A movie that marked my youth...lol..lol...

 

Mom was a huge Doris Day fan.....we were forced to watch.... I'm okay with it now.

 

Daisies are my favorite flowers.....

The property joining this potting shed used to be a Weslyen Chapel . It was demolished some years ago and a house built on the land .The graveyard is still there , so the home owner shares his potting shed with long departed souls for company .

The inscription on the gravestone reads ...

In memory of William Horsfall of Marsden, who died in the 5th year of his age.

Also Thomas the son of Johnathon and Abigail Horsfall of Marsden, who died February 3rd 1854 in the 18th year of his age ...so sad .

 

Little and great Marsden being a former name of

Nelson .

The property is in Trawden or Trawden Forest to use the full title . Lancashire

Fokelore has it that you would find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.....so far I've only noticed it as a reward for enduring the stormy weather that precedes it.

Now where is that pot o gold...?

This is a 3 photo stitch from a P&S camera so not the quality I would like - too much noise. The sun was really lifting the colours. A short moment later it was gone....You can see a second rainbow for much of the bow.

After going out this afternoon to get a shot I have wanted for a while but the tide not being right a decided to play with a lobster pot instead

I've been away for almost a month, and I'm still pretty busy at work, but I sure did miss you all!! I just had to post one, just to see if I remembered how :)

 

I hope you all have a great weekend, and I'll try to do a little catching up next week.

 

This shot is for my dear friend, Vesna, whose texture work and still life images have always delighted me! Check out her stream.....it Rocks!!

PETRIFIED in putrefaction: "It is the French name for a Spanish stew with a wide variety of ingredients called "olla podrida, specialty of the town of Burgos. The word was taken and copied by the French military during the Napoleonic occupation of Burgos (1808-1813)." Literally, however, the word "pot" in French has the same meaning as it does in Spanish and English, while the word "pourri" means rotten. In English, "potpourri" is often used to refer to any collection of miscellaneous or diverse items.

In early 17th Century France fresh herbs and flowers were gathered—starting in spring and continuing throughout the summer. The herbs were left for a day or two to become limp, then layered with coarse sea salt. The aging mixture was stirred occasionally as layers were added to it. Often the mixture would ferment or even mold as the summer went by. In fall, spices would be added to the unsightly grey mix until a pleasant fragrance was achieved, then scent preserving fixatives (see below) were added. The finished potpourri was set out in special pots with perforated lids to perfume rooms. Modern homes avoid having pots of moldly substances laying about, and potpourri is usually purchased in stores." (in Wikipedia)

I suppose photography is largely about luck and being in the right place at the right time, but moments like this don't come along that often so it was awesome to be there. After a massive down pour where I got soaked, a brief break of light produced this wonderful scene and after about 30 seconds it was gone.

Finally managed to get out with the camera today, had a good day out with Simon not sunny but great for long exposures.

First in a series of shots taken at a recent protest in front of City Hall. The demonstrators were protesting about the closure of, thus far, illegal pot dispensaries. The crowd was readily sharing their medicine. Rarely have I seen such a calm protest :) Shot on an Olympus OM!, using try-x 400. 1/125 at F8. Stand developed for one hour in Blazinal.

I definitely found my pot of gold at Glacier National Park this past year. This particular photo was taken just before 7 a.m. on the day after my "Magic in Many Glacier" was shot. The storm clouds and sprinkles of rain kept sweeping over and intermittently there would be a rainbow stretching from Swiftcurrent Lake to the hills where the Grizzlies, Big Horns and Mountain Goats like to hang out. The sun would light up portions of the world that I was so lucky to be a part of for a moment. Glacier is there for all who seek it and I plan to spend much more time exploring this wondrous creation of nature.

 

I am so thankful for the opportunities that took me to five national parks this past summer and that will take me back to Mt. Rainier one more time before 2011 rings in. That mountain covered in snow, can you imagine?

 

Hit L to view large, you won't be disappointed.

 

Thanks for looking.

With two giant pandas in residence at the Adelaide Zoo, bamboo is everywhere including this potted specimen, as the pandas eat an awful lot of bamboo.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

 

I found the Pot of Gold in Glacier's Two Medicine. Ihis favorite bench does have a million dollar view. What a stormy, colorful morning it was.

 

Have a lucky Friday and weekend!

It looked as if Creation Falls was flowing into a pot of gold last July.

Taken a little while ago at Biddulph Grange, Staffordshire, I loved how these chimney pots seemed to be reaching for the sky!
