Yesterday my wife and I  was on a shoot in Sonderho. There we met Camilla standing by her truck,  selling fresh fish just brought in from the North Sea. Fortunately for her (and me) she was dressed for the cold winds coming in from the sea. When my wife had bought her fish I asked if I could have some picture of her and the truck. This is one of them. She only asked if she could get a copy, and of course I agreed to that. Only pp was cropping and correcting white balance due to low January-sun..
January 4.   Finally a ship came through the ice and everybody are happy, and we can get our supplies again, Our small island, Fanoe, is 14 km long and 4 km wide. Almost the size of Manhattan, but with only 3200 inhabitants. Thanks for the many positive comments of yesterdays picture, the empty quay, it is warming on a cold winter day..
August 29, 2015  While we were on our rainforest hike, our guide found a fallen Eagle feather on one of the walk ways.  She picked it up, and talked about it a little bit.  Each of us in the group got to hold and examine it which was very cool!  But as we finished, we had to leave it behind where it had fallen.  It is illegal (except for an Native American) to possess an Eagle feather, or any part of an Eagle for that matter.  "Eagles are directly protected under two Federal laws: the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. These laws generally prohibit the possession, use, and sale of eagle feathers and parts as well as a number of other activities." from www.fws.gov/eaglerepository  Thank you for your comments and critiques!  Have a fantastic day full of wonder and joy.  "It's a great event to get outside and enjoy nature. I find it very exciting no matter how many times I see bald eagles." ~ Karen Armstrong  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
August 28, 2015  There were many fishing boats in the various ports we stopped at during the cruise portion of our Alaska vacation.  I was drawn to this one primarily because of the brightly colored buoys on the fishing nets piled in the rear of the boat.  This was processed with a Topaz filter to give it some texture and a painting-like feel.   "If my ship sails from sight, it doesn't mean my journey ends, it simply means the river bends." ~ Enoch Powell  Thank you for your comments & critiques.  Have a colorful day today!

August 27, 2015  This is one half of a very artsy gate that could be pulled together with it's other half to seal off the entry to a building and it's parking lot in Juneau, Alaska.  I found it very unique.  "An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision." ~ James Whistler  Thank you for your comments and critiques.  Have a lovely day!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
August 26, 2015  While in Skagway, we took a ride on the White Pass and Yukon Railroad from Skagway into the Yukon territory.  The scenery was absolutely lovely and stunning as we climbed through the mountains.  The day we took the ride was very cold and overcast with low hanging clouds that oftentimes hid the peaks of the mountains.  You can see that in this photo.  According to the railway's website:  "Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, this narrow gauge railroad is an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, a designation shared with the Panama Canal, the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty.  The WP&YR railway was considered an impossible task but it was literally blasted through coastal mountains in only 26 months.  The $10 million project was the product of British financing, American engineering and Canadian contracting. Tens of thousands of men and 450 tons of explosives overcame harsh and challenging climate and geography to create “the railway built of gold.”  The WP&YR climbs almost 3000 feet in just 20 miles and features steep grades of up to 3.9%, cliff-hanging turns of 16 degrees, two tunnels and numerous bridges and trestles. The steel cantilever bridge was the tallest of its kind in the world when it was constructed in 1901.  The 110 mile WP&YR Railroad was completed with the driving of the golden spike on July 29, 1900 in Carcross Yukon connecting the deep water port of Skagway Alaska to Whitehorse Yukon and beyond to northwest Canada and interior Alaska."  Thank you for your comments and critiques!  Have a great day!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
8/24/15 - A field of wild coreopsis and a little bit of Indian paintbrush right in Colorado Springs.  We have had an amazing amount of rain this spring and summer and, as a result, places that usually have only a few wildflowers are covered with wildflowers.  I appreciate those who took the time to find my daily post of the old Olympus camera.  With regard to the current situation with smugmug and the dailies, we should hope that smugmug will actually get them working again, but I agree that we should be looking around for another alternative such as flickr.
August 31, 2015  WOW!  Thank you for your comments on my Majestic Moutainscape photo yesterday.  I really appreciated them very much!  As I mentioned on a photo posted a few days/weeks ago, one of the highlights of our time in Vancouver, BC was a visit to the Bloedel Conservatory.  This is but a tiny fraction of the gorgeous flowers we saw while there.  More photos coming in time for this place.  "Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson  Thank you for your comments and critiques.  Take time to savor the day, and stop and smell the roses today my friends.  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
August 30, 2015 The "New Smugmug Title" isn't showing on the Daily Most Popular anymore it seems.  So, the title of this is:  "Majestic Mountainscape"  Somewhere along our journey on the Princess Pacific (btw: the original "Love Boat" from the TV series) we enjoyed this stunning view of the mountains cloaked by the low clouds.  Alaska is one of the pretties places I've ever had the good fortune to experience.  "May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds."  ~ Edward Abbey  Thank you for your comments & critiques.  Have a fantastic day!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com

Singing  in the Rain  Aug 27 I wonder if this flower is silently singing in the rain!
The cube of Zoroaster (5th C BC) and the Tomb of Darius II (423-404 BC) at the Naqsh-e Rostam UNESCO site, Marvdasht, Iran. The structure of the Ka'bah is similar to the tomb of Cyrus I at Pasardagae (530 BC) and is thought to be an Achaemenid tomb. It appears to be built on a similar base isolated structure to the Cyrus I tomb which helps it to resist earthquakes and contributes to its remarkable preservation today. The building, with one inner chamber is decorated with recessed false windows.

Yesterday my wife and I was on a shoot in Sonderho. There we met Camilla standing by her truck, selling fresh fish just brought in from the North Sea. Fortunately for her (and me) she was dressed for the cold winds coming in from the sea. When my wife had bought her fish I asked if I could have some picture of her and the truck. This is one of them. She only asked if she could get a copy, and of course I agreed to that.
