DailyPhotos - Most Popular All-Time
July 6:  Mr Spidey Yes I know, ooohhh youck a bug :).  I was out looking for a pod, had my 18-200 on and was prowling the neighborhood.  I found nothing spectacular, just a few shot.  Most of the flowers are dead now due to the excessive heat and the lack of water we have had.  I had found a whole 4 shots which were not much when I spotted this guy on the weeping cherry in my front yard.  I went in the house and got the 105 macro and the R1 flash rig.  I set the flash units on the ring at 0 EV and -1.3 EV and went out.  He was still there so I fired away.  I took about 30 shots to get a few good ones.  He was a fast moving little guy and I chased him around the tree while he was spinning his web.  In the end he stopped and was doing some furious work with the front legs and then disappeared.  When I looked he was on the ISO knob of the camera checking me out.  He is only the size of the thumbnail on my little finger so he is small.  I did crop the shot for less leave and better view.  I added +5 black and +16 clarity in Lightroom.
"Sun kissed wheat fields"  Call me crazy ! But nothing can beat the feeling of standing in between those wide spread wheat fields , stretching one's arms open and taking a deep breath looking at the sunny blue sky :-)   	 	   “Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.” ~ Storm Jameson ~
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.
Sunday, February 20, 2011                  "O is for ORNAMENT"  "A true friend is someone who knows your faults and genuinely loves and accepts you anyway." ~ Unknown Author   SOOC, uncropped  This is a beautiful, crystal Christmas tree ornament that was a gift from my best friend in 2009.  I turned off the lights in the room to darken the background. Also, I intentionally did not position the camera to center the photo, because I had an "eye" for something different. Additionally, before I pushed the button to take the picture, I twisted the hanger to make the ornament spin - thus, the variations in color. Finally, as the French saying goes, "Voila!"

10.4.09 - "The Ladye"
May 18, 2009 - "If You Can't Play It, Flaunt It"
1-23: Quite a dramatic view of the out house near River Bend ponds. I never posted the color version but I like the B&W better. It looks like it's out in the middle of nowhere but actually it's pretty close to the parking lot - I have to walk passed it to get back to my car. This was taken shortly after sundown a couple of weeks ago.
May 17...  Behind the dike in the marchland
October 23, 2009 - Leaves of gold
April 25, 2008    Swinging Bridge at Tishomingo, Built in 1939 -     I shot this same bridge about a year ago, and have always liked the pic, but was never really satisfied with it...I'm happier now-    edit: the other shot.  &nbsp
3-18-2010...  Just Squeezin' Green
09/25/09 - I was working at my computer yesterday when I noticed that there was a lot of condensation on the outside of my water bottle.  One thing lead to another, and I came up with this shot.  There's a flashlight behind the bottle that has a lot of little tiny light bulbs in it.  The water droplets took on the pattern of the bulbs.  I turned it b&w, cropped it, and fixed a bad spot on the water bottle that was distracting.  It's different...certainly in my daily gallery next to yesterday's vivid Halloween color shot!  Work was just horrible yesterday.  I hope I get to spend more time with my kids and my camera today.    Thank you all for the feedback on yesterday's glass shot.  You're a great inspiration to me to keep pushing to come up with something even more creative and pretty.    Happy Friday! Maryann  While I wasn't fully awake this morning, I put the caption under the keywords.  Thankfully, I discovered my error and was able to copy the text instead of having to rewrite it.
April 24, 2008    The Tennessee River and the Natchez Trace-    And, we had a little more light for tonight's game...enough for an alternate pic-  Check out the tongue-
May 26,,,   I love this green weed and the toad stools.
July 6: Mr Spidey
Yes I know, ooohhh youck a bug :). I was out looking for a pod, had my 18-200 on and was prowling the neighborhood. I found nothing spectacular, just a few shot. Most of the flowers are dead now due to the excessive heat and the lack of water we have had. I had found a whole 4 shots which were not much when I spotted this guy on the weeping cherry in my front yard. I went in the house and got the 105 macro and the R1 flash rig. I set the flash units on the ring at 0 EV and -1.3 EV and went out. He was still there so I fired away. I took about 30 shots to get a few good ones. He was a fast moving little guy and I chased him around the tree while he was spinning his web. In the end he stopped and was doing some furious work with the front legs and then disappeared. When I looked he was on the ISO knob of the camera checking me out. He is only the size of the thumbnail on my little finger so he is small. I did crop the shot for less leave and better view. I added +5 black and +16 clarity in Lightroom.
