Re: Dogwood Forest

When I was young my parents and I followed a Yosemite ranger on a nature walk and being the man he is my dad said something I'll never forget. - The ranger has been standing there for awhile explaining the difference in certain trees and asked if anyone knew what makes the Dogwood special. - Withou...

Re: Fisher Creek in Color

Posted first in black and white and now here in response to comments under black and white. Oh, I like this version a lot. The soft rich greens of late summer, the clear water, the tree that has succumbed to the recycling demands of nature - all convey a peaceful, pleasant scene. If you wanted to d...

Sounds like a winner. I'm dealing with some limitations for now, so it's a good time for housebound projects.

Re: Finally dusted off the camera and took some shots.

Nice set that I am sure the couple will appreciate. You were able to isolate small groups and larger ones so that the pictures are cohesive and easy to look at. What a wonderfully and creatively cluttered setting they had for themselves! I love it. Now that you brought the camera out, keep it out! ...

Re: My Image - Your Look: The Golden Gate

Hey everyone, I took this on a cold, rainy day as a test shot and didn't think much of it. Sometime later Google sent a notice it had modified the photo and it changed the way I looked at the scene. I thought it would be fun to see what you could come up with as well, have us vote on the best of th...

Harris Tweed - On The Hoof and Beyond

The Isle of Harris is world famous for its tweed fabric and products. Here is a likely candidate for next year's product, and for reference, a traditional loom showing one of the beautiful fabrics. I'm particularly interested in what you think of the sheep...there will be more, but none nearly in le...

Re: Street Photography Awards

Thank you Ernst. In other forums I've participated in, I've seen raging arguments about what is and is not "street" photography. It seems that few genres have such trouble defining what they include or don't include. On a personal level I care more about seeing interesting photos than in w...

Re: Great White Egret 1

Nice detailed image of the proud strut I see them perform as they prowl about here, too. This fellow has that same white debris on his beak as mine usually do right after they partake of something fishy they've speared.

Re: Great White Egret 2

Beautiful egret, with a perfect reflection ( though I wish I could see more of his surroundings). This must have been taken near dark or very deep in the forest. Elegant bird with elegant detail.
