1-16: Thursday morning we woke up to thick fog again. It lasted till about noon. I was able to go out on my lunch break and take some shots along the river right after the fog lifted. The fog had frozen to the tree branches and bushes. I was able to get some shots before it all melted.

11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann

June 11, 2011    This is the same abandoned station where the marching line of gas pumps were found.  You can see that shot posted on June 5th here if you missed it.  I know many of you have seen it because of the wonderful comments which are very appreciated.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Daily-Photos-2010/12484643_ezMcC#1367630283_kkxm8S9    This is another set of gas pumps that are older in style, and were in front of the abandoned station.  As I mentioned before, there were 100s of pumps around this place.  It was so cool.    And here's an old sign that was in front of this old place- http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Signs/7752337_483tx//1061733754_#1376000970_H7MsspG    This was such a cool place and it brought back lots of memories for me from days gone by.  I hope you all enjoy it.    Linda
Reflections  Posted Sept 16, 2014  From our photo walk in downtown Edmonton.
Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY
Yates Mill Pond - December 26, 2010
I took this picture at an exhibition of Eduard Munch's drawings. Was awarded gold medal from our national Photographic Society
"The River Flows"  On my way home from an appt. today I stopped at one of my favorite fishing spots on the Rockaway River in my town to grab this capture. Too bad I didn't have a set of waders in my car to get the little water fall that is located just below this scene but I have to be UNDER the bridge I was on in order to get it in the frame LOL. So you'll have to settle for this one.    I love the little water flow control house that is dilapidated here, it adds a nice rigid feel to the scene. I've watched the roof continue to collapse over the years and soon it will just fall in completely. This is one of the best trout spots around here and they stock the river just upstream weekly during trout season from the farm with tags on them so you know if you caught a wild or farm bread fish. The mountain you see in the background is part of the Picatinny Arsenal where they develop & test new weapons for the military.    Anyway, it was an overcast day here as you can see and it really brought some nice contrast into the picture that I liked. I had to make slight levels adjustments to bring the clouds out a bit more and then some selective dodging & burning to the shadow areas but not much more to this one. Oh and a slight filter applied to bring the colors up a bit since it was so dark here. 10 min. of work and it was finished. So I hope you enjoy this next addition to my fall colors month - I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and get out there to enjoy the crisp clean fall air ;)    ALTERNATE VERSION: You can see a second version in SEPIA of this image in my EXTRAS Gallery BY CLICKING HERE    Best Regards,  ~Bill~
Hello All, This is my first image I’ve posted using My new Olympus E-5 set on the dramatic tone picture mode. This beautiful farm field resides in New Tripoli Pa.  Thanks for looking, please feel free to comment.
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
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.    Constructive critiques are welcome  Have a great day!  Linda
