December 21, 2013  Winter's Eve  When the trees glisten like crystals at night, and catch the new fallen snow, An enchanted kingdom begins to take form beneath the moon's silvery glow. The forest surrenders to winter, yet life goes on and on, And just as each day fades to twilight, each dusk is followed by dawn.  Happy Winter Solstice!  12 Days of Christmas Challenge  Alberta Legislature Grounds Edmonton, Alberta

12.24.14  Foto #2 for today. I wasn't going to post this one, because i like the one of my dad better.  Yesterday, in the morning when I came out to my computer, I noticed that the elf was hanging on the sliding glass door. I'm not sure if he was trying to rescue the Flower Fairie, or what? The other elf, Jim, had been using the Nerf gun.   No one is willing to claim using my Fairy for target practice.  Got to run.
I'm SO excited that I finally got a shot of a butterfly this summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went out two days in a row for quite awhile in this heat! It is so HOT again , but it paid off today! This is taken in Gage Park where they have a garden set up with Monarch favorites!! WOOHOOO    I got lots of nice flower shots too but,,later,,,    oh and this is an early Aug.23/12 post   yay to Summer!!

September 19, 2012    "Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it alright will rather preserve its life than destroy it." ~ Henry David Thoreau     As we took our first drive out of Jackson, Wyoming toward Teton Village, we discovered a little side road that looked interesting.  So, of course - we decided to take it to see where it led.  Just a few yards down the road, we encountered a small stream in a heavily wooded area and saw this bull moose wading in the waters and taking his long, slow drinks of the clear and cool water.  He was totally unconcerned that we were there.  It was a thrill to be this close (although not that close) and be able to enjoy this lovely creature going about his business.    Check this out in the larger sizes - it's very interesting.  This is an SOOC photo - the only addition is the frame.    Have a Bullwinkle-kind of innocent and Happy Day today my friends!!    Linda
September 29, 2012    OK - so this is a Yellowstone cliché - but how could one not photograph Old Faithful while visiting Yellowstone?  Obviously I couldn't resist.  I took hundreds of photos before, during and after the full eruption of this famous geyser.  The day we were there to observe, the sky was dark and threatening rain, the wind was high and may have somewhat limited the height of the water at it's apex, and it certainly spread the water wider than I think it would on a windless day.  It's a must see when in Yellowstone, and I must admit that I had a child-like joy while watching the eruption.  It was great!    According to Wikipedia:  "Old Faithful is a cone geyser located in Wyoming, in Yellowstone National Park in the United States. Old Faithful was named in 1870 during the Washburn-Langford-Doane Expedition and was the first geyser in the park to receive a name. It is also called the most predictable geographical feature on Earth erupting almost every 91 minutes."    Also, according to Wikipedia:  On the afternoon of September 18, 1870, the members of the Washburn-Langford-Doane Expedition traveled down the Firehole River from the Kepler Cascades and entered the Upper Geyser Basin. The first geyser they saw was Old Faithful. In his 1871 Scribner's account of the expedition, Nathaniel P. Langford wrote:    “ Judge, then, what must have been our astonishment, as we entered the basin at mid-afternoon of our second day's travel, to see in the clear sunlight, at no great distance, an immense volume of clear, sparkling water projected into the air to the height of one hundred and twenty-five feet. "Geysers! geysers!" exclaimed one of our company, and, spurring our jaded horses, we soon gathered around this wonderful phenomenon. It was indeed a perfect geyser. The aperture through which the jet was projected was an irregular oval, three feet by seven in diameter. The margin of sinter was curiously piled up, and the exterior crust was filled with little hollows full of water, in which were small globules of sediment, some having gathered around bits of wood and other nuclei. This geyser is elevated thirty feet above the level of the surrounding plain, and the crater rises five or six feet above the mound. It spouted at regular intervals nine times during our stay, the columns of boiling water being thrown from ninety to one hundred and twenty-five feet at each discharge, which lasted from fifteen to twenty minutes. We gave it the name of "Old Faithful."     As mentioned, I took a lot of photos of Old Faithful.  I created a collage of some of them, which you can see by clicking here:    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Travel/Vacations/18186464_wfxNtK#!i=2091164446&k=9WbNf6M    Have an awesome day today my friends!

September 27, 2012   "If you can't be in awe of Mother Nature, there's something wrong with you."  ~ Alex Trebek   Best viewed in larger sizes.  One of the many hot pools within Yellowstone National Park.  Most of them were so deep and clear that you felt you could see miles below their surface.  Miles - isn't the correct measure of course; however, it conveys the feeling of depth as I stood beside them & gazed into their pools, watched the hot water bubble the surface, and felt the steam roil into the air.    And too - the minerals and bacteria that gathers around the edges of these pools and gives them their amazing colors which were fascinating to me.  I burned up a lot of pixels taking photos of these oddities of nature.  Here is a close up (SOOC) of the bacteria & other ? that live around the edges of these hot springs pools.  There was another link included in day before yesterday's POTD of some of the growth around the pools, but I particularly like this one because it's so different.  http://lgood.smugmug.com/Travel/Vacations/18186464_wfxNtK#!i=2090712231&k=s6Lg32T  Thanks so much for your comments & critiques (always welcome) on my shots.  More Yellowstone shots to come and perhaps some cars mixed in too in the coming days.  Have a colorful and playful day today my friends!  Linda
