Hummingbird - I am a bit ambivalent about this shot because the hummer's iridescence is just SOOO high voltage, but I decided that maybe it was worth featuring as a daily.  This is best viewed in the largest sizes.  Quite a lot of you are wondering about the shutter speed.  It is 1/1600 sec.  I've found I can usually freeze hummers at about 1/1200 sec. or faster.  I bumped the speed up on this day because it was exceptionally bright and sunny!  Thanks to all of you who commented on my shot of the white cactus flower.  Much of the snow melted today, although it kept on snowing until about 11 a.m.  The wedding shoot went well, I think, although I've not yet looked closely at the images.  They'll keep me busy processing for several weeks.  Hope every has a chance to get outside and enjoy nicer weather today!
I waited for 6 months for the sun to go down in the midle of the road. Fortunately it did not rain that day. I brought a boy with me to wave good night to the sun.  Suddenly I saw the birds comming from the left, and got them in "the decive moment".
19.12.10 - Merry Christmas to One and All  I usually wait until nearer the time before sending out my Smug Christmas cards, but the chaotic way things have been the last few days I thought I'd better "post early" in case events get in the way later.  I actually joined Smugmug 3 years ago this Christmas Day, and the friendships that have followed have been one of the big positives of that time. In a world that sometimes looks like it wants to polarise itself to death, watching the planet turn on the Smugmug Dailies is a timely reminder that whoever we are, there are far more things that we have in common than divide us.

Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY

"How Much is that Doggy in the Window? "   This little guy waits at the window every morning for his master to get home from work and you can`t get a bark or a smile out of him while he waits with this sad , little face. I pass by his house most mornings and he hides behind the curtain , but he was braver today.   I`m very tired so this will be my post for the 29th.This was the best I could do with glass between him and the camera..I wanted to pet his sadness away.    This was taken last year 2011 and  , I 've just met the dog owner this am June 19,2012. . Told her that I have this doggy shot for her and she seemed delighted to give me her address so I can drop it off. Thank you to the smug mugger who helped me to sharpen  the colors!
This image shows a the water in a water balloon just after it has been punctured by a pin.  Best viewed in the larger sizes.  This was captured at 1/1000th second shutter speed.  My grandson and I had an entire day of photography.  We started early in the morning photographing red-wing blackbirds, swallows, and ducks at a little retention pond near his home.  Then we shot more birds in his back yard.  Then, we came to my house and punctured balloons, water balloons and played with giant bubbles.  We had a ball!  Spencer is a budding bird photographer and I hope to feature a few of his shots in the next few days.  We are having new carpeting installed in part of our upstairs today.  Lots of fun moving furniture and books to make way for the carpet layers.  Hope you have a fun day, too!  Thanks for all the nice comments on my most recent shot of the peony tulip.
Single color . If you look at the horizon line you will see a number of windmills.  We have a lot of offshore windmill parks around our country and they produce 40 % of our total power consumption and this percentage is increasing from year to year
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
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.
