The many faces of Sasha

Looking for birds and squirrels.

Give the dog a bone.

mmmm, mmmmm

This is my brother and sister-in-law's dog Sasha. She's a beautiful Chow but a little camera shy. I had a hard time getting her picture.

Zippy thought it was awesome too.

We took a drive to Steele City one afternoon. It turned out that on the way home there was a beautiful sunset. We stopped at the cemetary along the hwy to take some pictures. I had to lay in the cemetary to get the shot I wanted. CREEPY!

Dead sun worshipers

I hope they plant a field next year so I can get them in bloom.

Just messin' around

tiny bubbles

"I wish I could go out too"

These photo's are of nothing significant. I was just messing around with shooting RAW images and making adjustments.

Rare Sighting

I almost missed this very rare event. I haven't seen this in a very long time.!! Even the cat was amazed. ;-)

Bare trees

Practicing with the post processing of RAW images.

New guy

We've got a new guy showing up on our deck. We just call him Tomcat. Very friendly. The strays all seem to know where we live. ;-)
Also my first attempt at post processing a RAW image.

We took another road trip on the motorcyle last weekend to Indian Cave. There is still a little color left in the trees. We found one really thorny tree (really big thorns too!) and the lady bugs were everywhere!
