Chicago River View, Chicago IL    Nini and I are in Chicago for our annual conference.  We drove in the rain all day yesterday and then were very busy meeting our colleagues once we arrived.  I noticed the sky changing on our walk home from dinner, called the valet to bring my tripod from the car, and rushed out to see if I could make a photo.  I only had time to take two shots!  Seriously, I released the shutter only two times and was off.  I used spot metering and the zone system to get the exposure close on the first shot, reviewed and adjusted my composition, made a minor (2/3d stop) exposure adjustment, and took this second shot.  I hope to find a better composition tomorrow if we have time.  As most of you know I'm a bit a perfectionist so it was really hard to just take two shots and run.  But that is why I practice so much at home, so I can get the shot when it counts.    Daily photo: April 14, 2012, taken April 13, 2012
13FEB2013  One Million Plus  Awarded Second Place in the "Nature Category" n4c.us in March 2013, submitted through the Omaha Camera Club.  Went down to Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge yesterday......lots to see!  These are Canadian Geese, there were  over six hundred trumpeter swans too....  Just before the mass lift-off there seems to be a lot of discussion in the pond about just that......then from almost total silence they start and it sounds like a freight train coming toward you, the sky goes dim and all you hear is the birds wings flapping, totally astonishing.  Its forty degrees out and the wind is out of the south at ten to twenty MPH.  So we got two goose bombs to the windshield that was the extent of the crap.......literally, i too though it would be everywhere. Also there were no impact deaths from inflight collisions...on our part of the lake, the carnage is laying all over the place though, some caused impact craters two feet in diameter, surely would have killed a human on impact.....in all my years flying thats the scariest thing to go through, a bird strike.  Have a great day!
3rd year Pic 335 - Sep 17 2011   Killer smile!  Day 1 - 17th Sept.    Hi friends! I could not post / comment yesterday as we all were busy with the new arrival.... Meeting visitors, receiving calls, texts and mails AND taking pictures!  :)    http://hershy.smugmug.com/Photography/Daily-third-year/12987576_NS8Rf#1483106858_x87hq3Z    I shot this today at the hospital before coming to work (I work Saturdays) and hope you will not mind my posting two pictures on this special occasion.
Just as you leave the state of california on the I-5 North to Oregon, you see this fantastic snow-capped mountian called Mount Shasta.
4th year Pic 164 - June - 28 2012 Bullock cart Elephant Park, Chiang Mai, Thailand. This is the bullock cart used for rides for visitors.   Sorry I have been AWOL! Had got caught up with work and then was out of town for 5 days. Have to catch up with many great pictures but there's tons of work pending too! :-( Will try catch up soon.
I miss the frost, fog and sun... - Feb 5 2009  No opportunity to shoot pictures today... so this is a shot from the past frost period. It was a candidate for my alternate gallery, but I might as well put if here! God, I miss that kinda weather. Now it's just dark and wet here.
6/18/12 - Bell pepper in the clouds.  I took a mirror outside and placed it so that it reflected the clouds.  I had to be really careful because it also reflected the sun.  Thanks so much for your warm response to my shot at the Broadmoor.  I know how much time commenting takes and I do appreciate your stopping by!
When I saw this opening in a fence at the Denver Botanical Garden and this view through it, I knew I would want to make it a daily.  Some folks may think the workers and the tractor spoil a rather idyllic scene, but I rather like the down-to-earth aspect of what it takes to keep a huge botanical garden looking its best.  Thanks again for your comments on the daily yesterday of Chyler, the little girl baby in the swim suit.  I sure appreciate everyone's thoughts.  I never cease to be amazed at the variety and quality of the images on smugmug.  To paraphrase, so many photos, so little time...
11-8-2010...  Flamin Water...
Sedona, Arizona - taken very close to sunset when the red sandstone rocks really glow in the light.  Thanks to those of you who commented on my shot of the two silhouetted dragonflies on the rosebush.  Take lots of great shots this weekend.
August 9, 2011-After the rain and thunderstorm the sky was amazing. (221:365) Thank you all for the amazing responses to my photo yesterday, you folks are the best!
102010  Hector Falls    This waterfall is probably the most convenient and cooperative in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. It sits right next to the road and flows under a bridge just north of Watkins Glen on the east side of Seneca Lake. You could get a great view without getting out of the car!
Into the smoke This gallery is a collection of some of my favorite shots.......as you will see my interests are all over the place ! Your comments are welcome.
Fog! - Jan 08 2009  Had fog most of the day and combine that with temperatures below 0C°... and you get great effects on trees, leaves and so on. I shot these trees before, but they weren't good enough as DP. Now, with the fog and frost added they do.  Had a rather hard and long day at work, so commenting on your pictures will be mostly for tomorrow.
