Land of gravel & cattail

It's official and a reality, a couple more gravel pits and Boulder County won't have any more taxable land and bass can't be taxed. They have to keep the fish population up so they can keep the West Nile down. Gawd knows that you can't keep the gravel pit operators down!


Eddie's skies were not terrifically intense so I, in this instance, decided to intensify it in the reflection and capture the backlit cattails in this early autumn. Eddie called me in the morning to tell me he had a vet's appointment for his cat at 11:00 as if I care. I have no idea why he lies to me: I know the vet appointment was for himself! He just stepped outside and then called right back to tell me there were wispy clouds in the sky south toward Frogmont. Now he wants me to do his shooting for him too just because he has an appointment with the vet.


I took my camera down to Largemont's Golden Ponds because it is pretty open and I decided it was closer and cleaner than McIntosh farm. I saw the sky and I figured to make my trip out there pay off and I took pictures in several spots.


No sprinkles from these clouds. Same old, same old, all summer. Well, Eddie was ensconced in his vet's office and I couldn't get Sluggo to activate! This shot was a fairly simply retouch in that most editing was to adjust the tree line.


I created a Photos Set for Clouds and sky (you may find something you need there) but also a group for posting brilliant Clouds & sky photographs. This was hosted at nearly 20meg so it may be usable. Skies are indistinct in fashion anyway. I said I liked expressive skies!
