Sept 22 - Seasonal Transitions  I took this image by a local lake.  They have bright colored adrirondack chairs and I saw a fallen leaf on one of the chair's arm.  The bright color of the chair reminds me of summer's colors and the leaf has already turned to its fall color.
Sept.22.  Spent the morning crabbing yesterday and came back to a dock full of ducks and birds.
Hole in the cliff  Lower Antelope Canyon #13, Page, Arizona.    As I said in another post from Antelope Canyon, I was trying for a different POV and palette from the thousands of other images taken in this iconic slot canyon.  Other images of Lower Antelope canyon, including one with a bit of an optical illusion, can be seen here: http://goo.gl/9bzXVq  22/09/14 www.allenfotowild.com
Monday, September 22, 2014  "EARTH GODDESS"  "In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful." ~ Abram L. Urban  SOOC, uncropped, flash didn't fire  Now, this is my kind of photo op - interesting, unusual, uncommon, unconventional, and unique (ever so typical of myself:)! "Earth Goddess" (30 feet wide by 25 feet tall) is part of the "Imaginary Worlds - A New Kingdom of Plant Giants" exhibit at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. She is positioned in such a way that when visitors turn a certain corner, surprisingly, she overwhelmingly awaits and amazes.  "The wonder and magic of Imaginary Worlds returns bigger and better with more sculptures and new imagination. Through October, explore a Garden enchanted by 28 fantastic living sculptures. Frogs, Gorillas and Orangutans join returning favorites like the Unicorn, Ogre, Cobras, Rabbits, and Butterflies. The sculptures have been re-imagined with new plant designs and are located in different areas throughout the Garden. Earth Goddess, the largest sculpture at 25-feet-tall, dones dramatic new tresses flowing above the Cascades Garden. This exhibition will be the largest ever presented in the U.S. and promises to be another ‘wildly’ successful one,” says Mary Pat Matheson, the Garden’s president and CEO."  ~ Reprinted text from ABG's official website: http://www.atlantabotanicalgarden.org/events-classes/events/imaginary-worlds  Have a marvelous Monday and a great start to the work week!

9/22/14 - Part of the Chihuly exhibit at the Denver Botanic Garden; worth viewing in the largest size to see the incredible intricacy of the glass sculptures.  I think the Denver Botanic Gardens is one of the premier gardens in the U.S. and the gardens were stunning with the Chihuly glass scattered throughout.  This photo was taken in the Japanese Garden.  Thanks for your warm response to my BLUE shot of one of the Chihuly glass sculptures in the gardens.  The garden is open at night with the glass lit and we plan to go back to see that.
Wild beauties  Sept 22 Not sure what type of flower this is, but I'm seeing these little yellow wildflowers everywhere now! The flowers are very small, about the size of a quarter and were on a vine, weaving in and out of other nearby shrubs.

September 22, 2014  This was one of the highest points (9,869 feet above sea level)  that we got on our vacation through Utah and Arizona (You'll see another from 11,000+ feet in a few days).  You see Bill (my husband) standing on the edge of a scenic pullout called Winkler Point.  According to a historical plaque at this site:  "Named in honor of Ernest Winkler, born November 28, 1877 at Mount Pleasant, Utah.  He began his career in the U.S. Forest Service July 14, 1905.  He served as the Fillmore-now Fishlake National Forest from March 2, 1913 to May 1, 1916.  He was Chief of the Division of Range and Wildlife Management in the Intermountain Region of the Forest Service from July 1, 1923 until the time of his death December 31, 1936.  As friend administrator and conservationist, he left his mark in the hearts of those who knew him and in the national forest areas he supervised.  From this point can be observed the mountains, vellyes and deserts he loved."  And indeed we could see why he loved this area - it is gorgeous.   I can't imagine spending a life in such a beautiful place.  "Transformation is a process, and as life happens there are tons of ups and downs. It's a journey of discovery - there are moments on mountaintops and moments in deep valleys of despair." ~ Rick Warren  Have a mountain-high day today my friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com

21.09.14 - Armistice Day 1918  Yesterday was our last "proper shoot" for Tell Them of Us, only a couple of small pick-up shots to get once we have some autumn colour in the trees. It was a big day of bitter sweet emotions, and a huge cast of extras as we turned Thimbleby back to the day the villagers heard that war was over. The church bells rang for the first time in over four years, which brought people out onto the streets to celebrate. Everything seemed to go well, even the weather was kind and it only rained when we had a break for lunch! Now director/producer Nick has the tough task of editing down all the footage to about 90 minutes of coherent narrative. I can now finish off the behind the scenes photo book and get the last images for the Centenary Stitches book sorted out. Oh and there is also the small matter of putting together the exhibition to run alongside the film at The Collection Museum in Lincoln during November, and all the associated publicity campaign, so we haven't quite finished yet :)  P.S. If you have time please check out my Daily from yesterday, only one person saw it for some reason and it was a very different one for me :)
