1-23: Quite a dramatic view of the out house near River Bend ponds. I never posted the color version but I like the B&W better. It looks like it's out in the middle of nowhere but actually it's pretty close to the parking lot - I have to walk passed it to get back to my car. This was taken shortly after sundown a couple of weeks ago.
1-16: Thursday morning we woke up to thick fog again. It lasted till about noon. I was able to go out on my lunch break and take some shots along the river right after the fog lifted. The fog had frozen to the tree branches and bushes. I was able to get some shots before it all melted.
Golden Fields & Blue Mountains October 2008   Taken in Montana, Madison River Valley, just after a storm.
2-05: Another from Monday evening. I was actually hurrying to get to another location and kinda liked the look here so I snapped off a few shots. I think it sorta looks like fall colors on the trees
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.
Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle
May 22...   For the last 3 days we had a visit of 5 family members. We were very busy entertaining them so I had little time to post pictures. One of them was my youngest granddaughter, a real darling, so I shall share this picture with you
September 16, 2011 - featured today on Scenic USA   http://www.scenicusa.net/091611.html  May 8, 2011 - "Sapelo Island Lighthouse"  Sapelo Island can only be reached by boat.  The island has a very interesting historical background.  5/4/2011 -  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapelo_Island_Light  "Sapelo Island Lighthouse is a lighthouse in Georgia, United States, near the southern tip of Sapelo Island, Georgia. It is the nation's second-oldest brick lighthouse and the oldest survivor of Winslow Lewis lighthouse projects.  Sapelo Island Lighthouse was built in 1820. It was designed and built by Winslow Lewis. It had a fifteen Lewis lamps with 16 in (41 cm) reflectors. In the 1850s, the tower was raised by 10 ft (3.0 m) and a fourth-order Fresnel lens was installed in 1854. During the Civil War, the lens was removed. It was extensively repaired after a 1867 storm and relit in 1868. The tower was damaged by a hurricane in 1898. The lighthouse was replaced in 1905 by the a pyramidal 100 ft (30 m) skeletal tower with a third-oder Fresnel lens. This tower was dismantled and relocated in 1934 to South Fox Island, Michigan. Sapelo Island Lighthouse was inactive from 1905 to 1998, and is now privately maintained and unofficial. The original lighthouse was renovated to its 1890 appearance in 1998 when it was relit."

August 23, 2011  hi everyone!  Thanks for all of the great comments.  We are loving the weather and low daily highs of around 80 degrees in New Mexico.  The vacation is going great.  Many times we are in areas with no cell coverage - which is ok, except that I also don't have the use of my iPad to comment with.  So forgive me for the sparse comments.   This is a shot of the floor of the Texas State capital building in Austin, Texas.  It was taken a couple of months ago but I really liked how it was a little off kilter.  Check it out in X2 - I think you'll enjoy the details.
An early October snowstorm in Colorado Springs; best viewed in the larger sizes.  I think it is always challenging to try to capture the actual snow falling so that it looks natural.  In the largest sizes, you can really see the snow falling, so I was pleased with this.  I sure appreciated your comments on my shot of the snow at the hospital parking lot.  This community is always so encouraging.  Hope you had a good weekend!
