Feeling Like You're in the Rapids

I love how images can make you feel like you're there.
In this case paddling along the river.

But guess what folks this is no "lazy river"...

So it's time to get into gear and paddle like crazy.....

so that you'll reach that calm water down stream.

Be sure to enjoy the ride!

In the True Spirit of Christmas

It seems that everywhere we turn
our senses are barraged with Black Friday....Cyber Monday....etcetera.

This year as we approach the holiday season I remind us all that we can look to Mr. and Mrs. Claus to realize that truly the best gift of all is when we find ways to give of ourselves not only during the Holiday Season but all year through.

Think of all the joy we can bring!

Take on the Challenge as There is Always Something New to Learn

I've posted a few of my "flight" images over the past couple of months so bear with me while I talk about another image. When it was time to review the images we all agreed that we liked this sunburst image but Phil's biplane was no where in sight.

I recently had a large group portrait where one lad was holding a football in his lap. Unbeknownst to me he tossed that football up in the air at one critical point - when I was taking "the favorite" shot of a group of 43 people.

So I got the idea of trying to do a composite image - where I could take one of his good frames and put it in the place of his "football face". It came out nicely and so long story short I got the idea to revisit my flight images and see if I had a biplane image that I thought could work. Keeping in mind the direction of the sun on the plane I found one image that I felt had some possibility.

And voila....

The sky is the limit.
