It's still hot, and I didn't shoot anything today, so this is another shot from the archives.  And in an ultimate showing of laziness, I'm pulling it straight from one of my first galleries uploaded to Smugmug.  One more day until I'll have lots of new festival and river photos to choose from.

I think this might be a self portrait as this is was how I looked most of the time.    I'll catch up shortly and give updates.
22.3.08 - Happy Easter! We actually had some snow showers today, but none of it settled so no snowy DP today. I had to go into town, and on the way back decided to dodge a particularly nasty snow shower by going into the cathedral. I timed it just right for a guided roof tour, and ended up staying for nearly two hours. This isn't my most innovative or quirky shot of the cathedral, but it does show its gothic majesty off best. I can never get my head round the fact that this was all built by hand; no scaffolding, no cranes, no laser range finders, just blood and sweat. I took over 80 photos today(!), so some of them will make it to other galleries when I get chance. I'll probably start a separate gallery for Cathedral interiors, and there were some stunning views from the roof! Happy Easter..........    I've put one of today's efforts here  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4518270_XDZuH#268878026    New Cathedral Gallery now here  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4562724_EH5v6/1/268904689_tgGam#268904689
"The Road to Color"  10/16/08  While Driving today I got stuck behind a SLOW POKE on the only single lane road leading out of town and was getting frustrated so I jumped off onto this small fire road and was shocked by the colors in this tunnel like ride. it was raining pretty good all day today so there was no sun and nasty puddles everywhere but I was able to snap this by opening my sun roof and sticking the D300 out on constant focus and shot it while doing about 10 mph. I was amazed by the composition I was able to get since I was in the center of the road and being above the car it gave me some extra height then the usual eye view, I think it worked out pretty well LOL.    In post I did a minor contrast adjustment and small crop off the bottom, that's it! I'm enjoying the colors here now but I see them disappearing very rapidly so I'm going to try and get some shots everyday now until their gone. It's supposed to get very cold here starting tonight in the 50's as a high during the day and low 40's to high 30's at night Brrrrrrrrrr. I got some other shots from today to process yet but I will be putting them in my Fall Colors 2008 gallery when there finished.    Hope you all enjoy your day,  Bill Pador
11-05: I was driving around south Fort Collins in an area I don't think I've ever been and I actually got kind of lost for a while. The street ended at this pond so I stopped and took a picture. Yesterday was cloudy with dark clouds that looked like rain clouds - very unusual for this time of year in Fort Collins.
12-21: This is another from the foggy morning at the Collindale golf course. The fog was freezing on some of the trees branches and needles
12-26: Another from the golf course on Wednesday morning. There was a heavy frost on the trees which, in this shot, was helping to pick up a glow from the sun.
12-15: Sunday we woke up to more snow and bitter cold. When I took this picture in the afternoon it was only about 4 degrees F! The sun was causing some fog to form over Horsetooth
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!
30.11.08 - Peace and Contemplation    This image was left over from a couple of days ago when I did the misty collage. I always felt that I could do something else with this, and in the end this is just a sepia photo filter, but it conveys the feelings I wanted to get across, so I'm really happy with it. At the time I sloppily let the back of my car intrude into the photo, so that was cloned out. But otherwise it is just a B&W conversion, an adjustment of contrast and the sepia filter. I love these misty days with the sun trying to break through, and the stark silhouettes of the trees, mind you, it was bloody cold :)    There is an alternative treatment here which emphasises the cold a bit more;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4328734_9ZqLR#427338235_SzU46      For those of you that asked about my curry night, it was a lot of fun. I love cooking, especially Indian food, and this was a chance to show off a bit with friends. They brought liquid refreshment, I did the food, and we all got totally stuffed! I'm now eating the leftovers, which are even tastier than last night :)
1-04: This is another from Thursday, actually taken a few minutes before yesterday's post. This shot was taken looking towards the other end of Horsetooth. As you can see, it's a very long and fairly narrow reservoir. It's amazing how fast the sky was changing - a lot of this color was gone in just a matter of seconds. It's also unusual how calm the water is. Normally you won't see a reflection this good on Horsetooth because of the wind.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!!    POTD February 14, 2011 - Best viewed in X2    This classic Ford truck is really red, but I was experimenting with PP - just playing around really.  But I kind of liked this effect.  I particularly liked the reflections of the Mustang in the side, the grass in the wheels and the understated color of this beauty.    Best viewed in x large to see the fine detail.    Here's the 'original' shot straight out of the camera:   http://lgood.smugmug.com/gallery/12442807_L6QVo/#1187288707_Bu2oA    Thanks for all you kind comments this week.  Have a good one!!!!    Best regards.,  Linda
