I am so pleased with my tomato plants, so far...  they have a lot of "personality."

My hands sure have taken a beating over the years...

I love how both of the dogs are standing the same way and facing the same direction. Plus, taking photos like this while on skiis is a good way to crash, so I think this photo deserves some credit! :-)

I was walking the dogs today and saw this old truck buried in the snow. I really liked the colors of blue and rust and the red chain, and especially the way the parking light shines with the blue hue.

Our little orphan moose came into our yard this morning, had some food and took a nap.

An old photo of fish camp... I got some photos of our skijoring trip yesterday, but there was nothing special.

March 10, 2010

So many good photos from our ride up into the mountains, but I can only choose one! I picked this one because when I shifted it from color to black and white, the trees really stood out. It also toned down the brightness of the snow.

Ok, one more...

I'm not usually one for human portraiture, but I liked this one of Randy, with the snow falling around him.

I have been taking photos of cans that I find in the snow, in hopes that I will have enough to make a collage, in the future.

My newly repotted wheatgrass, soaking up the sun.

This is a photo from our trip to Sedona, Arizona, one of the "energy spots" on the earth. The red rocks and clear blue sky were spectacular.

A friend's dachshund, Taylor. I love how she is holding that big tennis ball and the kitchen towers around her, but she still portrays a big personality to the camera.

Went over to Knik and took some photos of the Chugach. This photo searching adventure was a good cure for cabin fever...

Chuck and Crosby, waiting patiently to go for a ride.

A black and white of one of the dog's footprints, melted into the ice on the deck.

I am normally not for altering photos with extreme editing, but this was a good exercise in using the program. I took a very plain scene and graduated the tint from the top of the photo, and also colorized the sky. I like the outcome and this turned a very bland photo into something more eyecatching.

I do still have moral issues with severely editing photos, but practicing with the editing tools is useful for any photographer.

I did take some shots today, but wasn't pleased with any of the results. I need to work on low light shooting more to get anything worth putting on here, so I figured today would be a good day to post my favorite photo.

This is a shot of my sled dogs when we lived up on Godwin Glacier, above Seward, Alaska. The only way to get up there was by helicopter, and it was an awesome experience.

This photo is definately worth clicking on, to see enlarged.

I took this photo of Chuck while working on shooting from low angles. This method really agreed with the midday lighting and I really like how a soft focus draws the attention to his eyes.

I am shocked at how much this photo looks like a painting. The only editing I did was to manipulate the soft focus.

A photo of a jet contrail that I turned to black and white using Picassa.

My Rubber Plant seemed pleased to be repotted today!

A silly picture of Chuck.
