Ghosts

Had some lovely fog this morning. Wish I'd have had a bit more time, but did click a few on my way to work.

Sorry, guys. This is a beaver slough that got drained last summer. Can't decide which of these I like the best:

All of them are awesome. Love the colors and the way the fog sets the scene.

I love the second photo of the ghost tree. Beautiful. The beaver slough has me stumped--I like the sun of the first, the grass detail of the second and the shadows of the third and fourth. Don't suppose you could combine them all into one for me, could you?

The first image in the beaver pond series is beautiful!! I would love to see what the image would have looked like with a neutral density filter to tone down the sun.....Love the majestic white pine in the second image.

Great series, if I had to pick a favorite of the beaver slough, I think I would pick the second one. They are all great though.

What a great series Ken with all that cool light. It sure looks like there will be a few more days like that to come in the near future.

Thanks all! A couple of thoughts run through my head when I look at these reply's. The first is just how different we all are in what we like when we see an image. So many people like this one or that one for their own reasons. Sometimes I have to remember that when I'm working for a client. What I see, or what I like is not necessarily what they're looking for. I think it's the exceptional image that has a bit of something for everyone to grab on to. The other thought (I guess a little along the same line)is kinda what Sarah had to say. I wish I could take bits and pieces of these and put 'em together as one, and I suppose with Photoshop I could, but for me, that takes some of the joy out of finding that perfect shot. Don't get me wrong, I PS as much as anybody, but I'm looking (and probably always will be) for that shot that includes all the elements that make it a universal winner! Good luck to us all in that quest! smile

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
      Considering the psychedelics are the most harmless group of drugs out there then by all means go for it. This is exactly what I mean when talking about legalization, public opinion in this country is so far away from the actual science it is kind of scary. Heck when prohibition was rocking pot was 100% legal here, just think about that for a second. There is almost no rhyme or reason to many of our laws you are a shining example of that.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
