A moment of light before the sun is gone

Maybe five minutes of this kind of light at the end of an extremely windy day! This is really beautiful and you can see it better by clicking on it for a larger image. I figured out how to upload these photos from Picasa into this template. I have to set it from the left edge. I used to center them, but it doesn't work with photos from this camera.

G. Randall Goss talks about photography

This is the wonderful photographer who chose a picture of mine to be included in the current year's exhibit at the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Petoskey. He has an exhibit, too! You can see two of his photos behind him. This morning he gave an informal talk at the Center; it was wonderful, I wouldn't have missed it for anything!

Last night at sunset

You can just make out our house tucked into the wood's edge.

Burt lake special

Well, the placement of the last post is weird! But here's another duck. Good night.

Another glorious way to fritter away time

I have just spent two and a half hours using the Google Photo thing and editing photos with Piknik from there. I was planning never to use Google photos, being very satisfied with Flickr. But last summer I uploaded several sets of photos by mistake and tonight I found them and began playing with a few. By making huge alterations in exposure and contrast, I found all sorts of lurking beauties, like the lovely subtle colors in this tranquil photo of ducks at rest in the twilight on Burt Lake. I am very happy and will spend some more time here, even though I keep saying I have enough hobbies already.

His yellow eye

This is the male; you can tell by his red moustache. I left both the similiar posts below to remind myself of the vagaries of computing. After I did the first one, I got a message that I could not blog because Java was not enabled on my browser. So I spent a while trying to "enable" it but couldn't figure out how. So I did it over from Flickr--I would like to do it always from Flickr because it connects to the other photos related to the post, but I don't like the smaller size photo I get that way.
I have had endless fun watching these birds--it is making the wintertime quite a delight!

Summer's Lease Hath All Too Short a Date

It will come again. There are so many wonderful blogs that another whine about the cold weather won't be missed, but this just popped up while I was looking for something else in Picasa. The Blues and the Greens, incredible!
