Beth Akerman1What are leaf portraits?  Well they are getting up close to a leaf or a group of leaves and seeing the details and characteristics of them, and presenting them in some artistic sort of way, either through photography or artwork, such as drawings, paintings, prints, digital art, etc.  So show us your Leaf Portraits, Fall or not.  Up to 3 uploads per person.  Feel free to invite others and comment and plus each others submissions.  This is just for fun.  Let's See Some Leaf Portraits2013-10-24 15:00:0042

You can share two shots this time. *Please remember just two images!* 1) Your best or most favorite shot you took in the fourth quarter of 2012 (October- December). Add #Bestof4Q12Creative366  in the comment section after you post the image! 2) Your best or most favorite shot you took for the project this year. Add #BestofCreative366Project  in the comment section after you post the image! If you think those two tags are too complicated, forget them and just two of your images! But please add your comment in the comment section after you have posted them. *And if you are the one who failed to complete the mission and are thinking you are going to do it again next year, you can add your fav one you took for the project here!* One last thing: I have made this event "public." I might have missed inviting those who are participating this +Creative 366 Project, so if you know anyone who isn't here but is doing his/her project, please invite them! 366プロジェクトもあと数日で終わりです。うれしいですか。それとも、悲しい? どちらにしても、長かったミッションの終わりを皆で祝いましょう! 今回は写真を2枚シェアしてください。 *2枚だけです!* 1.10月~12月にプロジェクト用に撮った写真から、お気に入りの写真かベストの写真を1枚選んで投稿してください。 #Bestof4Q12Creative366  のタグを投稿後にコメント欄に入れてください。 2.プロジェクトのために撮った写真から、今年のベスト(もしくはお気に入り)! の写真を1枚選んで投稿して下さい。  #BestofCreative366Project  をタグとします。 タグが面倒なら、ただ2枚を選んで投稿してくださるだけで結構です。写真のコメント欄に、その写真の思い出などを書き添えていただけるとうれしいです。 そして、このプロジェクトに参加したのに途中で挫折した!来年こそは!という方も、ぜひこのイベントにご参加ください。挫折するまでに撮った写真をシェアしていただければ結構です。もちろん、来年への抱負も添えてくださいね!The Best of Your 3662012-12-30 16:00:0084

Hi all and Happy Saturday! I went out to the Geary State Lake near me and shot the sunset, something I hadn't done in a while. With the clouds we had in the sky from a recent rain I thought I had a chance to get a good one and was not disappointed. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Happy Hump Day! Gads summer is going quickly. I missed playing to the Join Daily Butterfly theme and I hadn't shared one for a long time so here you go. This is a Paper Kite on some Penta flowers I believe. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all! Here is another Chippy image for +Heidi Anne Morris and #ANIMALweek . This is one of the Chipmunks that greeted our Durango & Silverton train at one of our stops along the way. They were all looking for a handout I am sure. You really shouldn't feed wild animals, it can put them in danger they should not be in normally. I can understand why people do, how can you resist this face. :-) Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all, Happy Hump Day! Mine is not starting off well, I think we just lost 3 major pieces of electronic entertainment equipment due to a lightning strike that woke us up it was so loud. Sigh. Anyway, my image today is for +Heidi Anne Morris 's event of #ANIMALweek . This is another lizard I captured at the Grand Canyon and one that must be more common because it's picture was up in the buses IDing it. This is a Desert Spiny Lizard, most likely female. I captured this one on our last day at the South Rim. Hope you enjoy it and have a good day.

Hi all, along with Animal Week it is National Moth Week supposedly worldwide. This is a neat one I found in my yard earlier this year. I thought it was a more rare one and submitted it to a moth site, turns out it it is common as it's name, Scopula Ordinata, shows. :-) It is still and interesting one and hope you enjoy the image. A shout out to +Annie Irving who wanted to know when I posted a moth image.

Hi all and happy Monday! We are off on a new week and mine isn't starting off the best so hope it improves as the week goes along. My image today is for +Heidi Anne Morris and her event of #animalweek . While riding the Durango & Silverton Railway at one point along the ride this girl and her horse rode alongside the train. Everyone was enjoying her seeming to race the train on this beautiful horse. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, it's another #SteamySunday and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your shots of ANYTHING steam, mist, fog related. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them. Let's see those steamy shots!
My image today is once again in the style of my favorite photographer of the Denver & Rio Grande Railway, William Henry Jackson. I took this shot from the train while riding, I sit near the back for opportunities such as this and since the train can only go 5 miles an hour in this area called the High Line of the Durango & Slverton Railway it was a good place. Over on my Blog here: http://www.alittleplaceontheweb.com/ I have WHJ's original photo to show what I was going for and a bit more detail if you care to check it out. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello and happy Saturday! +Heidi Anne Morris is hosting #AnimalWeek and so this is an image for it. Reptiles are animals too so this is one I captured at the Grand Canyon on one of my hikes there. This is a Plateau Fence Lizard I believe, most likely female. It was not too fond of having it's photo taken but paused long enough a couple of times for me to get a few shots. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, it's Friday! It's going to be a boiling hot one for me, 102F actual at least here today. It's National Dragonfly Week in the UK so a shout out to +Annie Irving but I wanted to share this image with all my fellow #Bokeholics because #FridaysAreBokehlicious as well! This is a young Twelve Spot with some creamy leaf bokeh behind that I hope you will enjoy. Have a great day and a great start to your weekend and stay cool!

