Our today's tour promised to be a long one, so we had to start before dawn in order to manage. Once dawn started, the icy road became the star of the show ;)

Today I got up very early to catch this beautiful sunrise at the edge of a village.

 

The original photo is not edited or changed in any way. The only thing I did was adding the border.

 

Have a good weekend, my friends!!!

2 months ago today, I finished work early so I could go visit my dad in hospital, little did I know at the time that it would be the last time I would see him alive. I am grateful I got to see him for at least half an hour before things took a turn for the worse. We waited a long 9 hours by his bed side for his body to give up and I can honestly say those were the most painful hours I have ever experienced in my whole life, and I really hope I never have to go through that again. The silence that filled his room the moment he stopped breathing was chilling, we were part relieved that he was in peace but mostly we were absolutely devastated that this was the end and we would never see or speak to him again.....

 

I had the greatest honor of delivering his eulogy at the funeral and I read out a poem at the end which I hoped would bring peace not only to us as his family but to his many friends and colleagues who were just as shocked at his departure and tonight it brings me peace so I would like to share it with you all too:

 

You can shed tears

that he is gone.

Or you can smile because he lived.

You can close your eyes and

pray that he will come back.

Or you can open your eyes and

see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty because

you can't see him.

Or you can be full of the love

that you shared,

You can turn your back on

tomorrow and live for yesterday,

Or you can be happy for tomorrow

because of yesterday.

You can remember him and

only that he is gone.

Or you can cherish his

memory and let it live on,

You can cry, close your mind,

be empty, and turn your back.

Or you can do what he would

have wanted, smile, open your

eyes, love and move on.

 

Just kind of relaxing today watching the sun go in and out of the clouds so i decided to relive some old memories and go back through the archives. I am not really sure how I missed this one before...

Today reminded me of the early months of the 365 and the finger numbing cold of trying to take photos in sub zero temperatures!

Today early morning while i was traveling to Anuradhapura i went Kalpitiya Lagoon, and could capture this shot. All are busy with their meal and its great view.

Seen in Explore.

 

Popped out early this morning for this, the scene is not yet lit by direct sunlight allowing a fairly dark sky to seem bright in comparison. The dark under the tree is not shadow but a lack of wheat that close to it. Second "yellow" themed landscape today, though this is more of a golden brown, hey, close enough.

 

At Michaelstone-y-Fedw between Cardiff and Newport.

Early Morning Sunrise over Smith Rock State Park.

it was amazing to watch the light change as the sun came up behind me.....I waited patiently until the light went flat....I have lots of shots where the shadow of the horizon is on these rocks about half way down!

 

I had quite an adventure over the last 2 days and today I was rained out.....

 

Hope you are all having a great weekend

Earlier today I had a chance to explore the Thames Tunnel - an underwater tunnel beneath the River Thames, built between 1825 and 1843. It measures 11m wide by 6m high and is about 400m long. It was the first tunnel known to have been constructed successfully underneath a navigable river. It was used by pedestrians until it became part of the London Overground railway network. The Thames Tunnel is not usually open to the public, this weekend being an exception.

HAPPY FIVE YEARS OF DAILY PAINTING AND BLOGGING!!!

 

Today marks the fifth year of my daily painting -- five years!!! Blows me away too ... ! Though I could not post daily due to trips out of the country or internet access, I have painted something -- very often not masterpieces!!! LOL - every day. WHEW!

 

Folks often ask me how I manage to paint every day -- and the truth is - YOU do. Your constant, considerate, generous comments have kept me going day after day, year after year. Your kind encouragement has kept me on the journey -- and I sincerely, deeply, humbly -- THANK YOU!

 

HERE'S TO THE NEXT FIVE!

Earlier today, while my wife and I were wandering around the city, I took this photo along Circus Lane, in the Stockbridge district of Edinburgh, Scotland.

Early morning from the lookout. It's been pouring down today since this photo was taken, must be Wellington seeing off the royals today...

