Saturday, December 20, 2014  "FINAL DAY OF AUTUMN/FALL" 2014  "In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, save perhaps in daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November." ~ Rose G. Kingsley  SOOC, uncropped  Christmas countdown...........5 days away! My youngest sister and her family arrived safely last night - woo hoo!  The first day of winter is tomorrow, so I thought I'd post a final photo depicting the beauty of autumn/fall - my favorite time of year.  And yes, the leaves were really that vivid.  I always say that Mother Nature is amazing and she sure knows how to put on a show!  I am appreciative of your comments yesterday pertaining to  my "Down By The Riverfront" photo. There are always phenomenal photos posted in this community from so many talented and meticulously discerning photographers; and as you can tell, I enjoy viewing and commenting on as many of them as time permits.   Have a safe weekend!

12/20/14 - Ice; I love photographing ice but rarely get an opportunity to capture it, so I was quite excited to see some in a water feature outside a local store.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the desserts.  I thought it was funny so many of you mentioned that you were gaining 5 pounds just looking at it.  Have a great day!

Got this beauty at one of the lakes in Colorado!
19.12.14 - Dusk  The dog (white blob bottom left) and I missed the sunset last night, but the sky was still quite nice down by the river. This is a 2 shot photomerge panorama comprising the whole sky, south (left) to west (right). Over the river you can also see that the fields are flooded, this always happens at this time of year, the land is so low lying here. Only a couple more nights and the sun will start it's journey back north across the sky and the days will get longer again :)
October 6, 2014  This Rooster was definitely strutting his stuff, and King of the Yard.  when we saw him at Pipe Springs National Monument in the Arizona strip.  Isn't he a handome fellow?  What is the Arizona Strip?  According to Wikipedia:  "The Strip is very typical of the American West in its red-rock canyon country, and the aridity of the climate, which leads to the predominance of sagebrush vegetation. The land is also dotted with juniper trees, moving into pinyon pine and juniper forests, and eventually ponderosa pines, spruce, firs, and aspen in the higher elevations such as the Kaibab Plateau.  The Arizona Strip is the part of the U.S. state of Arizona lying north of the Colorado River. The difficulty of crossing the Grand Canyon causes this region to have more physical and cultural connections with southern Utah and Nevada than with the rest of Arizona."  We found ourselves on the Arizona Strip at Pipe Spring National Monument, then a few miles and a dirt road we were back in Utah.    Have a "cock a doodle day" today my friends!

December 20, 2014  Since I showed you three of the grandchildren tubing on the lake in the photo yesterday, I thought I'd show you a fun shot of their youngest sister Eleanor.  She's all tuckered out from the fun and excitement and has decided to take a little nap at athe back of the 'big boat'.  Eleanor is 3-years old.  I kind of feel a little like Eleanor.  After two straight weeks on the road on business trips, getting home late yesterday afternoon (after a 3+ hour delay of the flight from Birmingham) from the most recent trip and then hosting Bill's company Christmas party (100 people) at our house last night, I think Eleanor has the right idea.  Maybe a nap is in order for me sometime later today.  :-)  But not a long nap - I have to go to the grocery store and get food for the first of our family Christmas parties (with my sister - 17 people,) and get all the kids presents wrapped before 1:00 Sunday afternoon.  The next family Christmas is 5:00 on December 27th - we'll have 22-25 people here.  I'm looking forward to the week off between Christmas and New Years.  I'm not complaining - I love the family time!  Have a great day my friends!  Thank you for your comments and critiques.  Linda, http://lgood.smugmug.com
