May 13, 2015  Thank you all for your overwhelming comments on my potd yesterday.  I am honored by your support, critiques and comments.  I'm very appreciative.  I bought an app for my iPad that makes fractals and I fully admit that I'm not very good at it yet, but it's fun to play with - it's a great distraction when I'm sitting in the airport waiting for  a plane..    This fractal  that I created with the app kind of reminded me of a surreal version of different flavors of ice cream swirling around in an old fashioned homemade ice cream freezer.  I liked the colors, and I added the frame in Ribbet.  It's rather abstract but was fun to play with.  And, it is not in any way close to the magnificent fractals created by the master of fractals:  Morgan Fractals.  "There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality." ~ Pablo Picasso  Thank you for your comments and critiques.  Have an absolutely great day!  Linda http://www.smugmug.com
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
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
Single color . If you look at the horizon line you will see a number of windmills.  We have a lot of offshore windmill parks around our country and they produce 30 % of our total power consumption and this percentage is increasing from year to year
08OCT2012  Milling Around  Dell's Mill aka Clark's Mill with some Fall foliage all lit up in the morning sun......Great place, scenic area with lots of barns to shoot as well.  Image won First Place in the "Travel Category" n4c.us in October 2012, submitted through the Omaha Camera Club.  Comments are welcome, lots of Wisconsin images to upload....have a great day!  Dan, sorry we didn't know you lived there....great area.
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