Hi all, happy Tuesday! This is for #JoinDaily #JoinInDaily curated by +Johnny Wills (feel better soon) and his theme of Cute or Adorable. This is one of the Chipmunks that was playing along the side of the tracks during one of our water/passenger stops on the Durango & Silverton Railway. I am sure he was looking for food from someone on the train but at the moment he is eating a piece of plant he found. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi, it's Monday and the start of another boiling hot week. Sigh My image today is for #NewBirdPoker curated this week by +Asani Bhaduri with the theme of Portrait. Hopefully a full body one is OK as I can't get as close as most of the birders here. I was pretty happy with this shot of a Barred Owl sitting in a friend of mine's tree. So not my backyard as my Collection says but her front yard. LOL She is so lucky to be able to see these guys all the time. They nest in the woods by her home and visit her yard regularly. I am quite jealous. :-) Hope you enjoy it and have a great start to your week.

Hi, it's #SteamySunday and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see those steamy shots of yours! We like ANYTHING steam, fog, mist related, not just trains. Please tag both of us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them. Let's see your steamy shots today!
So a couple of Sundays ago I spent the day doing something steam related and rode the Durango and Silverton Railway in southwestern Colorado. I've got all kinds of shots in different places so I could do 52 weeks of this railroad, you may get bored. LOL This is our locomotive pulling out in the morning to get hooked to our train at Durnago to pull us to Silverton and back. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Yay, it's Friday and I am going to play to 2 themes today. This is for #NewBirdPoker curated this week by +Jim Robertson with his theme of LBJ . This is a Little Blue Job I captured sitting on my railroad crossing sign that is in some bad need of restoration I see, in my backyard. I am pretty sure it's a young Bluebird. He has some nice creamy tree bokeh behind him for my fellow #bokeholics because #FridaysAreBokehlicious ! Hope you all enjoy the image and have a great start to your weekend!

#TreeTuesday curated by +Ralph Mendoza and +David R Robinson . This is a tree I had photographed on my first trip to the Grand Canyon and captured again last week. I love the bend in it, as if it's bowing. It also appears to me as if it has a face. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, this is for #NewBirdPoker curated this week by +Jim Robertson with his theme of Unknowns. This is a bird I Captured at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon last week. It's a Black/White/Orange job that looks like a type of Grosbeak? Hoping for an ID. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hey hey, it's #SteamySunday and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your images of ANYTHING steam, fog mist related you like. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them and let's see those steamy shots!
Last weekend I was in Colorado doing steamy things like photographing and riding the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.There had been a photograph I had wanted to attempt that was similar to a photo by William Henry Jackson's from back in the late 1800s. I have more info on my Blog here:
http://www.alittleplaceontheweb.com/ along with a shot of his original photograph if you care to check it out. Anyway, this is the D&S Rwy on the High Line over the Animas River with a bit of toning. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all, I am back! I was just on a week trip to Colorado and Arizona. Today's image is a 3 shot panorama that I took out in Monument Valley. I was glad to have brought my polarizer along as the sky was somewhat hazy the whole trip due to the fires in southern Arizona i believe. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! Best viewed large of course. :-) Hope to start catching up with you all soon.

My image for today is of my neighbor's Day Lily.  It was a nice bright reddish orange color that reminded me of a flame.  Since Fridays are for bokeh, it has a bit of house siding bokeh.  😉 #FridaysAreBokehlicious

This is an image I was able to get a while back of a Bumble Bee enjoy the Butterfly Milkweed.  It was just about to land on this bloom when I captured it.

I captured this image in Minnesota a couple of weeks ago now.  I had never seen this behavior for a Redwing Blackbird.  It was hoping around on Lily pads and sticking it's beak into the flowers.  I'm not sure of it was trying to eat the flowers or if there ...

Hi all! Happy Monday! This is a Ladybug I captured recently that looked like it was going after some lunch. Or else it was a standoff. Either way, I thought it made for a good subject. There used to be a #MacroMonday , not sure if that theme still exists but anyway, wanted to share this today. Hope you enjoy it and have a good day! It's still going to be a while before I can catch up but I will. :-)

Hi all, I'm posting late but it's still #SteamySunday and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I still want to see your shots of ANYTHING steam related you like. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them. It's not too late, let's see your steamy shots!
My image is of some Live Steam G Scale Garden Railway fun. This is my Shay locomotive on it's way past a very cool scratch built coaling tower modeled after one like the Cumbres & Toltec has in Chama, NM. This cool tower also appears in a video I shot of my C-21 locomotive running past it over on Youtube. It accidentally got posted last week so I won't Spam the stream with it again. Here is the link if you want to check it out: https://youtu.be/WrMf8inrSkc
Hope you enjoy the image and are having a great day! I will catch up with you someday soon.

