Lizards eye..... you decide...
Are we ever alone, when the eyes of lizards are watching us.
Ruffled and Delicate
Like a dusty layered petticoat ruffles a floor flowing skirt, this ageing edged rose encases its' petals of delicacy.
Light is all-things...
Light and water drops make glowing possibilies.
Maybe it's not a bug
How close would you want to be if this were a bug.
After 87 images
I rotate my flower vase incremently in place again and again. Then I move around the available light myself. After 87 images I can come up with 2 or 3 I may be comfortable with. I attempt to improve my composition, my sharpness and what helps to make an image interesting.
Ripples, Curls and Lines
Using a side light angle for this image has helped to capture the ridges of this rose petal.
That's all there was.....
With the little light for one hour, it helps me to focus on developing my composition. I still may not be good at it. However with less light, I focus on whatdoes stand out and voila, I seem to get better composition. IMO.
Usually the available light passes before I am done, hence the title. As if they are breeze-weight feathers. Parrot tuilips. -March.
Jellyfish or Not
A slow start to 2018 in you deciding whether this is just up close. Parrot Tulips. -March.
Crispyness of Fresh
To be born a-new..... with the crispyness of fresh.
Beads of Hydration
The irrodescence of nature is not disturbed.
A Wondering Curve
Reflection of a petal... maybe this is two petals....
Petal Hatching its' Shell
Low natural light from the clouds sheds the outer layer of a tulip. Whati's inside, priceless.
Take a Hike
When the hunting is no good then -take a hike.
Still Like a Stick
This is the hunting theory of the Blue Heron, and it works.
The early sun does a nice job of showing shades of green.
Path to a Pond
As a duck travels thru the reeds of the willows it can find the safety of water.
Light the Tulip
The sun came out and was on the down-side light of the day. Reflection from the glass table made it possible for this short touch of available light.
At the end of an hour, the clouds were rolling in for the daily aftenoon monsoon shower.
Reflections of chrome come alive when light exists.
Engine red has a differen meaning when you have chrome reflecting from the surface of another red iconic machine.
You cannot begin to appreciate the strike of lightning effect brought on by light for none of these chrome images would be alive as they seem.
The Last Cut
I suppose this logger had met his fate and decided to let mother nature take over.
Pools of green in July
Thaw of winter is complete with green ponds, beaver dens and the early sprout of seed grasses.
Wagon Bridge of Past
As the train hauls its load into the distance, this wooden wagon bridge of past was used to deliver chopped wood the nearby ovens, cooking wood down to coal and then loading trains to fuel their way and beyond.
Rustic to Rails
An old narrow guage line from the latest 1800's. The routine cargo was ore, headed to closest smelters and reduction plants in Leadville, CO.
The Morning Stretch
Beyond the reach of my lens, I waited 1/2 hr for movement on this water logged tree from this guy. When he did, his opened wings were a great show. I believe a Cormorant, I see them regularly at Officers Gulch. (my longer lens coming soon)
Frozen Dew Drops
July 12 and still get some early morning freeze. Maybe this is the beginning of a pea but not sure. I was more distracted by the frozen dew that I didn't take note of the rest of the plant or its stem and leaves.
All is green on the range
In June here, Summer Solstice occurred 2 days ago when our spring just got started. We'll now see shorter days and fall colors setting on our 2 days young summer season. Time for a hike!
