POTD: Front and Center #2

Front and Center #2 Bozeman, Montana 2012

Another example of “semi-symmetree” in an image, and a counterpoint to the POTD from four days ago.]]>

POTD: The Warmth of Your Embrace

The Warmth of Your Embrace Bozeman, Montana 2012

O.K. maybe it doesn’t look all that warm, but it definitely looks like the aspen tree is comfortably nestled in the embrace of the fir tree surrounding it.]]>

POTD: Black Lightning

Black Lightning Bozeman, Montana 2012

After yesterday’s post I got thinking the name white lighting is kind of redundant. Isn’t white, blinding white in fact, the default color of lightning? Now black lighting, that’s something entirely different.]]>

POTD: No Matter What

No Matter What Bozeman, Montana 2012

I enjoy going out in the cold and snow with my camera. The weather is invigorating, the beauty of new snow enchanting, and the possibility of some special images intriguing. Some dog owners might appreciate such outings as well, but it makes no difference whether they do or not, as it’s going to happen no matter what. When you gotta go, you gotta go.]]>

POTD: Front and Center

Front and Center Bozeman, Montana 2012

I almost called this one “semi-symmetree” but,  thinking I ought to take the photo a little more serious than that, couldn’t quite bring myself to that level of “punditry.”]]>

What's it mean to be a photographer?

The Online Photographer web site quite enlightening. I find it very consistent with my thinking and a heck of a lot more articulate than what I’ve ever come up with. Highly recommended reading if such things are of interest to you as well.]]>

POTD: Heated Walk

Heated Walk Bozeman, Montana 2012

With the ground surface just above freezing but the air below freezing, Mother Nature provides a clear path through the snow.]]>

POTD: Five O'Clock Shadow #2

Five O’Clock Shadow Bozeman, Montana 2012

Happy Thanksgiving! Among any number of other things I’m lucky to have (e.g. a revitalized heart, clearer vision, and the Fashion Queen), I’m also thankful for all my loyal POTD readers who give me great motivation to keep working at my photography every day. I took this photo last night during what so far this year is a rare winter snowfall. (It’s kind of odd to just have a skiff of snow on the ground this late in November around here.) It isn’t a part of a series of images like the ones with numbered titles usually are. It’s just that I realized that I had used this title before in this post from 2011. Except in the case of a planned series, I try and think of unique names for each post. But after 8+ years of POTDs it may be I’m running out of original thoughts.  ]]>