Early start today...so early post :) Hope you had a wonderful weekend xxx

Stepped outside to snap our neighbour's oak before sunrise. No saturation whatsoever, almost had to desat., lol

Same tree in autumn colors:

Earlier today I posted the pretty clear water from Bowman Lake in Glacier National Park. Here the fresh water from Crater Lake is in that same category. Water here is from rain and snow that falls in the Crater.

 

Hence the fine blue colors from the high altitude sky falling down on the supreme clear water.

The Cherry Blossom Festival officially kicks off tomorrow, but some of the blossoms decided to bloom a bit early. The water was very high today in the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. Maybe extra water for the trees will bring brighter blooms!

Empty road. Yes, I took this whilst driving earlier today. I survived 

Today it was a misty Morning with Low wet cloud's,a perfect day for a walk along the River front.

There is a very strong cold wind howling past my windows today, and yesterday I was shivering out in the rain, so this green scene from warmer days in September looked pretty good to me. Hope you all had a nice Halloween and All Saints Day.

Today, I woke up early to wash some clothes. The sky is so clear and blue despite rainy season. Such a lovely day!

I decided, earlier today, to explore a cave (alone this time) where it was rumored a black mage was practicing necromancy. After disposing of a few animated skeletons, I, unseen, crept into the room where he was practicing his dark arts. From a distance, I shot him with an arrow. The arrow, as it turns out was only a poorly made iron arrow and the shot was sloppy... too much time in a pub the night before. The mage fell to the floor but was only wounded, He was reaching upward toward an enhanced magical dagger when I put a second arrow, better placed, into his skull... a clean kill. What you see here is his last attempt to reach that dagger. Now the villagers of the surrounding towns may rest a bit easier.

Early start today! It was seriously cold, a real biting easterly wind.

Early morning at the bridge over the River Eden at Lazonby. I had a feeling that this morning might be a good sunrise when i noticed the weather forecast gave a window of good weather between the rain during the night and the rain expected today.I arrived at Lazonby just as the sky went, it lasted for a few mins but i wasn't able to catch it in time..bah. I decided to have a wander around the bridge and found this comp and just waited for the sun to rise to a point where it would highlight the bridge and fence line in the foreground..i think it works.

I got up way to early today to get some things done and then decided to go check out the bridge in the fog... I learned that these types of shots are better done after the sun comes up because the fog really does not show up too well in the image...

Also while viewing my other contacts images this morning I noticed many others were out and about in the fog too!!!

Back in the early to mid 1900's progressive grain farms built this style of corncrib.This "thin" design was more efficient to store and handle corn picked on the cob.Later when threshers and combines began shelling the grain,these cribs became obsolete and because of their narrow design,hard to adapt for other uses such as machine storage.We had 2 on our farm back in the early '60s-they were taken down shortly after and replaced by more efficient,but much less interesting,round metal grain bins(there's one in the background here) that dot the rural landscape today...and sure enough this relic was full of corn cobs....

 

Efficiency doesn't always have the same character....

 

Have a great Sliders Sunday everyone!

I was really early up today, so I thought I might go out and get some captures, as this is the first weekend back in my hometown.

 

I drove to a famous spot, not far from where I live, and took this misty sunrise.

 

5 standard RAW exposures hdr

Taken earlier today.. on some sort of yellow flower.. I think its a yarrow.. it was munching away at the tiny inflorescences which form a flat surface for it to move on..

Sometimes all the elements come together nicely if you get up early enough in Jackson Hole....

 

I'm taking another small group of photographers back in mid-July for wildflower season in the Tetons. If you'd be interested in joining us, just drop me a note.

God bless you.

Earlier today, while I was on my way to meet my friend Michael at Caffe Artigiano on Robson Street, I took this photo of some leaves that had fallen on this rock garden in front of some house on Haro Street in the West End of Downtown Vancouver.
