November 9... Fishermens cabins
June 30...    A 250 year old house of a sea captain. The two dogs in the window have a special meaning: When they were looking out of the window the husband were at sea, when looking into the house he was at home and her special friends should stay away.
July 26, 2014  A couple of month ago I was sitting in the house processing photos and I became aware of the winds howling outside.  I grabbed my camera and walked out the back door to see what was going on.  These amazing clouds were just over the house.  Shortly afterwards we got some much needed rain.  Have a storm-free day today my friends.  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
Everyone seems to be posting pictures of purple coneflowers (Echinacea purpurea), so I decided to add my take on this popular, photogenic flower.  Heaven knows, I've taken lots of photos of it, not just this year, but every chance I get.  DP202-2014  Posted July 21; processed July 20. I know I could have cloned out the orange top of the flower in the lower right, but in the end, I decided I kind of liked it there.  It reminds me that I was photographing a large patch of this particular species, and not just a few isolated stalks.  You can see part of the patch here (http://smu.gs/1yPwDRz) and a blossom plus bee close-up here ( http://smu.gs/1yPwVYC )  Traffic flow island, Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ann Arbor Taken July 18, 2014 Title:  Getting in on the Act  Yesterday's logo challenge was fun, but I mistakenly thought my own entry would be easy to guess.  Next week I might err on the side of the super obvious.
Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle
July 25 2014 Forty four years ago today  We're back home now celebrating our 44th anniversary.
2013-07-01. Ring Around the Cone Flower.    Thank you for the views and comments. They are very much appreciated!
The name of this zinnia variety is 'Uproar Rose'.  Quite appropriate for its riotous fuchsia color, I'd say  DP192-2014  Posted July 11; processed ditto  A more conventional shot which shows an entire bloom of this zinnia is here:   http://smu.gs/1tuoUsU A note about processing on this shot.  I tried desaturating the reds and blues in an attempt to bring out more petal detail.  It justed made the shot look washed out without raising any significant detail, so I left it as it was, at the original saturation level.  Note added:  See here (http://smu.gs/1ql8IbY)  for a further discussion on restoring petal detail  Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ann Arbor July 2, 2014 Title:  Raising a Ruckus  Thanks so much to all who expressed their enjoyment of yesterday's delphinium shot.
2013-07-18. Big, Black Snake, about  a five footer. My hubby found him sunning himself on the deck. I used to hate these guys until I started loving photography.    Added Note: After its photo opp, we just left him alone and he gradually moved on. It's been spotted a few times here and there around the house.    Thank you for your views and comments yesterday!
A Daisy for the Dailies
October 1, 2012    "On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow."  ~ Friedrich Nietzsche     This barn is one of a very few remaining buildings left at Morman Row near the town of Moose, Wyoming.  I'm sure this is one of the most photographed barns in the United States, the setting is just amazing and the condition of the barn is strong, although deserted and not in use.  While we were in the valley known as Jackson Hole, Wyoming we saw such wonderful places and beautiful country.  As mentioned before, the haze that hung in the air from the nearby grass fires made it very difficult to get clear photographs of the Teton Mountains.  It was disappointing, because they are so magnificent.  However, I was very pleased that at least in this shot, they are clear against the blue sky on the day this shot was taken.    According to Wikipedia:  Mormon Row is a line of homestead complexes along the Jackson-Moran Road near the southeast corner of Grand Teton National Park, in the valley called Jackson Hole. The rural historic landscape's period of significance includes the construction of the Andy Chambers, T.A. Moulton and John Moulton farms from 1908 to the 1950s. Six building clusters and a separate ruin illustrate Mormon settlement in the area and comprise such features as drainage systems, barns, fields and corrals.  The area is also known as Antelope Flats, situated between the towns of Moose and Kelly. It is a popular destination for tourists and photographers on account of the historic buildings, the herds of bison, and the spectacular Teton Range rising in the background. The alluvial soil to the east of Blacktail Butte was more suitable than most locations in Jackson Hole for farming, somewhat hampered by a lack of readily available water. The Mormon homesteaders began to arrive in the 1890s from Idaho, creating a community called "Grovont," with a total of 27 homesteads. The Mormon settlers tended to create clustered communities, in contrast to the isolated homesteads more typical of Jackson Hole.    Please take a moment to view this in the larger sizes, it's one of my favorite shots from the trip.  And thanks to everyone for your kind comments on this series.  There's still more photos to go through and process.  It could take months.  :-))  But I'll be posting more in the coming weeks.    Check this view out - it's really cool too:  http://lgood.smugmug.com/Travel/Vacations/18186464_wfxNtK#!i=2120891933&k=LZkhwzr    I'm back out on another trip to Birmingham, Alabama this week, then Orlando the following week. My ability to comment will be somewhat limited, but I'll do my best to keep up.    Have a wonderful day today my friends!
September 5, 2013  View at one of the vantage points in the Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands National Park.  Goodness, doesn't nature provide the most amazing and beautiful sights for us to drink in?  This was taken the first morning that we went to the Mesa Arch for sunrise.  I got so many great shots, it's hard to decide which ones to post.    If you look in the upper, center portion of the shot, you can see a river flowing.  I'm not sure if it's the Colorado or the Green River.  Have a Massively good day today my friends!  Linda
