Moonflower (Ipomoea alba). Convolvulaceae (Morning Glory Family). Gainesville, Florida. 2014.
In local gardens, and along roadsides, rudbeckia and echinacea are on their last legs.  Goldenrod and asters are coming into their own, and phlox is thriving.  It is definitely a time of transitions.  One tree that is in the peak of its blooming season is the Chinese Scholar Tree (Styphnolobium japonicum), aka Japanese Pagoda Tree.  I hope to get some photos while the blooms are in good condition.

AUG 27 2014 It's a beautiful morning
I waited for 6 months for the sun to go down in the midle of the road. Fortunately it did not rain that day. I brought a boy with me to wave good night to the sun.  Suddenly I saw the birds comming from the left, and got them in "the decive moment".

Nana, a very cute puppy - Jan 24 2009  Today my Caroline had to do her license test agility with Blue (which they passed easily), time to see our agility friend again and some new puppies. This little gal stole my heart instantly, good job she's already taken ;-) So I have to settle with some pictures of her.

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
1/15/09  CRABAPPLES IN THE SNOWSTORM  With temperatures plummeting    and more snow on the way, I added a little color   to brighten this cold, cold, winter day...  Hope you're staying warm...and feeding the birds AND squirrels... :-)
Day 132 - The morning sun strikes rock formations in the Grand Canyon, as seen from the North Rim in Arizona; detail in this image is best viewed in a larger size.  This shot of the Grand Canyon is one I recently rediscovered in my archives from the early fall and reprocessed.  I used a number of different effects, including Topaz Adjust, Color EFEX Pro, and some regular Photoshop filter and blending effects.  If you view the large size, you will really see some detail!  I'm going to post this and go to bed.  I hope you all have a really nice day!  It is supposed to be quite warm here today.  It got up to 65 degrees in Colorado Springs today, not a good day to sleep away.  Oh. well.  Oh, if some of you should like to look at the other North Rim Grand Canyon shots, they are here:  http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/gallery/6698528_KNq6d#476011624_efKkk.
4.8.08 - Ripples    I had intended to do another SP today, I thought it was about time, otherwise I'd start getting bullied again (you know who you are MB!). But it has been a very hectic day, I'll try to summarise it without boring anyone :)    I had barely finished my breakfast when I got a phone call, total change of plans for today. Apart from a few minutes over a late lunch, when I actually managed to get home, I've been on the move all day. I finally got back at 9pm, with a stack of emails to answer and more phone messages. Most of these mean more changes of plan for tomorrow, and more work, but one was good news, really good news. I have won my first photographic competition, hooray, and this is the image that won. I took it nearly a year ago, as one of a series, and it has remained one of my favourites. I would do certain things differently if I got the chance, but throwing a pebble into a lake to generate your own ripples is a neat trick, if you get your aim and the timing right :)    Unfortunately I have a pile of paperwork to do before the morning, so I can't promise that I'll be able to catch up with the Dailies, but I'll try later. But for now I'm going to have a beer, if I can drink it with this big daft grin on my face :))
Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY
