Seagull - taken near Olympia, Wa.  I really appreciate the comments!
Mother sandhill crane with her lone chick following her.  It was approximately 1 foot tall. Another case of being surprised by the encounter and not having my camera ready in time.  In fact, I barely had it out of the bag before these two were off the trail and on their way to being hidden by tall grass and brush.  These were literally the only shots I got.  Sadly, none of the two together.

Just returned from a trip to the north shore of Minnesota.  This one is from Agate Bay at Two Harbors just outside the still-active iron ore docks.
05.21.15  The LDS Salt Lake Temple.  This was taken on Feb. 12. I hadn't processed it until last night. I used the poster edges filter in processing and played with hue and saturation. I'd like to paint the Angel Moroni gold.  Thanks for you comments yesterday, they were appreciated. An image with a closer crop of Clancy cann be found here: http://indigostudios.smugmug.com/Daily-Photos/Summer-2013/  Edted at 9am:  This morning, currently, the person in first place has only 8 comments while the person in the 2nd slot has 15. i will reluctantly give her photo/graphic credit for being well done. That is a huge discrepancy. I do not know how this happens. That person once replied that it was a smugmug problem of some kind. If that was so, WHY is she the only one to have this happen to on a daily basis? I don't know how it happens, but I am tired of it. I know this group is not about who has the best photo, it has a lot to do with popularity. If I was up at 1am my time and posted on a regular basis (I'd rather sleep though) my images would get more comments. Anyone's would. I do this because it make me get out there and take pictures and interact with people when I'd rather do nothing...... I do this for me. It shouldn't bother me who is in 1st or fourth or 11th place. Normally it doesn't, but it DOES when the person is obviously cheating.   I'd recommend that everyone stop commenting on her photos. However, I doubt that would change things. She has figured out a way to manipulate the dailies. Even if her opening comment was her only comment, she'd still end up with her photo being significantly out of place.   OK. I'm ready for GUEST to start trashing me now. Go ahead.

Sunset - long exposure with 10 stop ND filter. Taken near Olympia, Wa.  I really appreciate the comments!
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
11/23/10 - Tree in the Fog  I have been watching and studying this tree for a couple of years now.  Whenever there is fog, it seems to stand out from the backdrop...a solitary, lonely figure.  I finally made up  my mind yesterday to figure out where to park the car to get out to take a picture...not a small feat.  I do try to stay safe, but this location is more precarious than some.  Most days I am joyful as I spend time with the kids.  My life is full of laughter and color; it's vibrant and full of life like many of my pictures.  But some days at least deep inside it is like this too.  I guess a bit of that side is slipping through today.  I stopped to think about my mother for a few minutes when I took this.  She was involved in a horrible traffic accident with a tractor trailer on a foggy morning in November just before Thanksgiving in 1985.  For me, the fog will always be more than just the fog.  Back to bright and cheery tomorrow I promise...  Thanks for your comments on Johnny and the Jon boat.  It was as serene out there as you thought.  Little wind, warm sun on our skin, very few boats out on the lake...a calming hour without the chaos of life.  HAGD, Maryann

3rd year Pic 081 - Oct 14 2010  Fix it!     At a shop selling all types of tools this set of screwdrivers stood out.    Chor Bazaar, located near Bhendi Bazaar in South Mumbai, is one of the largest flea markets in India. The word Chor means "thief" in Hindi-Urdu. The reason it is known as "thief's market", is because it assumed that goods sold there are stolen. There's a saying about this area, if you lose anything in Mumbai you can buy it back from the "chor bazaar"! Most of proper shops are closed on Friday as this area is in the heartland of one of the largest Muslim populations in Mumbai.    Chor Bazar is a maze of streets with shops that look like musty attics and sell just about anything at bargain prices from old ship parts, grandfather clocks, gramophones, to crystal chandeliers and old English tea sets antiques at throwaway prices, including colonial-era lamps, Art Deco clocks and trinkets of every kind. It's not an easy job to shop here as one has to rummage through a lot of stuff, including junk and then set about bargaining.      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chor_Bazar
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.
Delicate Swan - Sep 23 2010  She (he?) was all alone...  Did some (LOL) PP on this shot to make a kinda delicate picture.
