Crimson and Clover...



Acutally a Columbine and a Clover but the Crimson part made for a better post title! 

These are both hand held but it was a nice bright day so the shutter speed would have been fairly high making for nice sharp captures.

I'm a day late but....

 
...Happy 4th of July!!
 
I spent the day working an art show on Ka'anapali beach. It was great to be able to walk out of the booth and into the ocean and then right back to the booth selling again. I couldn't ask for a better job!
 
I know, you feel sorry for me for having to work on a holiday don't you? LOL
 
After the show another photographer and I spent some time on the beach watching an amazing sunset. Since we both were working the show neither one of us brought our cameras so we looked like a couple of tourists with our cell phones taking photos.

Big bird, little bird...





Two of ninety odd pictures from the "Airport Beach" in Port Hardy. Push the shutter button enough times you're bound to get a good picture or two. Kind of like playing the lottery with much better odds! :)

Composition Mistake!

This is what I get when I'm lazy or in the rush.

Hawk yes, but what kind?


Usually I have no problem identifying what kind of bird I've taken a picture of but this Hawk has me a bit buffaloed... Might be a juvenile Sharp-shinned Hawk or might be a Cooper's Hawk or it could be something altogether different. Any ideas?

What a beauty!


This beautiful old wooden vessel was built in 1960 and served as a Forestry Patrol Vessel for 37 years before being retired. After that the vessel went into private ownership and is used as a yacht.

Smoked Salmon first batch of the year...


Secret recipe brine, light Alder smoke and honey glazed but you wouldn't like it, it's an acquired taste... :)

West Coast kindling...


I only got a few pieces of firewood today, can't understand why I'm sore and tired!

Minutes old...


I came across this Doe and her just born Fawn this morning and took a few pictures. Later as I drove back past this same place I saw that she'd had twins.

Iris in the rain...


Whenever I see one of these beautiful Lilly's I am reminded of these two verses from the "Sermon on the Mount": 

Mathew 28 And why are ye anxious concerning your clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
