my flowers.  I will continue to post them without guilt...however, the creative work I see in Dailies has inspired me to try to develop a photographic eye of other subjects as well.  Your compliments and suggestions have been very helpful and appreciated.   The original to this sunflower is below, very little difference between the two, but I liked this one with more "pop" to it. It was taken in the morning when the partial shade cast a bluish hue to the leaves..I liked how it blended with the greens.  Heres the original:      http://Mom4squirrels.smugmug.com/gallery/2452453_zuNLx#327064827_ucnRm
25.11.08 - Men at Work!    I would like to say that this shot was meticulously planned, but of course I was just incredibly lucky :)    Around sunset I happened to be working near a footpath that runs between some sports fields. I thought that I might get a relatively clear view towards the Cathedral, so set off with the camera. I came to a nice gap in some trees and was looking at what I thought was a large weather vane, then it moved! Then the other guy appeared and I realised what I was looking at. The men working on the chimney are about 200metres away, the Cathedral is about 1km away. 5 metres either side and the guys were invisible, so very very lucky. I am so chuffed with this image, and tomorrow I'm going to see if I can find the workmen and show them this photo. There might be a sale in it :)    PS. I've just noticed that this is my 300th Daily :)
February 6, 2009    Lonely - but hopeful?      edited to add - thank you to everyone who commented.  I had held on to this photo for a few weeks now - it is very personal for me.  Has been kind of a rough 6 months for me emotionally and this photo really hit at my core.  I wasn't sure I was going to post it - but for some reason this morning - it was ok and I did.       I guess this is just one of those rare photos that reaches into you (the person taking it) deeper than many others and becomes special because it really speaks to you.  We all like most of our photos - otherwise we wouldn't share them - but for me - as I am sure it is for all of you - we have the one or two rare and special ones.  That is what this one is for me.      I really wasn't sure what the reaction to it would be - your  comments, your kindness, your encouragment and inspiration mean so very much to me.    Thank you.
05.02.10 - Eclipse  We had a big orange hazy sunset this evening. I was trying to avoid my usual big sky type of sunset photo, so I put the long lens on and had a play around with silhouettes. This one took my fancy :)  There is a slightly different version here;  http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/Photography/INSPIRATION/10329875_Lpojy#781730475_NvGeX
Day 21 - A late evening sky at Spruce Grove in Colorado; the image has been enhanced in Photoshop
This big elk was laying at the very top of a mountain in the tundra area of the RMNP.
8.7.08 - Busy Bee.    This is another Daily that came about completely by accident. I was driving to meet the kids from school and had a few minutes to spare, so took a little detour to take some photos of some large round hay bales that I'd seen a few days ago. I took a few of them, and a couple can be found here;   http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4518270_XDZuH#328255423_sfE8d    Then I noticed a strip of wildflowers along the edge of a field of oilseed rape, right under my nose. I took a few of those too, which can be found here;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4328734_9ZqLR#328266774_5HCEd    Then this evening there was a bit of a sunset, and a couple of shots can be found here;   http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4053411_yY5Qg#328260277_Ybmiv    So it was a difficult choice, but I was so pleased at how sharp this little chap came out that he had to be my Daily for today, phew :)    PS. and I still haven't got a proper macro lens, this was hand held with my trusty Nikkor 55-200mm, and it was windy.
"ICE STORM"  We are in the middle of a 2 day Ice Storm here in North West NJ, it hasn't let up for almost 48 hours now and everything is covered in 1/4" - 1/2" of pure ice making traveling treacherous BUT for a photographer it's an awesome site. I didn't get out to the mountains for some full landscape shots so I walked out to my front yard and got some of my trees, bushes & grass that were pretty cool. A Lot of things look like snake skin like this berry tree. I hope this goes away soon, gotta get ready for the snow storm their calling for on Saturday LOL BTW this was shot hand held using my Tamron 90mm Di f/2.8 1:1 Macro, I love this lens !    PS: I have a bunch more ice storm images shot yesterday in my Weather gallery "CLICK HERE IF INTERESTED" Some really cool macro images came out of this storm !    ~Bill~
10.4.09 - "The Ladye"  Time for another photo from the Lady of Shalott project http://www.theladyofshalott.co.uk/index.html The film will be launched next month, but more imagery has been released recently so this isn't giving any secrets away now. This shot is from the first shoot I was involved in, back in September 2008. It was taken in Hartsholme Park at dusk, in an attempt to recreate a famous painting of The Lady, hence the treatment of this image. I have to admit that of all the tens of thousands of photos that I've taken this is one of my all time favourites. I love the dreamlike quality of it, and the simple fact that it is nothing like anything I've ever done before, and it was also a huge challenge to shoot at the time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)  I've been insanely busy the last couple of days so haven't been on the Dailies, but I'll try and catch up over the weekend, have a great Easter everyone!

AMERICAN GOLDFINCH

Not as sharp as I would like, but I sure liked this little bird. It is perched on top of a discarded Christmas tree that I dragged home to set up for the birds to take shelter in for the winter...it's a great prop, btw.... :-)

It's currently -8.7 on the digital thermometer ..wind chill expected to go up into the -20's For some of you that's a warm up, but it's pretty wicked outside here!!
