Here are the photos that have been sent in recently to be shared. Enjoy.
The best sunsets occur right over the golf course by Kati's house. Makes me homesick!
Tom and I were just driving down the road this morning checking on fall color development. We turned down a dirt road and found that we were on Double Bridge Loop, a road that crosses the South Sylamore Creek twice. We stopped at one bridge and this looked almost fall-like on an overcast day. ISO 200, f/8, 1/25 sec, 55mm on a Nikon D810 with a Tamron 24-70mm lens.
Cory sent this note with the image. "Mount Hood Railroad, Hood River Oregon. The best part of this train ride was when the conductor announced that the train was going to stop and all who were interested could de-train and he was going to back the train up and come around the bend for a nice photo! Shooting into the sun isn't my favorite but who would turn down the opportunity? Not this gal!"

The conversation starts with me turning my computer to show him a photograph. Or, he turns his computer. "What do you think?" He looks it over carefully. "I have one that is wider." He fetches his from the collection of 5,000+ five starred images. Yep. His is wider. "Plus," he adds' "I have a guy walking while texting." Now that is something. I give him that. He sends me his image because I want to share a different perspective with you.
"Well, yours is nice but it is too dark. I feel like the sky is the subject rather than the Hard Rock Cafe. And, you lost a lot of nice detail in the front of the Cafe." He replies, "Good point. Let me work on it and send you another one."
Wow! Thanks for sharing our ongoing conversations. They go both ways. It is really nice to have a coach, mentor and friend sitting right next to me!!
Monica was happy to share her garden. It is a wild one specifically designed to attract butterflies, hummers, moths of all sorts, spiders and more. When I arrived with camera in hand she was sorry to tell me her garden had been soaked by a heavy rainfall just minutes prior to my arrival. "No problem," I told her. The rain drops will add interest.
