Day 358 - After Christmas Day Fri. Dec. 26, 2014  Pheeww.... I need a rest!
Another shot for the "Where Is Tessie?" series.  In Hell's Canyon, ID. Her first time in that state.
25.12.14 - All Quiet on the Western Bypass!  This is usually just about the busiest road in Lincolnshire, but yesterday it was like a country lane, hardly a soul travelling anywhere. We were at a friend's house at the opposite end of Lincoln, and she was cooking so I took the chance to go for a long run around areas I've not been to for a while. Later I walked to this bridge hoping for a nice sunset, but nothing materialised, and there wasn't even enough traffic for good light trails. But I thought this was still a good reflection of Christmas Day, most people were probably sprawled in front of the TV having eaten far too much :)   Merry Christmas yet again, and thank-you for the wonderful comments and best wishes. Yesterday marked the start of my 8th year with Smugmug, and soon I'll be starting my 8th year on the Dailies :)
Friday, December 26, 2014  " 'TWAS THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS"  "There are four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles." ~ Unknown Author  And the story goes like this...........  'Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house, Not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse. Santa is relaxing in his La-Z-Boy Recliner, Glad there are no post Christmas day complainers or whiners. He is indulging in William Curley's scrumptiously delicious,  Mouthwatering, yummylicious   "House Milk Chocolate Truffles" (my favorite) In hopes that Mrs. Claus is in the kitchen fixing supper! ~ by God's Child (Me)  To order, William Curley's official website is here:   http://williamcurley.co.uk/index.html  Thanks for your Christmas well-wishes yesterday; I hope everyone had a blessed day with family and friends!

October 10, 2013  Red Mountain - as seen along one of the trails we were riding in Colorado.  According to Wikipedia:  Red Mountain is a set of three peaks in the San Juan Mountains of western Colorado in the United States, about 5 miles south of Ouray. The mountains get their name from the reddish iron ore rocks that cover the surface. Several other peaks in the San Juan Mountains likewise have prominent reddish coloration from iron ore and are also called "Red Mountain".   Nearby Red Mountain Pass is named after Red Mountain, and the ghost town mining camp of Red Mountain Town is located at the foot of the Red Mountains.  Have a "red-letter day today my friends."

There is a late Victorian train station in the small town of Durand, Michigan, which now serves a dual role as a railroading museum and an unattended Amtrak station.  Each Christmas the community supplies lavish decorations in the form of trees, each decked out by a different organization, and overall room decor.  This year's room theme was candy and snowflakes.  I've tried to provide a little sense of the overall space with this montage.  DP354-2014  Posted Saturday, December 20; created ditto from photos taken December 13 The top two images in the montage show decorations along the top of the former ticket booth;  the lower two show decorations at the tops of the main columns in the room and across the ceiling.  You get a glimpse of some of the trees in the shot in the lower right.  All told, throughout this room and the rest of the building, there were probably a couple of dozen trees.  Full frames views of these shots can be seen starting here:  http://smu.gs/13nziqs  Title:  Snowflakes and Peppermint Candy at Durand
12/25/14 - Merry Christmas to all!  Hope everyone has a wonderful day!  Thanks for all your comments and Christmas wishes on our Annual Christmas Card!  I appreciate all the support throughout the year and the many friends I've made here on Smugmug!  Thanks for posting thousands of wonderful images that have enriched my life over the past year.
Twice a year, in early winter, and again in early spring, I see significant numbers of trumpeter swans on this stretch of the river.  I enticed several pairs to come closer by feeding shelled corn.  Three pairs came to feed, while others remained far out in the river, or near the far shore.  DP348-2014  Posted December 14; processed ditto See full resolution versions of these two shots, along with several other images for the swans taken on the same occasion, in my swans gallery, here:  http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Birds/Birds-Waterfowl1-Swans/5655185_xzcB2w  Gallup Park, Ann Arbor December 11, 2014  Title:  They're Back!  Trumpeter Swans on the Huron River  Note added:  The right hand picture is not a crop.  It's the full frame as it came from the camera.  With the swans in constant motion, coming closer and moving farther away, I couldn't always re-zoom and re-focus both for my shots.  The zoom on the camera I was using (a point and shoot) is not exactly fine touch, so in camera composition on the fly with a moving subject is an adventure.
December 23, 2014:  A typical SE Michigan wet, white and blue Christmas.
Frosty, the Devil and a Christmas Tree    Another shot from the Devil's Garden:  this one reminded me of a snowman (even with a belly button).
July 18, 2012 - '58 Corvette    From a recent client commissioned shoot..  We delivered 49 proofs last night...  This was without a doubt the most rewarding automotive shoot I've done in a long time..  This beautifully restored 'resto-rod' has been upgraded in all the right places and shows so very well..      You can see over 30 additional images here: http://smu.gs/Ph9Mco    HAGD,        HB
September 7, 2013  This is a shot from underneath the Mesa Arch - shot after having been there well before sunrise, but the cloud cover didn't give us the glowing red of the iconic shots you've seen.    Me, and 5 other photographers from all over the world waited for the sun to rise. One man was there from Sweden - he was certainly the one that traveled the furthest of the group gathered there that morning.  After realizing that we weren't going to get the iconic shot we started to pack up and leave,  But me and some of the others started taking different shots from and around the Mesa Arch.  For this shot, I was "sitting" on the rocks at the bottom of the arch.  I hope you can see the formation in the distance that is called The Old Washerwoman (check this photo out in Xlarge).    From this vantage point, it's pretty easy to imagine that the structure in the distance does in fact look like a woman washing laundry on a rock.    Constructive critiques are welcome  Have a great day!  Linda
12/24/14 - Merry Christmas, everyone!  May the joy of the holidays stay with us all year long!  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the bowling shoes!
