Pixie Pic…

It’s been a great week, up here in the White River National Forest. No painting, a little sketching, and quite a bit of photography have made it productive.  Here are a few shots from yesterday. That’s it for today. Enjoy the Life your living.

Thursday Morning Musings…and Photos

I know, I shared this image of the Stew Wagon yesterday, but it kind of captures how I’m feeling about things, right now. I’m out in the wilderness, with all my stuff, ready for another adventure. So far, the day has been relaxed for me, here at the mill. There was a dusting of snow,…

Unusual Photography!

These ladies were grazing on a hillside about half a mile away from where I was. The sky was overcast, preparing for the snow that would fall overnight. I’d been shooting along the Blue River, outside Silverthorne, Colorado. Glancing up, I saw these tiny, odd, kind of balloon looking things way up the side of…

Brief Update and Thoughts…

Had a little snow overnight, but nothing to talk about. The wind, though!, rocked the Stew Wagon like a train car, waking me several times through the night. By morning, it had calmed down, and we were left with lovely white trees. There is no small snow mover, so this is what happens, even for…

Snow and Other Things…

It’s snowing again, up here at the mill. Yesterday, I had to use the A/C in the Stew Wagon. Another marvelous thing about where I live. The framework that you see at the top of this photo, is a portion of a giant conveyor. It moves Molybdenum fifteen miles, from the foot of Jones Pass,…

Gratitude…

A couple of Fridays ago, I had coffee with a good friend. We’ve been acquainted for a long time, so conversations usually go beyond the usual weather and kids kind of talk. This time, we got to talking about Gratitude, and its importance in our day-to-day experience. The consistent expression of Gratitude has several effects…

A Little Night Shooting…and Cougar Safety

With a marvelous full moon up in a nearly cloudless sky, I had to take advantage. These were shot using my Canon PowerShot SX40HS. Each of these is a 15 second exposure, set on Tv (shutter priority), then adjusted and cropped. Yes. Believe it or not, these are night shots. I dig these because they…

Love Missed…

When I met Scott, a few weeks ago, he was reading “The Great Gatsby”, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. That isn’t a book you see people reading, very often. Our tables were next to each other, at a local coffee shop in Arvada, Colorado. I asked him what he thought of the book, so far. He…

Three Little Pics…

Sometimes, it still amazes me how quickly things happen here. Springtime in the Rockies is not necessarily something to sing about. In the past two weeks, we’ve had several inches of snow, but you’d hardly know it. Tuesday, the sky dropped about six inches of the stuff on us. Yesterday, the temps warmed up and…
