    ^ Great set! That's a beautiful landscape, too. But this:
    Is my fave. Love the colors, composition, and DoF. Really lovely to look at!

    Doesn't sound weird at all. Water is *very* tough to capture (at least for me). I find longer exposures work best ... but that's tough to do in daylight.

    And congrats on the big photo day, too! It's always fun to come back with a trove of captures and go through them. I tend to go overboard (spending 4-6 hours on a photoshoot, ending up with 700-800 captures) ... but there's nothing like coming home, importing the images ... and seeing the results of being out there shooting.

    Especially when the results are like the ones you've shared.

    100 is a lot for me. usually i'm out hiking with friends and don't have a great deal of time to shoot. but i do love uploading my pics, seeing how they turned out, what was blurry and the surprise beauty pics.

    and again, thanks for the kind words.

    Those are lovely, Saga! You have a real eye for composition.


    This morning, I cleaned out my computer. It was running slow, and hot, especially since I've been gearing up in the folding@home project. Now, though, it's nice and clean. I mean, sure, it's 6 years old, but it looks new! :D

    Our High School Observatory held another of their family open houses last night. We try to make every one of them. Cultivating the love of science in my children is important to me. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening, 60 degrees and crystal clear skies.

    Ian looking through one of the smaller telescopes at the surface of the moon, he could make out craters.

    Ian using the large telescope to check out Jupiter. He was so excited about this, Jupiter is his favorite planet. He loved seeing the bands of color from the storms, he could also see four of Jupiters moons. Unfortunately the giant eye was on the backside.

    Yup. The colors will be like the ones above. I shopped in some pixels.

    I had seen many vultures in Utah but never here in the suburbs.

    I've seen actual wild turkeys within the city boundaries in my area. They occasionally pop up in broad daylight by the side of a road or near a local business.
