Aug.22.  This bee is feeding from my butterfly feeder.  The bee isn't so clear but I like the drop that he has at the tip of his mouth.
August 22, 2014 Detail from the high (main) altar of St Fidelis Basilica 'Cathedral of the Plains"  Victoria, KS  "The high altar is adorned with a large pedestal on either side, on which stand the statues of St. Peter and St. Paul.  Each pedestal bears a throne which extends above the statue capped with a cupola matching the design of the altar.  In the center of the altar is a large oil painting which depicts the martyrdom of St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen, which occurred in 1622.  He was murdered by the Calvinists who opposed his teachings of the Catholic faith.  This painting was painted in Innsbruck, Austria.  It was installed with the altar in the old church in 1892 at a cost of $109.  In the arch above the altar is a gold mosaic painting which adds additional beauty and may be well called a halo signifying the sacredness of the altar."   "The high altar and the two large pedestals were manufactured by the Schroeder Brothers in Cincinnati, Ohio.  The altar and pedestals were installed in 1892 in the old church and upon completion of the new church were transferred into the new church.   The cost of the high altar amounted to $900 plus $109 freight." http://stfidelischurch.com/History/StFidelisChurch/ThePresentChurch/tabid/4438/Default.aspx  Thank you for kind comments yesterday!  The Cathedral has a seating capacity of 1100,  the population of Victoria, Kansas is 1208.    Have a happy Friday! Jeanne

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...    *
10.2.08 - Fire in the Sky. Blame Lady Kate for this one! Another beautiful day here in the UK, and lots of photo opportunities. I thought long and hard about using this one, especially as it is from the same place as yesterday's DP, but couldn't resist it in the end. I took loads of shots to try and capture this view. It was really difficult getting any sort of balance between the foreground and the incredible sky. I ended up quite a long way away, almost laying on my stomach at 200mm. People couldn't work out what I was trying to photograph, until I invited them to "lay down here with me"! I got a few funny looks, but eventually the assembled throng realised what I was doing!

12-03: I took this Monday evening at next to a pond near the Environmental Learning Center. We've been having some awesome sunsets here lately. I think this one looks kind of like a painted sky! Unfortunately, it's a little soft because this was handheld and the VR switch on my lens was switched to off. That VR really does work!
11-29: Friday morning we woke up to fog in Fort Collins, so I decided to go up to Horsetooth again. I took this shot of the fog spilling over the hilll towards the water. I think this picture looks better when viewed larger.
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
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
