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

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
