Good Year Blimp...  The term Goodyear Blimp has traditionally referred to any one of a fleet of airships operated by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, used mainly for advertising and capturing aerial views of live sporting events on television. The term blimp itself is defined as a non-rigid airship – without any internal structure, the pressure of lifting gas contained within the airship envelope maintains the vessel's shape. Since the launch of the Pilgrim in 1925, Goodyear has generally owned and operated airships of this type in its global public relations fleet. However, Goodyear is currently in the process of replacing its three U.S. non-rigid airships (blimps) with three new semi-rigid airships, each of which will have a rigid internal frame. Although technically incorrect, Goodyear plans to use "blimp" in reference to these new semi-rigid models. Wingfoot One, the first such model in Goodyear's U.S. fleet, was christened on August 23, 2014, near the company's world headquarters in Akron, Ohio. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goodyear_Blimp  Thanks much for your views and comments!  22 October 2014

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
October 23, 2014 Our local nature preserve hosted an event this weekend, Nature Fest.  One of the presenters was a Birds of Prey  rescue and rehabilitation group.  The handler said this eagle was probably about 4 years old and still considered a juvenile.   They are such fascinating and majestic birds.  The weekend is getting closer Jeanne
10-23-2014 "Cotton Pickin' Time"  Actually a lot has already been picked.  We saw this field and it looked like  nothing had been done to prepare  it to be picked.  They spray some kind of poison on it so the leaves and plants actually die before they pick it.  That way the  pickers get only the cotton.  If this field had been sprayed it was recently because it still had a lot of leaves.  It's amazing that so many things we take for granted are made from this plant.    I appreciate your comments on my photos and enjoyed the ones on the camel yesterday.  Yes it is a long way from home.  We were also told to be careful because it would spit on us.  It never did, thankfully. Donna

Yates Mill Pond - December 26, 2010
Nana, a very cute puppy - Jan 24 2009  Today my Caroline had to do her license test agility with Blue (which they passed easily), time to see our agility friend again and some new puppies. This little gal stole my heart instantly, good job she's already taken ;-) So I have to settle with some pictures of her.
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.

4/14  picture from a wedding I did a few months ago.  getting ready to start my stretch of weddings starting in a month, yikes!
"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~

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
