Yates Mill Pond - December 26, 2010
050211  Tree in Shohola Falls    Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.

I captured this photo in the open ocean, just after he exited the San Francisco Bay.  Needless to say, these were challenging shots to obtain - as my sailboat was going up and down and sideways, my subject was doing the same - and we definitely weren't in sync!    Even open-ocean sailors reported the sailing conditions to be very severe that day.  Articles of the race reported "Conditions were severe under the bridge, and got worse out in the ocean.  It was so rough that Second Verse, a Cascade 36, was hit by a wave and knocked down until the spreaders were under water."  Dave was competing against 14 boats of all types, broke his boom during the trip, and finished the race in 17 days and 3 hours.  Not only did he place second in the race, he received the Single Handed Sailing Society's Belt Buckle, and the Foxxfyre Trophy for creative ingenuity under sail, because after breaking the boom in the race, he repaired it and kept on sailing!  Incredible!

5-18: Sorry for no comments today - Melanie (my wife) had me doing chores almost all day long :(  I'll try to catch up soon.   We were driving by a farm near Lions Park natural area north of Fort Collins and this section of fence caught my eye. I think those little glowing round things are dandelion seed puff things.

January 7, 2012  This shot was taken just after sundown somewhere along the Mississippi coast of the Gulf of Mexico.  We had stopped to walk on the beautiful white-sand beaches and take some photos.  Just as we left, we stopped at a nearby marina to put gas in the car and I couldn't resist taking this photo.  Frame added in Picnik.  I hope you enjoy this tranquil setting captured in this photo - it's going to be one of my favorites from our recent vacation.  Check it out in X3 for all the color, reflections and details.  Thanks for your comments!!!  Have a fabulous weekend!!!  Linda

April 27, 2009  Early Morning Fog...
9.2.09 - Snow and Rain  We woke up to fresh snow again this morning, and although it was cold it was quite a pleasant day. That is, until I decided to go out and get a Daily. I had hoped to take some night snow shots around the Cathedral, but it was raining heavily! The last time I took some photos here I got a ghostly biker zooming through the shot, tonight it was a bedraggled walker. Apart from a crop to get rid of boring foreground this is straight out of camera. Despite me standing over it with an umbrella some rain managed to get on the lens, but I think it adds to the watery scene (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).  For those that like to keep an eye on our Monday Challenges mine is here;  http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/gallery/7093288_hSxt4#470456288_tRiRP
12-21: This is another from the foggy morning at the Collindale golf course. The fog was freezing on some of the trees branches and needles
4-09: One more fox pup picture. I cropped this one in a little tighter. This little guy obviously noticed me too.
I was sorting through all of my Colorado pictures and found this one of the fox that I seen up on Pike's Peak. The wind was blowing its hair.
11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann
