What’s That…

DSC_0021 (4)bwOh, it’s buffalo.  I know you are shocked.  This is a little later than I prefer, but I’ve been having issues with my laptop holding WIFI connections.  It tends to stop recognizing WIFI all together.  You know, so that’s fun.  I bought a USB adapter thing….hopefully, that will work.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this photo.  I think that I got some amazing shots this trip.  I’m already planning my next camping trip.  This trip might be a mic drop for the year, though.  Cannot wait to share more with you.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Wiley Coyote

DSC_3308c.jpgThis beautiful boy was hunting for his lunch when as I was driving by.  Prairie dogs were the top cuisine for this trip.  Hawks, owls, coyotes ( this was one of two that I saw)…all hunting down prairie dogs for a snack.  Anyway, I couldn’t help but stop.  I had been wanting to see one….with the good lens.   A lens that I knew would get me close enough without scaring him off.  The one I saw the previous trip, he was a far away and my 55-300 just didn’t quite cut it.  My new lens, the big one…amazing.  At least I think it delivered a pretty amazing shot.  Hope you do too.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

The Faces

Of inspiration for the day that I was in Kentucky.  I debated about how to post them.  Maybe I should have saved some of them and posted them separately.  Maybe I should do something else with them.  Maybe I shouldn’t post them at all. I don’t know.  With that said, here they are….my favorites out of the set and the ones that I feel came out best and really represent what I wanted them to represent as well as what I’m capable of doing when I allow myself to be free and just do so.

As you are reading this, I’m well into my day.  Probably procrastinating, because I should be heading back.  I have to be back by tomorrow.  At least by tomorrow afternoon.  However, I’m pretty sure that I’m not ready to give it up yet…and there are still buffalo and mountain goats for me to see.  No reality for me…not today, I’ve got a few more hours to spare.

I hope that you have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Something New….

DSC_6514I took a trip a few weeks ago to Kentucky.  Some friends from Ohio were down visiting there, and asked me if I could come over and meet them.  I didn’t mind the drive.  It’s really just a hop and a skip from where I am.

They were in Louisville, which I’ve never really been a huge fan of driving through; however, the area that they were in wasn’t too bad to get to.  It is kind of an artsy, community type of area.

While we were there, we went to a little bar.  Most of the places down this way seem to be old houses converted.  It kind of inspired me to break out of my shell a bit.

I never just take out my camera and start shooting things, people when I’m in areas like this.  Situations like this, but the people that I was with….they are just artsy an free-spirited.  It was kind of contagious.

I hope that you enjoy the outcomes.  DSC_6513Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Meet me In Montana

DSC_0226So, this was actually in Wyoming.  And it is another throwback.  Not that a throwback was necessary.  I have plenty of pictures, but I get bored and if I get bored….I know you do.

I had pondered taking another trip to the Grand Tetons.  To see parts that I didn’t get to see the last time.   The drive had me apprehensive, because I didn’t want to use up most my vacation in the driving alone. Then there were no campgrounds open near where I wanted to be, so that sealed the deal.  Someday I’ll go back.  For now, I leave you with  this picture from 2015.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
