January 30, 2015  Sunrise on Snaring River  Snaring River Jasper National Park, Alberta  J in J 2015 - This was the amazing sunrise on our first morning in Jasper. It is a great location to shoot sunrise. With the mild temperatures and lack of snow it was easy to get down to the river and there were great reflections on the ice.  * For the month of January I will, once again, be posting images from my annual trips to Jasper in January.
If ever there was a throw away post from me to the DailyPhotos community, this is it.  My day has been consumed with putting out (figuratively) computer and internet fires, setting up a new PC that runs on Windows 8 (worst operating system ever devised), ya-da, ya-da, ya-da.  Tomorrow has to be better.  Right?  If you feel inclined to comment, it can be little more than a "Hi!" and I'll be happy.

Each of the so-called Royal Parks near Buckingham Palace (Hyde Park, Green Park, and St. James Park) has a unique history and character.  One of the charms of St. James Park is the glimpses it affords of some of the surrounding attractions, mingled with views of the lake and the abundant resident waterfowl.  This is a view to the east, across the lake, toward the famous, or infamous, London Eye Ferris wheel, with its viewing pods.  In between, out of sight, is the Thames, which flows S-N along this stretch..  St. James Park is the oldest of the Royal Parks, dating to the start of the reign of King James I, in 1603.  The London Eye was opened for visitors in 2000.  As of this year, 2015, it is to be known officially as the Coca-Cola London Eye.  Egads!  DP029-2015  Posted Thursday, January 29; processed ditto Look closely and you'll see two swans on the lake, and beyond the screen of trees, some pedestrians, probably on Horse Guard Rd.  They add a little size perspective.  I wish I had captured the full reflection of the 'Eye', but it was too late to go back and redo it by the time I realized my mistake.

12.08.10 - Old Father Time  This is a shot from the medieval re-enactment last weekend that I've been working on tonight. I'd intended using another shooting star shot, but despite clear skies, and seeing at least 20 meteors in as many minutes, none of the shots were as good as last night's.

November 13, 2014  Thank you all for your comments on one of  my Grand Canyon (North Rim) shots posted yesterday, you all blew me away. !!!! I'm very appreciative.  Thank you all!.  Here's another shot of the canyon from a different vantage point.  It's amazing to me that just moving a few miles can so change the vista in front of you.  The Grand Canyon's north rim provides such a wide variety of photo ops, and with the rain, the colors were ever changing the morning we were there.

"M" above the eyes   This is Eve my son's cat. I wasn't thinking about the letter when I took this picture tonight but the M jumped out at me when I was going through the pictures. As I understand it this is a common pattern in Tabby's and related breeds.
09/08/09 - Stare Down  This is another picture from our trip to Noah's Landing on Sunday.  This is a red-tailed hawk.  Although it appears that he is staring at me pretty intensely, he was actually just hanging out on his perch checking things out and enjoying the pretty day.  If you missed me saying, the owl from yesterday and this hawk today are rescues...unable to be out in the wild due to injuries of some sort.    One of the things that I've learned is not to throw apple cores or banana peels out of the car (not that we did this anyway).  The things that owls and hawks feed on are attracted to the food, and that has the possibility of taking these beautiful birds unsafely close to traffic.   I was about 3-4' away from each of the birds as I photographed them.  There was a rope keeping everyone a safe distance from their perches.  I have more close-ups than body shots because of all the background clutter and trying to keep the shots somewhat looking natural.    We went to the Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh yesterday.  There's a write-up about that at:  http://maryanng.blogspot.com It was fun and I did take some nice pics...just nothing topping me wanting to share this picture with you.  Plus, it was cloudy and rainy all day yesterday in central NC.  There's a traditional Joey and Johnny in front of the T-Rex skull shot:-)  At least it's a short work week...  Have a great day!
