Sanderling - we enjoyed watching this guy/gal spin around and walk backwards looking for food in the water. Seemed oblivious to us.Taken on Maui.  I really appreciate the comments!
March 6, 2015  This is a photo of a small Lake near Glen Rose, Texas.  We stumbled across it while we were on one of our roaming, no-destination road trips.  I really liked the reflections of the tree stumps on the lake & the hazy sky.  Thank you for your comments and critiques!  Have a great day friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
On this day, I awoke to find a tranformed world.  All of the snow, which had fallen as a light powder, was now coated with a glazed crust of ice, perfect for fairies to skate on and humans to slip on.  The ice formed somehow as part of a thawing and refreezing cycle.  That occurrence is common in winters around here.  You expect some kind of crust to form on the snow.  But this one was exceptional for its smoothness and extreme reflectivity.  Miracle of miracles, we had a sunny day to reveal this coating in all of its loveliness.  A walk in Gallup Park, along the river, over the foot bridges, and back, was sheer fantasy.  DP065-2015  Posted Friday, March 6; processed March 5 from photo taken ditto. If you have ever tried to photograph any highly reflective sparkling surface, you will understand that no photograph can do such a sight justice.  Certainly my skill and equipment were not equal to the task - at least not to the extent I would have wished.  For what it's worth, I'll be adding additional shots of this fun phenomenon either to my 2015 winter gallery (http://arctangent.smugmug.com/SeasonsoftheYear-3/1st-Winter/2015-A-Winter-Early-Arrival/45799205_8fgTfr) or my Ice and Snow gallery (http://arctangent.smugmug.com/SeasonsoftheYear-3/1st-Winter/Snow-and-Ice-details/6892531_52KFj8) over the coming days.  There are a few there already.  Title:  One more marvel before winter departs  I'm so happy that so many of you took the time to comment on yesterday's icicle shot.  Thursday was another good day for photographing icicles, but the crazy glazed snow trumped icicles as the subject for my DP post for today (Friday)

3/6/15 - New version of the old Coca-Cola bottles!  Even though it is a different color, it still evokes the same nostalgic feelings.  Thanks for the comments on my shot of the bottles and glasses at the bar!
06/03/15 It was a beautiful, sunny day today. Melting , but slippery, and warmed by the rays ; I got out for a few shots. This is from Sunday in our back yard.
Waiting, always waiting This grey heron always perches on the highest limb of the rookery.   Seen in Vienna's 21st district.
Day 064: Tree in Snowstorm - Mar 5. Snow all day.  Had hoped to get to one of the parks to get some snow scene photos but only the main roads were cleared and I expect that the parks were closed anyway. This is just a simple image of tree branches during the storm taken near where I live.
Fractal # 3 ... sure wish I could think of a name - any ideas?  Hope you're not getting tired of them, I have a few more yet....  Thanks so much for your interest & all your comments on these little creations, so glad you like 'em! 03.05.15  edit: Thanks Arctangent.... Scylla & Charybdis it is!!

October 19, 2012    This photo reminds me of the old saying, "Let sleeping dogs lie."  Indeed that seemed appropriate as I spied & got up close to this sleeping buffalo near the buildings at Morman Row, Wyoming.    Thanks so much for your comments yesterday of my "up close" shot of the buffalos in the Aspens.    Life is crazy, work and taking care of Bill is taking a lot of my time, so I've been very remiss on commenting.  I'll try to catch up over the weekend if I can.  Just know that I enjoy hearing from you.    Have a fantastic day my friends!    Linda
