LAZY DAY OFF

With my computer offline I have not been inspired to go out with my camera until this morning.  I drove to the pond immediately after dropping my daughter off at school.  I went straight to the grove where the whitetails bed down but they were nowhere to be seen.  In fact, with the exception of a couple of squirrels and a few birds, there was little sight of any wildlife at all.  My disappointment was short-lived though.  I love being out in the wild as the world is waking up.

I never get tired of the view of Pikes Peak, as you may have noticed by now. Ironically, for as much as I love the mountain, I have only actually been to the top a few times because of my extreme fear of heights.  Now I will only visit the summit if someone else drives for me, the road is too winding, narrow and close to the edge of the mountain for my comfort.

I love how the bullrushes are backlit in that top picture. Backlighting is one of my favourite photographic techniques.

I see now how you got top blogger, your entries are stunning. If it's OK I,ll try to use your blog as a pattern to follow and try to improve my presentation along your lines. I like Pike's Peak too; I'll show you Moel Famau and Snowdon one day when I get my act together.

Amazing that the reflection effect captures the mountain as it is so far away.     It must be hard on the vehicle to get up and down the peak.   Stunning photograph!    mark
