A Jack Russell Terrier to the bone. She enters the barn flat out and searches all her favorite little hidey-holes for vermin. She only found a cat this day...and cats are strictly prohibited.
Although....I'm sure....that she thinks that cats are vermin!

I'm so thankful for clean water....that is easily available. The farmyard is sprinkled with these lovely hydrants....inside buildings, outside buildings, in front of every bow house...and just in seemingly random places.
I don't take our water for granted. I am truly grateful for it everyday and I understand what a difficult existence it would be if it were not so readily available.

Not overly impressed with the amount of grain shooting at ISO 800 or higher. But with out a tripoid shooting at really slow speeds is tough.
I will be happy when this cold is gone. This was a picture from the first day it hit me hard. I could only make it to the front door after dragging myself home from work. So this is the shot you got!

My first attempt at zooming while exposing. Have you ever tried this before? Any tips?
I'm thinking that I need to set the camera on something stationery and maybe slow the shutter speed down a little more. The little squiggles of light are funny looking. Not really sure what to do.
It was very fun to come back and look at these attempts on the computer though. I Can not wait to get out there and try it again.
P.S. Sorry I have not been by your blogs. I have a wretched cold and the computer screen just makes my head and eyes throb. I'll be by soon. I miss everyone!

I took this at Sisterella house. No color enhancement here. This is what the sky looked like. Fall is on it's way for sure. We are having the most spectacular sunsets. Deep purplish pinks, yellow and orange. It's awe inspiring!
P.S. See Hubby....I told you I would get the shot....color and everything!

I did my first photo shoot on Saturday....unpaid of course. But planned and executed. It was fun...really fun! As soon as I get a chance to edit (which could take a little while....due to the fact of my Photoshop Disability) I will post some more. But this photo is a little sneak peek of Susan and Peggy Sue!

Ugh....well Fall is definatley around the bend. The Black Flies are driving the horses NUTS! Someone send 100 gallons of pestcide quick.
Obie has a fly mask....he scratches it off after about an hour or so. Why I don't know....I would think that wearing the darn thing would be more comfortable than getting eatin' up by hordes of black flies that know their time of death is near.

Sisterella was feeling a little bit low regarding the re-homing of Diesel. So I thought it would be nice to have her and the kids over for dinner and a mini photo shoot. And it was going well....it really was.
This was our second location. By the lake. And if she had been in real trouble I would have stopped shooting.....
But she wasn't, just her arms were in the mud... Well that and the hissy fit.
Sisterella was sitting beside me.... She went to the rescue....
I kept shooting. I mean wouldn't you....we got a lot of great images...but these. These images are the ones that 10 years from now will make us laugh and smile!

Sad day for the little camo kitten. She/He was the only kitten to survive kittenhood here at the farm....probable due to the fact that he blends in to everywhere. Anyway Mama cat declared her independence and that was it. Milk supply cut off....weaned the hard way.
He was absolutely pathetic for about 3 days. Sitting out in front of the barn crying and looking just terrible. I tried to catch him a couple times so that I could show him to the feed. But he was to quick. One of the other strays took charge of the situation though....he was in the barn eating at tonight.
