Ahhh... Summer is Here!

After a beautiful weekend I woke up to a most gorgeous day on Flander's Bay. The mirror effect of Cadillac Mountain on the bay this morning was absolutely incredible to the point where I don't believe I have seen it quite like that for a very long time, if ever. I shot several pictures out of the living room window and am posting my favorite.

As I headed out with George, my co-worker and commuting buddy, he pointed out an image of David's boat at the corner of the east side of the house, so I am including that one as well. What a beautiful start to the summer this past weekend!

It's June Bug Time!

And there are plenty of bugs out there, with the most apparent result being the "juicing up" of windshields while driving at night! Yuuuuck! I remember them being the nemesis back in the motorcycle days, when one of those things would hit you in the face and almost knock you off the seat.

I captured this one just after dark last night (with my iPhone and a macro attachment) on the screen into the mudroom . I was on the inside!

Black and White Jackson

I have been playing around with filters on my Alpha, and shot a "bunch" of pictures this weekend with a red filter, causing the greens in the landscapes to go lighter and giving some unpredictable (at the time) results for skin tones. Here's one of Jackson admiring the tree we planted together about a month ago.
