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

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
