September 7, 2013  This is a shot from underneath the Mesa Arch - shot after having been there well before sunrise, but the cloud cover didn't give us the glowing red of the iconic shots you've seen.    Me, and 5 other photographers from all over the world waited for the sun to rise. One man was there from Sweden - he was certainly the one that traveled the furthest of the group gathered there that morning.  After realizing that we weren't going to get the iconic shot we started to pack up and leave,  But me and some of the others started taking different shots from and around the Mesa Arch.  For this shot, I was "sitting" on the rocks at the bottom of the arch.  I hope you can see the formation in the distance that is called The Old Washerwoman (check this photo out in Xlarge).    From this vantage point, it's pretty easy to imagine that the structure in the distance does in fact look like a woman washing laundry on a rock.

Mongolian throat singer in traditional dress, Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia    Mongolian throat singing (hoomii or hooliin) is an ancient tradition that allows the singer to create anywhere from two to four notes at the exact same time.  It is fascinating and unique to listen to: an example of male throat singing can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wHbIWH_NGc or go here for a female throat singer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=qNFSB4PnVPI    Interestingly, the male throat singer in the link was filmed in Ulaan Baatar at the same theatre where I took my photos.    The last few pics featuring Mongolian performers in traditional dress, singing traditional songs, and playing traditional instruments (none of which I'd ever heard of before), can be seen here: http://goo.gl/hCJpFX    23/12/14 www.allenfotowild.com
12-20-2014 "Keeping Watch"  My sister started me a collection of Mark Roberts Faries the first Christmas after Sutton was born. She also started Sutton a collection.  I get the large one and Sutton gets the smaller one.  There are only a couple that we do not have that are exactly alike.  We hang Sutton's on my tree.  Mine are displayed on the entrance table to my home.  These are two of the ten I have.  Each year Sutton and I can't wait to see what the new ones will be.    Please meet "Chocolate Truffle Fairy" and "Fairy of Presents."   You will probably see more of them between now and Christmas.  Today is Emme's first birthday and the party is at my house.  I'll post photos!!!  The theme is "Emme in Onederland!"  Your comments and critiques are always welcome and appreciated. Donna
12-21-2014 "Emme is One"  We had a wonderful birthday celebration for our sweet Emme.  As you can see in the background she got lots of presents and in 4 days it's Christmas.  If I have any say in the matter, LOL, she will always have a BIG birthday.  My birthday is 3 days after Christmas and I know what it's like to have it and Christmas all in one week.    Thank you so very much for the comments on my faries.   Donna

This tree, decorated predominantly with felt appliqué ornaments, was one of my favorites.  I thought I'd give you a chance to guess what country is represented.  See the full resolution versions of these and other shots of this tree, and learn the country's identity, starting here:  http://smu.gs/1AKBXFM  DP352-2014  Posted Thursday, December 18; created ditto from photos taken December 11  Christmas display at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, Grand Rapids, Michigan  Title:  Guess the Country of Origin for These Ornaments

October 1, 2013  October already?  I had a hard time captioning this photo.  I considered:  "On top of the world" "Mountain's Majesty" "Textures in Blue" "Above the Tree Line" "America the Beautiful"  How would you caption this shot?  This shot is high on the top of a peak in Colorado on one og the many trails that we rode on our Jeep/4 wheel trips.  I think we were at about 13,000 feet here.

October 17, 2013  As I've said before, I love Aspen trees.  I would have loved to have been in Colorado at the time of their leaves turning that brilliant, golden yellow color.  Nevertheless, I enjoyed them in their late summer stage too.  I loved that this stand was so thick & I could see deep into their world and find their unique markings far from the front set of trees.  This thick stand of Aspens brought to mind many of Bev Doolittle's prints.  I am a big fan of Bev Doolittle.  This shot reminded me most of her "Sacred Ground" print.  Also, the triptych "Two More Indian Horses" (which hangs in my living room).  I would highly recommend that you google her Sacred Ground Print, and I think you'll see why this shot put me in mind of that piece of art.  Have a strong and steady day!  Linda

This is a shot from underneath the Mesa Arch - shot after having been there well before sunrise, but the cloud cover didn't give us the glowing red of the iconic shots you've seen.

Me, and 5 other photographers from all over the world waited for the sun to rise. One man was there from Sweden - he was certainly the one that traveled the furthest of the group gathered there that morning. After realizing that we weren't going to get the iconic shot we started to pack up and leave, But me and some of the others started taking different shots from and around the Mesa Arch. For this shot, I was "sitting" on the rocks at the bottom of the arch.

I hope you can see the formation in the distance that is called The Old Washerwoman (check this photo out in Xlarge).

From this vantage point, it's pretty easy to imagine that the structure in the distance does in fact look like a woman washing laundry on a rock.

Constructive critiques are welcome

Have a great day!
