Snow, Sabourin

It was only the beginning by Steven

Posted on 2017-03-22

After a winter season of only two inches of snow which had fallen in November of 2016, we were hoping that winter would go out like a lamb. That would not be the case.

A snowstorm from the west, coupled with lake-effect snow from the north pummeled Lake County shoreline communities with fourteen inches of snow.

As the title implies, this was only the beginning with lake-effect snow continuing in waves most of the day on March 14, 2017.

Maroon Drama by Taylor

Posted on 2014-10-08

My first trip ever to Aspen, Colorado and I was greet with a light snow shower and overcast skies. I arrived at the Maroon Bells and the mountain was completely obscure behind the clouds. I was about the give up when the clouds briefly opened up revealing this hidden gem! The changing aspen trees made for the perfect foreground in this wonderfully dramatic scene.

Pink Dahlia by Anita

Posted on 2016-10-17

I love to grow and photograph flowers. Dahlias have become some of my favorites in the past few years, despite the difficulty of overwintering the tubers. This is one of my 2016 Dahlias. I was inspired by Kathleen Clemons to use the color of the flower to fill in the corners and to blur the edge petals to create a LensBaby look. The little curls in the center made this flower special.

Baker (1) by Harry

Posted on 2018-03-15

We started in Old Salem, an historic district of Winston-Salem, NC. Costumed docents performed period crafts. Two bakers were making the sugar cake that we sampled with our coffee. Her job was to knead pockets into the dough to hold the sugar. There were some anachronisms, such as the plastic bucket holding the brown sugar in the lower right.

California Condor

California Condor by Elaine Hancock

Posted on 2014-03-26

This condor was huge even compared to the backdrop of the Grand Canyon. His flight was so graceful and it was wonderful to watch. This was taken later in the morning so the bright light was not the best. In December of 1996, six young captive-bred condors were released into the wild in Arizona by The Peregrine Fund from a site in the Vermilion Cliffs, 30 miles north of the Grand Canyon National Park. As of April 2013, 73 condors soar over northern Arizona and southern Utah.

Rodeo - Bronc Riding

Rodeo - Bronc Riding by B. Thomas

Posted on 2014-02-22

In rodeo bronc riding the participant is riding on a horse (sometimes called a bronc or bronco), that attempts to throw or buck off the rider. Originally based on the necessary horse breaking skills of a working cowboy, the event is now a highly stylized competition that utilizes horses that often are specially bred for strength, agility, and bucking ability. The rider attempts to stay on the horse for eight seconds without touching the horse with his free hand.

Tunnel View Blue Hour

Tunnel View Blue Hour by CW McGowen

Posted on 2017-05-31

The camera does not interpret light like our brains. The camera sees light strictly by its frequency. Understanding the temperature of light can open a whole new set of photographic opportunities.

Just after dusk when the reds have left the sky and yet the sky still has some residual light is called the Blue Hour by photographers. In this Blue Hour photo of Yosemite Valley you can see a couple of the first visible stars of the night if you look closely.

"A Left-Eyed View", Sabourin, "The El"

Convergence by Steven

Posted on 2014-05-01

The elevated tracks of Chicago's transit system, commonly referred to as "The El" ("El" for elevated) as captured from the rooftop of the parking garage at 177 N. Wells Street. These tracks converge at the intersection of Lake Street and Wells Street.

I made the mistake of going to the wrong parking garage "on the corner of Lake Street and Wells Street" the first time at 210 N. Wells Street, which cost me a lot of money for my five-minute stay.

Amish Neighbors by RBL

Posted on 2014-02-28

We live in the country surrounded by Amish Farms. We see the Amish everyday ... at the store, at the bank, working their farms or just traveling down the road. We live in a place where two worlds inter twine with each other in harmony. Israel pictured here; is working his farm ... we buy produce from him and his wife, Naomi and we also get firewood delivered from Stephen, another Amish fellow. It is nice having the Amish as our neighbors. (Photo taken in the Summer)

Sunrise at Driftwood Beach by Harry

Posted on 2016-10-16

I chose Jekyll Island because I had seen sunrise pictures at Driftwood Beach. As we we headed to the island, tropical storm Julia was in the news, and we we afraid we would be rained out at best, or flooded out at worst. But the storm rushed out to sea, then stalled just off the coast. So the weather above us was nice, but the two mornings I attempted sunrise photos were fairly mediocre.

Footpath after Dusk

Footpath after Dusk by Photonicstone

Posted on 2014-10-08

Silver Star Mountain accessible enough for thorough exploration. I overnight under the stars and wake up to views of the major sourrounding mountains Pah'to (Adams), Loo-Wit (St. Helens), WyEast (Hood), and Talol (Rainier). North Amercian Cougar (Puma Concalor) and American Black Bear (Ursus Americanus) roam the talus slopes, and riots of wildflower splash through in spring and summer.

Wintertime in Pennsylvania

Winter in Pennsylvania by Denny Jump

Posted on 2015-01-13

The fields are bare, the trees are bare.
We can see the shapes and we can see across expansive fields
that, in summer, are filled with crops.
I don't like to be cold but I love what winter brings us in Pennsylvania: Clouds, Wind, Cold air, Geese, Geese, more Geese :-)

Amish Boy

Amish Boy by Anita

Posted on 2014-03-19

Ivan is one of my neighbors. Here he is in our barnyard holding the reins of his family's pony. You might notice that the brim of his hat has fallen off due to wear and tear. The hat is a hand-me-down from older brothers. The lamp on his hat is for doing outdoor work at night as the Amish do not have electricity. His mother gave me permission to photograph him.

It was moved in 1971 to be part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways Park near Alley Spring, Missouri. My aunt went to this school. Notice the paddle hanging up by the window!

Alaska Girl Catching Bubbles

Alaska, Baby Girl Catching Bubbles by Linda Candilas

Posted on 2015-06-03

This was fun stuff, watching my baby girl catching bubbles. It was late sunset, so this is a silhouette photo of her.:))It's my favorite because I don't get to visit her but about once a year, they live in Alaska. The sunset was perfect, the light was right and I had bubbles to play with. I knew this would be a great photograph before I took it, how could it not be.

Sunrise. Holbrook Reservoir. Massachusetts. by Shaun

Posted on 2018-10-29

Just a few months ago at the start of the summer, the reservoir was quite low and I could walk over parts of the area that should have been under water. After a few very heavy storms the reservoir was again full, easing water restrictions in the area.

Fantastic Fox!

Fantastic Fox! by B. Thomas

Posted on 2015-05-13

This wonderful gray fox has been coming into our yard for brief visits for over three years. I just happen to think he is one of the most beautiful creatures I have ever seen. This is Nacho, the daddy fox.

It is no accident that Nacho, the fox, wanders by our yard almost every evening. He knows he is likely to get his favorite treat - some grapes.

On the way to Florida, we took a short detour to St Simons Island. We only had time for lunch and a short walk around the central part of the town. I pulled out my infrared camera and shot a few frames.

I have always been interested is ships. Each time I look at large vessels entering or leaving ports, I always admire the small tug boats that guide large ships and the skill of the crew that maneuver huge ships into position when entering narrow docking areas.

The Sky - 1 by Denny Jump

Posted on 2018-05-17

The Sky!
The one body that impacts all of us.

Some, like me, keep an eye on the sky all day long - checking the clouds and conditions and colors and, really, just looking up to get a dose of spiritual or mental relief and inspiration.
I am certain that many of us have a commonality in this regard...

The sky is my "constant." And I am so very glad that the Great Sky is up there...different every day and inspirational always.
