OK, so I’m gonna cheat a little this time. I wanted to put up a post for Camera Critters and one for Photo Friday. When I checked to see what the challenge word was this week for Photo Friday, I saw that it was “Flight”. This is perfect because I happen to have a picture of my dog, Axl, flying through the air. My daughter and I took him down to the lake last summer, and I stood in the water as far as I could without getting my shorts wet and she threw the ball for him. I was able to get this shot of him “flying”.
This is an old barn on County Line Road in Armstrong Creek, WI. It’s not as old as some of the other “vintage” barns in the area, but I wanted to share it anyway. This barn’s silhouette is featured in so many of my sunset shots, because County Line Road is where I go to take sunset pics. I have an excellent eastern view from my house, but nothing to the west, hence the need to take a quick road trip anytime the western sky looks inviting. The man who owned this farm has been gone for a few years now, and the property is now owned by a family from out of town who use it as a weekend place.
The prompt this week at http://www.photofriday.com is “The Great Outdoors”, so I chose this shot taken at Big Bull Falls last summer. It’s one of my favorite places to go. It’s beautiful there and very few people know about it. Whenever I go I almost always have the place to myself. I haven’t been there in quite awhile, and now that I’m thinking about it, I think maybe I’ll take a ride out there this weekend.
The prompt this week at http://www.photofriday.com is “movement”, so I chose these pics that I took of our Christmas tree in 2006. I had the camera set on a manual setting and when I snapped the picture I moved the camera around while the shutter was open, which created these colorful “trails” of light. No flash was used, of course.
