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!

Day 332- Fogbound - Dec 3.  An eerie sight this morning to look outside and see absolutely nothing.  Felt like I was living in a cloud.  Thanks for the comments on yesterdays post of the Macy's holiday window.  Still sorting and processing the shots from that visit to the city and will post the link once they are on SM for those who want to see more of the window figures and displays.
Normally this a dry lake bed in the desert. Not so dry this year. With a nother storm brewing I couldn't rezist capturing the clouds reflections where they are seldom seen.            I'd also like to thank everyone for all of thier inspiring and encourageing comments. Alot of people ask about the pp. Here it is (HDR) normally +3,normal,-3 stops.
Day 337- NYC Giant Christmas Balls - Dec 8.   One of my favorite subjects at holiday time to get a photograph of. These giant red ball ornaments are displayed every year and are one of the most popular displays in the city.

Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle
I was on the mainland two weeks ago and visited an old town and found a street with these  houses from the 17th century
May 22...   For the last 3 days we had a visit of 5 family members. We were very busy entertaining them so I had little time to post pictures. One of them was my youngest granddaughter, a real darling, so I shall share this picture with you
