Sunset parade....

Every one of these sunset photographs were taken within about a 15 minute time span.  The lighting and cloud formations changed so quickly and the colors were awesome.  A quick trigger finger on the camera was required to get all of these.

No titles needed for this set as the photos should speak for themselves.  Enjoy!

  I hope you enjoyed the light show.  If you have a few fun sunset pictures then try sharing with all of the rest of us amateur photographers and other lookers.  Also, don't forget to leave comments here as we love to know what you enjoy most.  If you are not a blogger then you can leave a comment anonymously as well.

Fall Away Fall.....

Fall is falling...Have you noticed?  The sun still shares it's warmth on some lucky days while the cool mountain air flows down the hillsides and across the reeds.

Cattails shield water as a warm sun and cool breeze caresses them....

Half dressed trees rule the byways as leaves fall and leave them bare..

Foggy Bottom....

Even though these were taken at the end of summer, the heavy morning fog creates a cold and desolate swamp at the edge of a lake.  Cold and a little spooky...

Winter atmosphere on a cold foggy day

Strips of trees swamped but sticking together no matter the water or the weather..

The fog is settling in for a quiet grey snooze

A lake is hidden under the foggy blanket
Later the moon found it's way through the foggy evening

Winter is coming..winter is coming.

Now that we are all facing the fact that winter is on the way, maybe a few odds and ends taken during our last cold season.  The end of a plants life does not mean the end of the plant or flower.  Seed pods fill and dry and drop their seeds to lie in wait for next spring when they can pop back up through the ground to present us with a new field of beauty.

And the Promise of a new Begining

Ecclectic tastes...

Eclectic tastes leaves room for a little of this and that.  Here are a few fun pictures taken this summer.  A little sky, a little earth and a few of God's creatures....

 Beautiful swimmers as well as flyers

The night sky brings them alive in the sky
 but daylight makes for the best napping
 for these little guys

New life can reach through to the sunlight when determined

Ok, come on guys and gals and join in.  I guess I can keep posting my pictures all by myself but it's much more fun when we have a variety of pictures and styles to share.  Think you are too much of a novice?  No way.  Think you are too old or too young?  Again.. not applicable.  Do you like to take pictures of people, places and things?  Well then... let's see what you've got.  We promise to enjoy them.

Throwback to spring/summer...

Before we forget completely what summer was all's a few more recent memories.  Insects busy at their work, being so industrious that I am continually inspired to come back for more of summer's possibilities.  Now that fall is in full swing and winter approaching we might as well reminisce for a few moments.  If you have some seasonal photo's you've taken that you want to share please consider joining us at any time.

Kids, Parents, siblings... come on and join in.  Perhaps you can work as a team to come up with something unique and fun to photograph.  Use lighting and shadows to your advantage.. focus or blurring, color or black and white or sepia tone, shapes and sizes and then of course the subject.  Try some new things. Use your imagination and don't try to follow all the rules, just have fun.

Sunrise in a Misty Dawn

Sunrise or just can't beat them. especially when you can get up before dawn and watch the sun peek over the horizon while it sifts it's warm rays over the land and water.  A little mist in the air gives the light a soft and mysterious feel.

Mist in the early morning lays on the water..

The fine white plants were covered
