Excuse me while I brag a little


This morning they have posted that my photo of the eclipse is a finalist in the Smithsonian (Air & Space Museum)  astronomy Photo contest.  A bit of a surprise to me!  I doubt I’ll get the popular vote, (feel free to vote anyway).  This is quite an unexpected honor.

December 2017 Super Moon

It was cold, I waited, It came!   :-)
Rising across the valley from me.

Another Fall photo


From the front porch.
I thank the farmer who built our house over a hundred years ago for building it in the middle of the property and not up by the road. It means that once and a while when the creek floods we can't get out, but this is what we get in return. (as usual,click on it for full size)

It's elk season.

They have been camping out here for three weeks. The local hunters are upset.

They don't mind me taking pictures.
               


 The above is a crop from the panorama below, which I made of them the other day. I had my 105mm macro lens & wasn't expecting to photograph anything closer or bigger than a bug.
