07/06/15:  Stealth shot from my yard to theirs.  Although, I'm sure they wouldn't have minded.  Trying out my new 400mm lens without benefit of a tripod.  Not easy.
Visited my cousin in Airdrie last week and shot her lovely cone flowers.
'Blowing Bubbles'...03/30/2011...    Getting a tiny bit closer to where I would like to be...had about 30-40 minutes yesterday to roam about the yard...found this and a few other things...
Day 37 - Love    Thank you for all the great comments. I was quite nervous taking this set of flower photos for a wedding catalog because the flowers were to be used for a wedding the next morning. The client was rushing me in worries that the flowers being out of the refrigerator too long and its losing freshness. It was my first job shooting flowers commercially and that was quite an experience, to say the least.
The Journey begins...    Please accept my apologies if I do not get to your shot right aways.    Please let me explain.    Taking care of my mom is virtually like taking care of a toddler. She can only take a few steps and she has to have diapers. I giver her meds to her, I get her up and in the wheelchair to take her to the dinning room to eat. She can feed herself so that's good. Basically when she needs something I have to get it. So if I don't comment right away I haven't forgotten you I'm just in the middle of something.    Have a GRATEFUL day.      and smile...    *
Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs has fantastic views, throw in a thunder storm and things get real interesting. Sharp eyed viewers will spot a climber on one of the formations.
Buteo...  These soaring hawks have long, broad wings and wide, fanned tails. Buteos are built to glide effortlessly on air currents. They can soar for long stretches without flapping their wings. Their soaring ability lets them hunt for prey while circling over open areas. They will perch on trees and utility poles and wait for unsuspecting prey to move below. Buteos include the Broad-winged Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk and Rough-legged Hawk. http://www.hawkmountain.org/raptorpedia/how-to-identify-hawks/page.aspx?id=353  Sycamore Canyon Trail Whittier, CA  Thanks for your views, comments and critiques, always appreciated!  The Lord will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.Psalm 138:8 NLT  www.biblegateway.com  July 5, 2015

28.04.10 - Kaleidoscope   When I walk into town I try to plan my route around photo opportunities, indeed I do the same if I drive in too. But this afternoon I was on foot, and on the way home I took a detour through the Arboretum to see what was new. As it happened there were plenty of new flowers in bloom, which gave me the opportunity to grovel around on my stomach to see what outrageous bokeh I could manage to get!   Apologies for any burned out retinas that might be caused by this riot of colour.

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
Early morning hay field.
11/23/10 - Tree in the Fog  I have been watching and studying this tree for a couple of years now.  Whenever there is fog, it seems to stand out from the backdrop...a solitary, lonely figure.  I finally made up  my mind yesterday to figure out where to park the car to get out to take a picture...not a small feat.  I do try to stay safe, but this location is more precarious than some.  Most days I am joyful as I spend time with the kids.  My life is full of laughter and color; it's vibrant and full of life like many of my pictures.  But some days at least deep inside it is like this too.  I guess a bit of that side is slipping through today.  I stopped to think about my mother for a few minutes when I took this.  She was involved in a horrible traffic accident with a tractor trailer on a foggy morning in November just before Thanksgiving in 1985.  For me, the fog will always be more than just the fog.  Back to bright and cheery tomorrow I promise...  Thanks for your comments on Johnny and the Jon boat.  It was as serene out there as you thought.  Little wind, warm sun on our skin, very few boats out on the lake...a calming hour without the chaos of life.  HAGD, Maryann
