Wednesday, July 29, 2015  "BALANCING ACT"  "I love straight-forward people - makes life ten times easier." ~ Author Unknown  A "play date/play day" with our youngest grand-prince.....  I love the appearance of the green leaves growing as a vine on the wire, as well as how the red painted poles provide a burst of my favorite color. Photographed in the same general locale as my yesterday's photo.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!

7/29/15 - Groom helping the bride with part of her gown; I just liked the light and the view of the couple with the trees and green around.  Thanks for your warm response to my shot of the sunflowers.  I love those flowers, too!  A lot of terrific shots today, but I am very sad about John Loguk's giving up his photography.  Seems like there is something wrong when a talented and skilled photographer like John cannot make a go or it.
The Tetons, Drive by shooting. :) 7 29 2015
July 29 - My thanks to all for your concern over my health. It is much appreciated. I feel  better each day!
July 29.  Caribbean Lobster, also know as Spiny Lobster.  Spiny lobsters can be easily distinguished from true lobsters by their very long, thick, spiny antennae and by the lack of claws.  There is a debate which taste better, but I'm not a seafood eater, so I don't have an opinion. Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
Painted Reflections  Jul 28 After a short rain shower, everything is beautifully saturated with color. The calm still of the lake reflected all of the beauty.

July 29 2015 Believing  A fresh twist on an old quote from W. C. Fields.  It seems that the Dailies are: 1. Broken - I just posted this and it is 50 of 89.  Only the first 5 are current; after that we're seeing stuff that is years old. 2. Dwindling - just a handful of people posting.  What's up?
Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY
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 40 % of our total power consumption and this percentage is increasing from year to year
Hummingbird - I am a bit ambivalent about this shot because the hummer's iridescence is just SOOO high voltage, but I decided that maybe it was worth featuring as a daily.  This is best viewed in the largest sizes.  Quite a lot of you are wondering about the shutter speed.  It is 1/1600 sec.  I've found I can usually freeze hummers at about 1/1200 sec. or faster.  I bumped the speed up on this day because it was exceptionally bright and sunny!  Thanks to all of you who commented on my shot of the white cactus flower.  Much of the snow melted today, although it kept on snowing until about 11 a.m.  The wedding shoot went well, I think, although I've not yet looked closely at the images.  They'll keep me busy processing for several weeks.  Hope every has a chance to get outside and enjoy nicer weather today!
Yesterday I woke up at sunrise. The sun was barely over the horizon at southeast. As I looked out of my bedroom window I saw this landscape to the northwest with the full moon as a golden coin. I at once grabbed my camera, opened the window even as the temperature was minus 10° centigrade and made some shots. Here is one of them. 10 minutes later the sun was well over the horizon, the sky was lit and the moon hardly to be seen.
