September 16, 2011 - featured today on Scenic USA   http://www.scenicusa.net/091611.html  May 8, 2011 - "Sapelo Island Lighthouse"  Sapelo Island can only be reached by boat.  The island has a very interesting historical background.  5/4/2011 -  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapelo_Island_Light  "Sapelo Island Lighthouse is a lighthouse in Georgia, United States, near the southern tip of Sapelo Island, Georgia. It is the nation's second-oldest brick lighthouse and the oldest survivor of Winslow Lewis lighthouse projects.  Sapelo Island Lighthouse was built in 1820. It was designed and built by Winslow Lewis. It had a fifteen Lewis lamps with 16 in (41 cm) reflectors. In the 1850s, the tower was raised by 10 ft (3.0 m) and a fourth-order Fresnel lens was installed in 1854. During the Civil War, the lens was removed. It was extensively repaired after a 1867 storm and relit in 1868. The tower was damaged by a hurricane in 1898. The lighthouse was replaced in 1905 by the a pyramidal 100 ft (30 m) skeletal tower with a third-oder Fresnel lens. This tower was dismantled and relocated in 1934 to South Fox Island, Michigan. Sapelo Island Lighthouse was inactive from 1905 to 1998, and is now privately maintained and unofficial. The original lighthouse was renovated to its 1890 appearance in 1998 when it was relit."

Yates Mill Pond - December 26, 2010
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.
November 28, 2010    Hello to everyone!!!!    First let me say thanks to all the comments on the last few Daily photos I've posted this weekend, particularly the scary spider shot.  I've certainly enjoyed browsing and commenting on the OUTSTANDING photos that you all have posted in the last several days.    This is a shot of some roadside weeds (or maybe some sort of grass) that I shot in the late afternoon.  I liked the way the sun seems to make the fine strands glow.  The shadows were adjusted and I added fill light with Picassa.  Hope you enjoy the effect.    Have a wonderful Sunday evening!    Cheers,  Linda    PS - Papa says this is Green Foxtail.  Thanks Papa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
February 13, 2011- The Waxing Gibbous (nine day old) Moon. I finally captured it during the day. I have such a hard time getting a day time shot of the moon. Wasn't sure what I was doing wrong, it was always too faint, not a lot of details, just a bad shot. But this time, (2/12/11) I finally got it! Day 44 #365Project @sharkbayte
Happy Valentine's Day!!!!    POTD February 14, 2011 - Best viewed in X2    This classic Ford truck is really red, but I was experimenting with PP - just playing around really.  But I kind of liked this effect.  I particularly liked the reflections of the Mustang in the side, the grass in the wheels and the understated color of this beauty.    Best viewed in x large to see the fine detail.    Here's the 'original' shot straight out of the camera:   http://lgood.smugmug.com/gallery/12442807_L6QVo/#1187288707_Bu2oA    Thanks for all you kind comments this week.  Have a good one!!!!    Best regards.,  Linda
March 10, 2011    Up close & personal with a real classic beauty.  I'm sorry I didn't get the details on this lovely car, but I was too enthralled with it to snap a photo of the tag.  I really loved the colors and the reflections in the front fenders were amazing.  One of my all time favorites, and that's high praise for as many classic cars as I've seen.    Hope you all enjoy, and that this beauty brings you a happy smile today.      Thanks to everyone for your very kind comments on my photos over the last few days.  I'm still on the road, and working hard.  I've not been able to comment as much as I'd like to and enjoy all of your wonderful photos, but the plan is to get caught up this weekend.    Have a good one!    Linda

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
