January 8, 2014 Yesterday we woke up to 11 degrees and our pond was frozen over.  TOO cold for East Texas!  The wind blew hard the night before and the patterns in the ice were intriguing.  We always knew Gracie was a special duck but didn't realize how special until we saw her walk on water yesterday *wink*.    Here she is preforming her version of Swan Lake.      Thank you for your comments on the cemetery shot.  Such amazing history in those old historic cemeteries.  Keep warm and stay safe Jeanne
"The River Flows"  On my way home from an appt. today I stopped at one of my favorite fishing spots on the Rockaway River in my town to grab this capture. Too bad I didn't have a set of waders in my car to get the little water fall that is located just below this scene but I have to be UNDER the bridge I was on in order to get it in the frame LOL. So you'll have to settle for this one.    I love the little water flow control house that is dilapidated here, it adds a nice rigid feel to the scene. I've watched the roof continue to collapse over the years and soon it will just fall in completely. This is one of the best trout spots around here and they stock the river just upstream weekly during trout season from the farm with tags on them so you know if you caught a wild or farm bread fish. The mountain you see in the background is part of the Picatinny Arsenal where they develop & test new weapons for the military.    Anyway, it was an overcast day here as you can see and it really brought some nice contrast into the picture that I liked. I had to make slight levels adjustments to bring the clouds out a bit more and then some selective dodging & burning to the shadow areas but not much more to this one. Oh and a slight filter applied to bring the colors up a bit since it was so dark here. 10 min. of work and it was finished. So I hope you enjoy this next addition to my fall colors month - I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and get out there to enjoy the crisp clean fall air ;)    ALTERNATE VERSION: You can see a second version in SEPIA of this image in my EXTRAS Gallery BY CLICKING HERE    Best Regards,  ~Bill~

Field of pumpkins, ready for Halloween (best larger).    I was saving this one for Halloween but tomorrow I'm heading overseas again to give a few talks, and may be too busy to post and comment much, so I'm posting it early.    25/10/14 www.allenfotowild.com
October 2014:   Chesler Park Sunset:  Spires and Grasses The last rays of sunset shown on the Chesler Park spires while the grassy yellow meadow fell into shadow.  The glowing light magically made all the shades and shapes come alive.  This is landscape photography at its' best.  The Needles of Canyonlands National Park is fantastic.
I love swamps!  At one point in history, this was the site of Reed's Mill, though long gone now. Not even the tiniest trace of evidence remains. It was beautiful there.  Reed's Mill Swamp Kingston, Ma
Lost: We took the kids to a massive corn maze in Ipswich, MA. It's 8 acres in size with over 10 miles of pathways. We were lost in the damn thing for over 2 hours!!!! Here's the website: www.marinicornmaze.com Happy hump day!!  10/29/2013
May 2, 2012 -- HEIDI (about 14 weeks) Being a Labrador Retriever puppy, everything goes into the mouth! I thought she looked a little guilty here! Thank you for all your comments. I've been enjoying all your photos and processing. Forgive me for not commenting yesterday. Just a bit overwhelmed with all the work surrounding the therapy dog fund-raising event this Sunday.
OCT 29 2014 Four Winds II in B&W
October 29, 2014 Caddo Lake is a maze of bayous and sloughs, and is the only natural lake in Texas. It is the largest natural lake in the south, encompassing approximately 33,000 acres of lake water  and wetland on the border between Texas and Louisiana.   The eerie beauty of Caddo Lake is almost magical. Some of the Cypress trees are said to be 300 years old.    We had hoped to see more fall color.  Hopefully we will get to return soon, the fall color of the Cypress is amazing.   Thank you for your kind and supportive comments yesterday.  Enjoy your day Jeanne

B&W #4

Ogden City Cemetery

I only found two angels in this cemetery and they were from the same mold and not very pretty. There were a lot of lambs on head-stones, which signifies a child. Yet, very few angels. Perhaps this is tied to the Mormon belief that angels do not have wings? There were also very few crosses. which again could be associated with Mormon doctrine? Mormons do not use crosses in their religious ceremonies. Mormons do not wear crosses.

After the meeting of the two railroads at Promontory Point Ogden became a railroad hub and had not only Mormons living there, but Gentiles, also. Ogden did have a good mix of cultures. I am sure there are many people from other religions and cultures buried in this old cemetery. I think I am going to start counting angels and crosses when I visit Utah cemeteries.

Yesterday I saw the surgeon. Everything is looking good. They took the drain out. And I don't see the surgeon again until February. Next week I meet the radiologist and in 3 to 4 weeks I start radiation.
