Hosta Posted July 23, 2014  Another from the Devonian Gardens near Edmonton.
There's more to the story of this shot than first meets the eye.   What you see is a pair of kayaks seemingly passing through a laid back group of young mallards. I was standing on a bridge that overlooks the river, and watched both the mallard family and the kayaking pair.  The mallards started out well separated from the kayaks but seemed to choose a deliberate path that converged with the boats.  Once there, the mallards sort of milled around and kept the kayakers company.  By that time the boaters had suspended paddling and were just drifting, enjoying the little 'meet and greet' with the ducks.  DP205-2014  Posted (late) July 24; processed ditto In case you're wondering, no the boaters weren't tossing out food for the ducks.  Nor were any of the dozens of other boaters out on the river at that time.  In fact, I've never seen boaters at this park feeding birds from their boats.  There must be some other explanation for the birds' behavior.  Taken July 15, 2014 on the Huron River at Gallup Park Title:  Curiosity Runs Both Ways
Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs has fantastic views, throw in a thunder storm and things get real interesting. Sharp eyed viewers will spot a climber on one of the formations.

Tree at sunset
31DEC2011  Sunset bridge...  Found this in a park next to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, take time to stop here this was one of the most scenic sunset's i have witnessed for a long time, Blue heron's, cranes, geese, a whole plethora of waterfowl show up here. Three miles north is the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge home of cape's wild horse population. The area is also known for great seashell gathering and Kill Devil Hills is just twenty miles south. This would be a place to bring your paddle craft i saw many photo op's just off the shoreline that would have been awesome provided the temperature was acceptable.  Thanks for all the great comments, wishing all a Happy New Year. #1 Dec. 31st 2011 Thanks go out to Paul Jr. who forces me to get better....Linda who shows me the direction even if it is the internationally known i'm # one sign....Linda's great without her these pictures don't get to you.... the also great DAILY community, thanks for looking hope to see you out on the trail and in the backcountry this year.....let me know how i can help you get there!

8.14.13: The Chugach Mountains ring Anchorage to the east and south and this is the view from my office at sunset. I must admit not a bad view any day of the week.
A rare treat for the railroad photographer, three steam engines on one freight train seen leaving Chama, NM on a beautiful morning.
23.07.14 - Backlit Harebells  This is from my guided photo walk on Lincoln South Common yesterday evening. I love backlight, especially in the soft evening light. There are lots of tiny purple harebells out at the moment, and they were shimmering amongst the grasses in the light breeze.
Another eastbound rolls through the desert town of Indio, CA. If one looks closely you can see the headlight of a following train.
