Two days before Thanksgiving

Today is predicted to be in the sixty degree range of temperatures; strange for November, but not that unusual...this image is a twisted, gnarled stump taken on my daily walk...I like the weird pattern and movement in it...this is the time of year that I miss my parents the most; because it is a time of memories...remembering all the Thanksgiving dinners my mom cooked when I was a kid...and how brief that childhood was, although at the time it seemed like forever...

Wind and cold

This was taken a couple of days ago at the reservoir..a lot of wind, a lot of clouds..but a few good images..

Dreary morning

This morning is still dreary with rain and wind...able to get off a few shots but nothing I'm crazy about..I do like the framing of this tree by the large trees in foreground...I guess the ferns, which for some reason are still alive and green in November, are my best image from this morning..will go out later with slr and try to shoot the brook way up in back..

After the rain...

These two images were taken this morning after a nasty rain and wind storm..

didn't seem to see much this morning on my walk, but came out with a couple of images that are usable...the light was only good for a short time, then it was just too white very quickly and lost the color of sunrise..the lower image was changed with the polaroid transfer filter in tiffen dfx..I like that effect on this particular image..the other is just morning sun catching the trunks of oak trees...

Monday blues

Originally, it was my intent to post an image per day...that may have been too ambitious; the idea has undergone some changes with the intent to now post images every few days...because I just can't get a good image every day; some days I come home with stuff that's just dull
..there are three images today, all taken with the Canon G9, as are most of the images posted here..I always carry my camera with me, especially when walking Ralph through the paths in the woods, and just shoot anything that looks interesting to try to develop a better eye for composition.

Here are two more images..the one on the left was taken at Beavertail last Friday during a time of low tide..this enabled me to climb down to the base of a ravine with rocks on either side..
