Seaons - Life Goes On

Welcome! - It's the start of another week and time to share a little of the happenings in my neck of the woods.

I'm joining Jesh (St. Germains) for SEASONS



The flowers continue to bloom and now that the extreme heat has died down a bit they are looking pretty decent.  This is one of my lilies in bloom.  I was playing around with DOF (Depth of Field) shots when I took this one.


Took a drive up to Bennington Lake the other day.  Shot this view of the Blues (The tower in the back ground is a Cell Tower) I love that this shot shows the mountains, the dirt road, a wheat field and a vineyard all at one time.


More camera experimenting.  This time with a shot of the moon.  I'm actually pleased that I got a half was decent shot.  I didn't have the camera on the tripod but I think it turned out okay anyway.


It's always time around here to enjoy photographing one of our many cats.  This one is Spooky-Boo.




We had more baby ducks visit.  The mom had 5 of them one day & 4 the next.  Sadly for some reason she abandoned them on  Saturday.  Coleen wanted to try and rescue them and eventually after one of the babies was hit by a car and killed we managed to rescue the remaining 3 and took them to the city park where hopefully they will have a better chance at surviving.


 
 
So that's a bit of life around here.  There are some stressful things going on as well right now that I'd appreciate prayers for.

  11. This beautiful series - you should use all these photos for more than SEASONS! Love the while lilies. And the scene with the hills could be in my area! Although I'm more of a dog person, your capture of the cat is amazing! Thanks so much for sharing this with SEASONS - much appreciated! Have a happy week:)

  13. love the ducks, mom usually won't abandon them without a really good reason. had you not rescued them, none of them would have made it. the rest, have a slim chance anyway, i fear larger prey will get them!!!

  25. It's so sad about the ducklings. They're probably young to survive on their own, but there's a chance. Beautiful shots of the moon and the lilies. Spooky Boo is such a good subject, and your scenery is magnificent!
