May 22, 2012    What the heck is this?      Many of you will guess, but some may not.    Let me say that first of all - I had pre-loaded this photo for my potd a week or so ago.  However, I got sidetracked while working on it & failed to hide it.  So it was "unveiled" a little early, and got a few comments ahead of time - which I really appreciate.      So here it is again today for it's "second" unveiling.  :-))    Give up on guessing what this is?      It's a close up shot as my husband Bill is welding a piece of metal to another metal thingy (that's a technical term) in our home workshop.      As mentioned on yesterday's potd - he gets so "in the groove" of doing whatever in his workshop that oftentimes he doesn't know that I've come in and am taking photos.      He did know I was taking this shot, and we had a good time trying to get the shot just right because the glow from the welder was tricking the camera's sensor.    I rather liked this one as it seems almost "other worldly" in it's appearance.  Check it out in X2 or X3 - it's pretty cool.    Thanks to everyone for you wonderful and fun comments on the photo I posted yesterday of Bill making sparks in the workshop!    Have an out-of-this-world sort of day today my friends!    Linda

3-06: I was in a precarious position while taking this shot so I didn't get it framed quite the way I wanted. This is the keyhole in the Devils Backbone. You can see where it is in the picture I posted for 3-02. My nerve is not what it used to be.
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
Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle
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 30 % of our total power consumption and this percentage is increasing from year to year
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

This Chess piece was one of many beautiful pieces on display at an awesome booth at the Safari Club International show. The whole booth featured gorgeous chess sets that were just stunning. Several, and this one in particular were over sized.

Hope you enjoy.
