It’s become a tradition to have  Thanksgiving with my wife’s family at their ranch.  It’s a lot of fun and great food.  Basically everything Thanksgiving is supposed to be.  Conditions haven’t been great for grabbing photos but I did catch this one which I really liked.  This one taken looking north late in the afternoon across a pond that’s on the ranch.  I did a little bit of post processing, but not much.  This was shot at ISO 200 1/200 second at f9.0. I used my 18-135mm lens set at 35mm.

Thankful for the beauty that surrounds me every day.

Fall Color this year is different than the last couple of years.  I got some great pictures of fall as my sister Marcie and I paddled down Henry’s Fork of the Snake River, the very last day of September.  There wasn’t another person any where!  It was awesome as we practiced our silent paddling down the river trying not to disturb anything that might be in, on or close to the river.  We were rewarded for our efforts and I’ll share those shortly.  Today I’m just going to share a couple of shots of the river which includes a couple of panoramas.  I was a little nervous taking my camera down the river in a canoe, but all went well, as you can see.  The panoramas were done hand held.  For some strange reason I didn’t take my tripod.  Oh, yea I remember!  How’s a tripod going to work in a canoe?

Last week I spent some time in a part of the country I’ve never been to.  Little Rock Arkansas is an interesting little town.  I was there for a class and the requirements were such that I didn’t get a lot of time for getting exploring or taking pictures.  I did manage to get out for an hour or so a couple of evenings.  I’ll share what I captured here over the next couple of days.  I walked right past the Clinton Presidential Library and didn’t get one picture.  I scouted pictures but never got back to take any.  I did get pictures of and from the Presidential Bridge.  The bridge is an old rail road bridge that crosses the Arkansas River and has been fixed up and made into a nice pedestrian bridge.  I’ll share those first.