Hi all, checking in very late for #JoinInDaily #JoinDaily curated by +Johnny Wills and his theme today is Falling Water. This is the waterfall in Kansas near where I live in a regular exposure image instead of my usual long exposure. Still really amazes me that we have something so close like this in a place everyone thinks is flat but is not. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Well, #FridaysAreBokehlicious is here! This is a 3 stack macro of some Sedum that is growing by the steps of my deck. The bokeh is provided by the rock on the ground below it. Hope all my fellow #bokeholics and everyone else enjoys it and has a great day and great start to your weekend. Beginning today my contact on here will be quite sporadic for a week. I will catch up with you all after that! Have a great 4th! :-)

Lunchtime For Dragons

Hello all, it's Thursday and almost the weekend! Yay We got rain this morning which made it even better since it's been horribly dry and hot here. The ground had cracks in it almost an inch wide in some spots. I captured this image in Minnesota a couple weeks ago now. I thought it was cool but it also made me sad when I saw it was a Ladybug it had for lunch. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi all, happy Hump Day! I am playing to two themes again today. First is #NewBirdPoker curated by +Ramprakash Ram Mohan with his theme of On the beach or in the water and then also #WaterbirdWednesday +Water Bird Wednesday curated by +Margaret Tompkins . When I was in Minnesota 2 weeks ago today, I was able to see and capture the best Loon images I have ever gotten. This was in the evening as I was headed out to dinner. A lone Loon was on one of the many ponds and fairly close. They are the Minnesota state bird. I hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi and happy Tuesday! Today's image is for a theme I haven't played in for a while, #GrassTuesday +Grass Tuesday curated by +Margaret Tompkins . When they completed the roadwork on my street they planted wheat, I guess because it grows fast and would help stop erosion. It is making for some lovely photos so even though a bit weird, OK with me. This is some that was growing at the end of our driveway captured in afternoon sun. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi, it's #SteamySunday and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your images of ANYTHING steam, mist fog, etc. related you like. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them and let's see your steamy shots!
My image goes back a while to Michigan and a Steam Fest that was held there where I got to see and ride behind the gorgeous Southern Pacific Daylight locomotive. It's a GS-4 locomotive which is a streamlined 4-8-4 and was built by Lima Locomotive Works in 1941. It's the last surviving GS-4. The colors of it and it's matching color passenger cars made for a lovely sight. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Happy Saturday! This is for #NewBirdPoker which is curated by +John Wade this week and his theme is Linking to. I am linking to his photo of Goslings with mine that I captured a couple of days ago. I was able to view a large group of Geese families on a pond here in Minnesota and this is a shot of 2 of them. I had never seen so many families at one time, there were at least 8 and maybe 10. Usually I never see any birds on this particular pond at all. Hope you enjoy them and have a great day!

For #NewBirdPoker curated this week by +John Wade with his theme of Domino Effect. He said we could link in a "Bizarre way" so here you go. This is a Magpie I captured in Scottsbluff a while back. I always liked this shot but had never shared it for some reason. I thought the shape of this bird and what it was standing on reminded me of John's shot of the Wagtail standing on a rock. Good enough? :-) Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello and happy Tuesday! This is getaway day for me later so I will probably only be around sporadically over the next few days, unless it rains. I captured this guy, a bull frog I think, on the shore of the same pond as the Damsels from yesterday's shot came from. He was huge! If I had held him he would have taken up my whole hand. He didn't like me getting to close so I was glad when he posed a bit. I took this up on the bridge from Sunday's image. Hope you enjoy him and have a great day!

Happy Monday! For #JoinInDaily #JoinDaily curated by +Johnny Wills with today's theme of Five. I had this photo more for the bokeh that the other Damselflies produced but this fit the theme so here are 5 Blue Damsels and 1 reflected in a pond from a week ago. :-) Hope you enjoy the image and have a great start to your week!

Hi all, it's #steamySunday ! Co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your images of ANYTHING steam, mist fog, related we enjoy it all. Please mention us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them. Let's see those steamy shots!
My image was taken last weekend at the 12 inch scale railroad I get to go play at. This is my favorite locomotive to run there being operated by another train enthusiast and engineer for them as he was on the main bridge of the setup. The pond was really full due to all the rain we had been getting and made for a nice shot. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello and happy Saturday! This image is for #JoinDaily #JoinInDaily curated by +Johnny Wills with the theme today of Goes On and On. This is a view of Konza Prairie looking east in the setting sun a week ago Friday. As the title of my Collection says, My Kansas is not Just Flat, because I live in the beautiful Flint Hills area. This particular area in the image is part of where the Bison herd is kept but unfortunately, they were not in sight this evening. The trails you can see through the tall grass are made by the Bison which, unlike cattle, travel mostly in single file and create these trails. This is a 2 shot panorama image.
Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!
