Great Post Charlie! Photography is one of my OTHER Hobbies. Usually have my Little Kodak Digital with me especially if I’m just “Goin’ Out ForA Drive” or something like that. It’s only 3.1 Mega Pixels but it gets the job done.

Especially if you know how to use the ”Shutter Release” Properly as Versus ”Whackin’ The Hell” out of it ...LOL..

Love to Post a few here. Thank You!!

This one is in a small bay off of Lake Ontario, in a Park. Freezing Rain most of the day, it just stopped and the Sun was just begining to set, off to the right.

WOW! They really cut them down. That was 933×700 and it dropped to 500×375. I guess it’s the Width that sets it??

Try this one. it’s the other way round …LOL..

A Conservation Area I go to quite a bit, mainly for Photos. I just turned off a Slushy Highway and straight into this. Hit The BRAKES!! ......Newly Fallen Snow, not yet disturbed.

I’m thinking the Magic Number is 500 ....LOL… That was 533×800 and came out here at 333×500. I’m also downsizing them so they’ll fit.

This one is my All Time Favourite so far. I was in a Food Court. Had the Camera because I had to get a New Battery. MY LUCKY DAY!! ....A “Challenged” Mother pushing her Little Girl in a Stroller with Her “Service Dog” came in. Goldens Are The BEST!! I had one for 12 Years. “A Kiss For Goldie”.

That’s better! I UPPED that one.

I was driving home from a Friends place one night. Took a few side roads. OOPS! BRAKES! Actually it was right in front of an OLD Cemetery that I’d been to before. Looks like an ORB in the Upper Right Corner. QUICK! Call William Shatner! Maybe I can get on “Weird Of What!!!”

Flowers and/or Insects are another favourite. This was taken on a Macro Setting. Flower is actually only about 1” across. I have NO idea what kind it is or The Bugs on it either. They were all there to ENJOY...Not to eat each other…LOl…

I also have a fetish (Say What?) okay …Like Railway Tracks. This is up North on a Fishing Trip. Ran it through my Litle Editor and did a Sepia on it. Used it for My Desktop for a while.

Okay. That’s enough for now. Don’t want to Hog too much of Your Great Post Charlie. This is a Hell of a lot better then taking Picture then leaving them on your Computer to look at once and a while!!

Thanks Again Charlie! “I’ll Be Back” .....says The Terminator ..LOl.

Here’s a couple of photos of a ‘hoarfrost’ event from about a year ago: Photobucket
This happens during a very cold day, when warm, moist air suddenly moves in and the moisture condenses on the cold surfaces and re-freezes. Photobucket thanks for looking! Thanks, CharlieM!

Charlie: Thanks for the Compliment! I think I got the “Size” thing figured out!! If they come from Photobucket they’ll take up the whole space here. 1024×768 (above). If they come via Computer/Amazon they Resize them to 500 Wide by whatever. PIDDLE!! ..LOL…

GREAT PHOTOS ALL!! Lot’s of colour in that one “darin”!! Gona have a look see and Post a few more. OH! Just remembered …THINK I did a “Project” on my “Kitchen Wall Photo Display Rack” Look later.

I Planted some ”Russian Mammoth Sunflowers” last year.GEEZ!! Went OVER 8 Feet Tall and at least 12” to 18” Heads! Birds AND Yellow Jackets (for some reason) Loved them!

This is a Macro of one of them. His “Buddy” was Walking around my Right Hand and Arm when I took this.

Fishing Last Year. This Bullfrog Befriended us so we kept Him/Her with us for the day. Is this a “Contented Bull Frog” or what??

Gorgeous unset CampD. We are now getting a little of the white stuff here. Supposed to get 10-18 inches, with the temp at -8° F right now. Hopefully no wind, since that cools it even more.

All in all, there are some awesome pictures being shown. Thanks for the thread Charlie.

Hey!! That Little guy looks just like me! (65+ Years Ago) Nice One Ms Debbie!!

WHOA!! I just thought! I get a Birthday this Year. Leap Day Baby, 29th. DARN! I Hate it when that happens!! ;-}

These Pics are ”For The Birds.” They Nested right outside of my Front Door. So! Out comes the Camera!!

They got so use to me it didn’t bother them a bit. No ZOOM on these. I was Leaning on the Bench where one of them is Standing on the Arm Rest.

First Pic orients the other ones. Nest was in the Spruce at the Back beside the White Pole. The other Bench was a neighbour ”Throw Away” that I Claimed and Re-Built. Looked kinnda “Bare” so I did the 2 Kiddies from a 2” drawing, from somewhere.

Feeding Time!!! Again!!

They Never Stopped Feeding!!

This Guy (I Think) Had a Habit of Falling Out Of The Nest!! Sorry Pal. Rick ain’t got no Worms for You! Quality of Pic not all that good. Kinda Hard to Control a Wee One and Focus a Camera at the same time.

He Gave up and decided to have a Little Snooze!

Maybe I should call myself “The Bird Whisperer” ...LOL…

Enjoy Guys!!

Thanks Charlie,
Whut kin I say, chicks, er uh “birds” like me. ;-)

BTW, 600mm Orion Telescope with an early Canon Digital Rebel DSLR on a tripod. Leslie and I find that it pretty much takes ~600mm of focal length to get good close-ups. Never mind having ~25 bird feeders off the front porch facing down a ridge so that we are looking straight ahead when viewing into the trees. In other words, lots of lucky positioning to get a few really good shots. I think the Canon is now reading over 10,000 exposures over it’s lifespan thus far.

That’s why I stick mostly to flowers. They let you get real close without getting spooked.

The photo at the top of the page was taken with my Nikon D3100 and a Tamron 60mm f2.0 lens. That wide aperture makes it easy to get those nice, blurry backgrounds that highlight a subject so nicely. Not much use for birding, though. :-)

Great photos all…... I was born and raised south of Worcester. Ma. Had my fill of snow for 19 years. I now reside in Al. Yes we have had some snow at times. My home is near Montgomery, and when bad winter storms come thru, areas north of Montgomery get the worst of it. We may get a dusting, but at times we have had up to 8”.

The best time for a good look at snow, is the next day, when it is pristine, undisturbed and shimmering in the morning light. After that, forget it.

We can still get that effect with the 600mm f/7.5 plus Canon setup when the bird is close (takes a lot of waiting). Here is a Rufous Hummingbird, a Native West Texas bird and a winter bird for us in Central Texas, taken in December of 2007. The background of the late autumn color changed leaves almost looks like a canvas highlighting the bird’s coloration.

Nice shot Charlie and like your slide show. Photography and Woodworking are the second loves of my life. The last few years I haven’t done much work with either only because of health problems. One of the members here shares a great deal of his day to day experiences with me which gives me a real feeling of participating when I can’t right at the moment. He’s become a true friend and that’s Roger Bean. Anyway thought I would share a couple of photos from the same spot at different times of the year. We live faiirly close to Yosemite N.P. so I used to spend a great deal of time photographing the park. This location is called Valley View and the first was photographed in the Spring and the second in the Winter. Snow is late coming this year but last night and this weekend will bring plenty of snow.

On the way to the job site last week, the guys stopped to get coffee and I’m left in the truck to guard the tools. Always carry a camera I tell my daughter and that day I got lucky. Twenty pigeons having breakfast when something startled them, me with a Panasonic DMC ZS-7 resting on the rear view mirror and my finger on the shutter. f/4.9 1/125sec. Given their eviction notice they were.
