It is hard to find compositions during the beginning of winter when everything seems monotone..Ralph, my dog, and I walk every morning and I always carry my Canon G12 or if it's raining, the G9, which has been around a long time and has survived a lot of rain and snow...this was taken the other day while we were walking; looking down and using macro sometimes is the answer to images this time of year..I liked the look of these mushrooms on the deadwood...

I am the mentoring chairperson for our club, the Photographic Society of RI, and had a few people from the mentoring class (for people new to digital photography) with me...unfortunately, due to the rain, we only photographed about an hour...

Last summer was a bad one for him: he had Lyme disease and also developed Cushings disease, which is PPID in horses..it occurs when the pituitary gland begins overproducing hormones; it can be devastating for an animal. I treated him with Doxycycline for Lyme but also have to keep him on Pergolide to control the hormone production...I take every day as a gift to have him with me.

taken with my trusty G9, which I unfortunately will be retiring because of scratches on the lens and a ton of dust inside the camera..what is that all about? How did the dust get in behind the lens? oh well, these questions will remain unanswered as I make the transition to the G12 that I've had a couple of years but barely used...

incredible sight..these are a few of the images from that tour..the top one is a rusted, burned out car detail; the second is sunrise from Preacher's point with a lot of wind and a long exposure; the next is sunrise at the North Saskatechwan river and the last is from Rampart Creek...now that I have returned home, there is a project in my mind..it is one that has proven elusive: an image a day for a year...hope to start it tomorrow to see if I can keep it going..it won't be easy..

This weekend I am off to the Canadian Rockies for the fifth time. It is a place that provokes a feeling of peace and belonging in me; there is just something about the Canadian Rockies in Alberta and British Columbia that is inexplicable...I have been blown away by Fitz Roy and Torres del Paine, but there is a quiet strength in the Canadian Rockies that seems to touch my soul...the mountains there are not as dramatic as the Andes but every bit as impressive...

This was taken at a nearby small waterfall and brook...it was difficult to find compositions along the brook yesterday...don't know if it's because I haven't been out photographing the last week or so because of a really bad cold. I like this image better than any other taken. I used the blue/gold Singh Ray polarizer but dialed it down a lot as the water was looking too blue..also, did some desaturation in ACR when I processed it.
