Pot luck challenge this week, anything we want! It’s been great spring weather, too. Almost summery, but not quite there yet.
(click to enlarge) I took this panorama from Chanticleer Point looking east up the Columbia Gorge for an assignment in my digital photography class. It took a tripod, four pictures, and some help from my photo editing program to stitch them together.
The resident Redtail Hawk lazily circling overhead.
The dogs get might thirsty trudging and keeping an eye on us humans all the time!
Wow, I think this is the hardest challenge Ed has ever given us, at least for me. Only two pictures! I’ve taken so many photos during the year, and I have so many favorites! Due to the virus the computer got on Christmas Eve, all the pictures taken before that were on disc, so I didn’t have time to go through all of them, so I finally settled on these two, both from late in the year.
This probably one of my favorites of all the frosty barb wire that I’ve taken. It’s the desktop background, too!
I love love love this one. It’s one thing to get a really good picture of one hawk, but two, the other one swooping past, is pretty rare for a amateur photographer.
Ed over over at Sunday Stills was out of ideas for this week’s challenge, so he left it up to us to decide what to shoot. I decided to try wild life…
“Lurking In the Dark” This one just kind of happened by accident, the deer were too far off for the flash to illuminate them…
Our resident tame squirrel.
Lucky shot! shutter speed is an amazing thing…
I guess he decided that I had gotten close enough; time to fly to a different tree.
New tree, but still within the range of my lens.
◊◊◊ Note: These are all straight out of the camera, in case you were wondering. All I did was crop them to make the pictures/files were smaller.
This is one of the two Red-tail hawks that have been hanging around lately. While the cows were still out in the field, he/she would be waiting in the old dead cherry tree in the Fourteen acre field, just watching us and keeping a watchful eye on things.
