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

W for Winter and low sun over the North Sea.  Kresten Refslund
I waited for 6 months for the sun to go down in the midle of the road. Fortunately it did not rain that day. I brought a boy with me to wave good night to the sun.  Suddenly I saw the birds comming from the left, and got them in "the decive moment".
January 7, 2012  This shot was taken just after sundown somewhere along the Mississippi coast of the Gulf of Mexico.  We had stopped to walk on the beautiful white-sand beaches and take some photos.  Just as we left, we stopped at a nearby marina to put gas in the car and I couldn't resist taking this photo.  Frame added in Picnik.  I hope you enjoy this tranquil setting captured in this photo - it's going to be one of my favorites from our recent vacation.  Check it out in X3 for all the color, reflections and details.  Thanks for your comments!!!  Have a fabulous weekend!!!  Linda
Yesterday I woke up at sunrise. The sun was barely over the horizon at southeast. As I looked out of my bedroom window I saw this landscape to the northwest with the full moon as a golden coin. I at once grabbed my camera, opened the window even as the temperature was minus 10° centigrade and made some shots. Here is one of them. 10 minutes later the sun was well over the horizon, the sky was lit and the moon hardly to be seen.

A Sandhill Crane strutting along.
Mustard Hill is located in a lovely field outside Ashton, Idaho.  What a beautiful sight!
This road runs east of Sierra Nevada and 5 km south of Mono Lake.  Kresten Refslund
Burst of Light
March 11...  Beach #9.   This is the last Beach-picture for now. I still need to include some summer-pictures in the series,  so I have to wait 3 month to finish this job . If you look at the horizon line you will see a number of windmills.  We have a lot of offshore windmill parks around our country and they produce 20 % of our total power consumption and this percentage is increasing from year to year
Rocks in the Stream easily seen in the clear run-off from this tributary to the Virgin River in Zion national park.
Mustard Flowers blooming yellow and purely lovely.
Douglas Squirrel - very loud alarm call got my attention. Taken near Olympia, Wa.  Update: Thank you for nice comments. I'm not sure if this is a young squirrel but every Douglas squirrel i've seen is small and cute. They are much smaller than the gray squirrels and cuter as far as i'm concerned though gray squirrels may take exception to that. Ive taken pictures of this one since, or at least another one in the same area.By the way they sound similar to a bird and they are more vocal than other squirrels or chipmunks ive been around.

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...
