Old Mill in a Western Setting
I was sorting through all of my Colorado pictures and found this one of the fox that I seen up on Pike's Peak. The wind was blowing its hair.

12-26: Another from the golf course on Wednesday morning. There was a heavy frost on the trees which, in this shot, was helping to pick up a glow from the sun.
9.2.09 - Snow and Rain  We woke up to fresh snow again this morning, and although it was cold it was quite a pleasant day. That is, until I decided to go out and get a Daily. I had hoped to take some night snow shots around the Cathedral, but it was raining heavily! The last time I took some photos here I got a ghostly biker zooming through the shot, tonight it was a bedraggled walker. Apart from a crop to get rid of boring foreground this is straight out of camera. Despite me standing over it with an umbrella some rain managed to get on the lens, but I think it adds to the watery scene (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).  For those that like to keep an eye on our Monday Challenges mine is here;  http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/gallery/7093288_hSxt4#470456288_tRiRP

11-08: Friday afternoon I took a walk along the river near a place called Legacy Park in Fort Collins.
The Wonder of Childhood - Two small children are entranced with the fish in a small pond at the Denver Botanical Garden.  There is nice detail if you want to look at it in the largest sizes.  We're off this morning to go camping near Crede, Colorado with our kids and their families.  It is supposed to be pretty chilly up there.  Anyway, I'll miss commenting and posting for a couple of days until we get back.  Hope you all have a great weekend!
4-09: One more fox pup picture. I cropped this one in a little tighter. This little guy obviously noticed me too.
Fading Pink, Lake Sam Rayburn TX    Nini and I were lucky to see a beautiful sunset at Lake Sam Rayburn on Sunday with the dogs.  There were a lot of cool cloud formations.  I think the low layer of clouds right on the horizon made for some extra-special colors in the sky.  The pink swept across the sky from the East to the West.  This was the view just before the pink faded away.      This is a single two minute exposure taken just after sundown.  To make this photo I first found a nice composition, which I really struggled with because most of the cool rocks I've been shooting are now on the beach due to a recent drop in the water level (this area of the lake is pretty shallow so I'm guessing the shoreline fluctuates often).  Once I settled on this composition I played around with several graduated filter combinations until I finally decided on using a single  3-stop soft step graduated neutral density filter to bring the exposure of the sky down closer to that of the lake.  I fiddled with the filter for a bit, making sure it was exactly where I wanted it to be, and took several test shots to double check.  Once the filter was in place and just in time for sunset, I added a 5 stop neutral density filter to increase my exposure time from 4 seconds to 2 minutes.  I like the slow shutter effect in the clouds and water and I like the exaggerated colors that come from really long exposures.  Of course you don't get to take as many shots when you're using really long exposures and in this case I only took four.  After those four shots I removed the 5 stop neutral density filter and took a lot more during the blue hour.  During the long exposures I fiddled with another camera on another tripod, and even took a video I think.  I've been trying to take more video while I'm shooting, but I'll probably never get around to editing them.    Critiques always welcome.    Daily photo: September 12, 2012, taken September 09, 2012
The morning flyout of snow geese at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in NM.  This is actually a tiny proportion of the snow geese that were part of the main flyout.  When that happens, the sky is pretty much covered totally with birds.  There are some shots of that in my "Birds" gallery.  They're not as interesting as photos, but they are pretty interesting in terms of understanding the flyout event.  I was amazed by your response to my shot of the cookware with the reflections.  Some of you wondered where I was, since I didn't show up much in the reflections.  I was off a bit to the side.  Unfortunately, that nice cookware is not mine.  I took the shot at Williams Sonoma.  Hope your week started well and that you have a great day!
Frozen Tobolsk Kremlin. (1.2.2012)  Off to Rome tomorrow afternoon so may be MIA the rest of the week. Hope everyone's enjoyed their holidays & renewed for a fresh start to 2012.
