Portrait of an eagle hunter and his eagle #3, Western Mongolia  Check out his magnificent red fox fur coat.  Fox and rabbits are the main prey hunted by the trained eagles, and both species are used for food to supplement their meagre diets in the winter, and for their fur as protection against the bitter weather.  The fox fur hat with red silk and feathers (owl I think) at the crown is always part of their traditional attire when they are out with their eagles.  A series of portraits of the eagle hunters can be seen here: http://goo.gl/AdmHpE  17/04/15 www.allenfotowild.com
4/17/15 - Snowstorm on the Interstate; we've had spring for well over a week but today it is snowing again.  I actually took this photo a couple of weeks ago but thought it was appropriate for today.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the blue bottles!
04-17-2015 "Which One Next?"  These balls were in the dugout just wanting to be used. I was shooting on shutter priority for the ball game and just turned and took a shot of these balls.  The results was one in focus and one not.  Your comments on my photos are always welcome and very much appreciated. Donna
Some of the most interesting views from the south rim of the Grand Canyon, in my opinion, are from the Desert View viewpoint.  Here you can see not only the canyon itself, including a stretch of the Colorado River just south of its confluence with the Little Colorado River, but a vast sweep of the plateau through which the two canyons travel, clear to distant cliffs in the north.  That plateau is dotted with various landforms, including remnants of ancient volcanos.  It helps put the Grand Canyon into context.  DP107-2015  Posted Friday, April 17. I leveled this shot on the distant cliffs.  You can see that the strata of some of the features in the middle distance are distinctly tilted relative to those far cliffs and the intervening plateau.  More pictures of Desert View's iconic Watchtower, and of views from the site over the canyon and plateau are here (new gallery, still being added to):  http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Travel/Arizona-and-Utah/Grand-Canyon-Desert-View/48426178_4BdrMD  Taken March 29, 2008.
