Jinxed


I think my new camera is jinxed! I first took it to Colorado a couple of weeks ago and got hit with a blizzard and torrential rains.

I took it to Oklahoma with me this past weekend and was hit with high winds, torrential rains, hail and a frickin' tornado!

The weekend wasn't a complete bust though. The weather did clear up for Saturday night and Q and I were able to have a nice fire and cook a steak dinner. 

The winds were too high for the ospreys to be active, I saw only four ospreys the whole weekend. We managed to get a few photos in a nearby small town so I will have something to post.

I'm headed to Texas next week. We see what the weather does then.

A Seagull dare gone horribly wrong!


Stephanie my wife took this picture of a Seagull with a Starfish a couple of days ago, I just had to share it!

I can think of a dozen funny captions to go with this shot... Love to hear what captions everyone out there in the blogosphere can come up with!

Recent bird pictures




I figured I better post these mediocre bird pictures before Ron gets back with some really spectacular Osprey images!

The first picture is an Eagle nest in downtown Port Hardy, The middle shot is a Turkey Vulture and the last picture is a couple of Seagulls arguing over a Sea Lion...

Just playing around


I'm headed to Oklahoma tomorrow for a few days with the cameras to see if the ospreys have returned. Hopefully the weather will calm down some so I can actually get the camera out of the bag!

Greetings from the Kale patch!


Stephanie waving at me from a patch of feral Kale that just showed up last year in an unused lot. Looks like this bunch will soon be gone to seed.

Yes I know... It's a cell phone picture, I was too lazy to dig out my good camera!

Blossomfall


Blossomfall, warmer than snowfall and dryer than rainfall and nice to look at too!

Busy, Busy, Busy..


I'm still having to dig through the old files to get some photos to post. My wife and I took a trip to Colorado last weekend so I could take some photos and as luck would have it, they had a blizzard!

We went up into the mountains around Evergreen and were there for about an hour before the snow started and then it just never stopped. By the afternoon they had the highways heading into the mountains closed and by the next morning the snow had hit Denver and we decided to run while we could. They were expecting 8-10 inches of snow and I wasn't going to stick around for that.

Getting out of Colorado was one of the longest and slowest drives I have made in a long time. We waited about two hours too long to start heading back. Once we were into Kansas and out of the snow we hit torrential rains for another two hours of stressful driving. Needless to say I didn't get any photos.

Cobwebs and dew


Everyone has heard of "Cobwebs" right?

So my question is just what exactly is a "Cob"
and have you ever seen one making a web?

The Buddha and the Moon


I've been playing with changing some of my photos into black and white just to get a different feel out of them.

Is that weird or artistic?
