050211  Tree in Shohola Falls    Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.
I was sorting through all of my Colorado pictures and found this one of the fox that I seen up on Pike's Peak. The wind was blowing its hair.
Cucumber beetle on a straw flower; best viewed in the largest size.  Thanks for the commentary on my shot of the liquor bottle on the grave.  It is nice to know so many of you felt as I did about the gesture.  Hope your week got off to a good start.  It is quite a bit colder here today but no snow so far.  Have a good day!
2-02: This is another from Saturday's sunset. Several people have asked if the colors are real (natural) in yesterday's. It was taken as three bracketed exposures but only at -1, 0 and 1. Then combined in Photomatix. Then final processing in Capture NX2 (mostly brightness and focus adjustments) I didn't change any colors. I did actually have to desaturate a little because the orange and reds tend to be over saturated sometimes. I used the same processing on today's post. This one was actually taken a few minutes before the one I posted yesterday, so the clouds are more orange than red or pink
1.2.08 - I finally decided to start a daily photo gallery late in the evening of Feb 1st '08, which kind of restricted what photos I could take for that day. No chance to walk outside and take a photo of the local nature reserve, or a nice sunset over Lincoln Cathedral. I'm very comfortable taking landscapes, but haven't taken any indoor photos in natural light for a long time. Anyway, these scented candles seemed an obvious choice in the end. I experimented a bit with different set-ups and lines of focus, and after much deliberation I decided that I liked this shot the most. Ah well, now I've started I'm commited to a photo a day, let's see how long I can keep it up and where it will take me.
Atlantic way -    The bridge on the atlantic ocean  in Norway.
4.8.08 - Ripples    I had intended to do another SP today, I thought it was about time, otherwise I'd start getting bullied again (you know who you are MB!). But it has been a very hectic day, I'll try to summarise it without boring anyone :)    I had barely finished my breakfast when I got a phone call, total change of plans for today. Apart from a few minutes over a late lunch, when I actually managed to get home, I've been on the move all day. I finally got back at 9pm, with a stack of emails to answer and more phone messages. Most of these mean more changes of plan for tomorrow, and more work, but one was good news, really good news. I have won my first photographic competition, hooray, and this is the image that won. I took it nearly a year ago, as one of a series, and it has remained one of my favourites. I would do certain things differently if I got the chance, but throwing a pebble into a lake to generate your own ripples is a neat trick, if you get your aim and the timing right :)    Unfortunately I have a pile of paperwork to do before the morning, so I can't promise that I'll be able to catch up with the Dailies, but I'll try later. But for now I'm going to have a beer, if I can drink it with this big daft grin on my face :))
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...    *
2-Oct-12  Steaming Around the Curve. The colour version of this image has done quite well at my club comps. I'd be interested to know what people think of the b&w version.  Incidentally the locos in shot are 6024 "King Edward I" and 71000 "Britannia" seen departing from Watchet on the West Somerset Railway

"How Much is that Doggy in the Window? "   This little guy waits at the window every morning for his master to get home from work and you can`t get a bark or a smile out of him while he waits with this sad , little face. I pass by his house most mornings and he hides behind the curtain , but he was braver today.   I`m very tired so this will be my post for the 29th.This was the best I could do with glass between him and the camera..I wanted to pet his sadness away.    This was taken last year 2011 and  , I 've just met the dog owner this am June 19,2012. . Told her that I have this doggy shot for her and she seemed delighted to give me her address so I can drop it off. Thank you to the smug mugger who helped me to sharpen  the colors!
Bayview Sunrise, Bayview TX    I think it's a good thing that I'm not going to be living this close to the bay when we move TX, otherwise I'd probably spend all my time on the docks.  I really love seascape photography when I get a chance to do it.  I really like how the long exposure effect smoothes out the water and of course the sunrise reflection.    This is a two exposure HDR and the exposure times are 8 and 15 seconds.  I use Photomatix Pro, version 4.1.3, but thanks to Art's question yesterday have now updated to 4.2.3.  In Photomatix I use tonemapping.  See my post yesterday for more info an links to Trey's HDR tutorial.  Yesterday I also provided links to a new lighting show with Joel Grimes on Framed Network called Lit up, check out  episode seven.  Lastly, Creative Live is broadcasting live and FREE all weekend.  The workshop is titled "Sales Sales Sales," taught by photo business guru Tamara Lackey.  I have seen Tamara's previous workshops on Creative Live and she really knows business.  Creative Live broadcasts replays all night long so you have two chances (or three if you stay up really late) to catch it.      Daily photo: July 21, 2012, taken July 5, 2012
 887 9.14.11 HAVE YOU BRUSHED, FLOSSED, PICKED AND RINSED TODAY?    A brief public service announcement photograph to promote YOUR oral health! Have you used YOUR tools for a healthier mouth today?  Did you know that untreated gum disease is a risk factor for heart disease, stroke, Diabetes, pre-term low birthweight babies, arthritis and even Alzheimer's Disease?? Be sure you see your Dentist and HYGIENIST regularly for an Oral health exam including oral cancer screening, periodontal disease screening and dental cleaning..It could save your life!   This preachy moment was brought to you because my last patient  did not show yesterday ( yup, just didn't call or anything!) and I was totally caught up for the day while waiting for him and decided that this might make a colorful dental still life photo to share with you..!  Another shot taken with my little Canon Elph...that camera rocks!
This image shows a the water in a water balloon just after it has been punctured by a pin.  Best viewed in the larger sizes.  This was captured at 1/1000th second shutter speed.  My grandson and I had an entire day of photography.  We started early in the morning photographing red-wing blackbirds, swallows, and ducks at a little retention pond near his home.  Then we shot more birds in his back yard.  Then, we came to my house and punctured balloons, water balloons and played with giant bubbles.  We had a ball!  Spencer is a budding bird photographer and I hope to feature a few of his shots in the next few days.  We are having new carpeting installed in part of our upstairs today.  Lots of fun moving furniture and books to make way for the carpet layers.  Hope you have a fun day, too!  Thanks for all the nice comments on my most recent shot of the peony tulip.

Tree in Shohola Falls

Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.
