    One of my friends is a 787 driver for United. A few years ago when Australia had huge fires he took this photo from 30,000 feet.

    "The Homestead as Winter Rolls In"

    You can feel the cold! (And it makes the blazing woodstove so appealing upon return!)

    This piece seemed especially fitting for today, Thanksgiving Day here in the USA.

    My thoughts. My spirit as it stands today.

    This small cave is about 100 trecherous feet behind our original house (now my work shop / dog house). During heavy, prolonged rain it flows to create Cripple Creek.

    These
    These pictures are lovely Don. What kind of camera do you use? :) Or are some of these drawn by hand?

    Thanks for the kind and encouraging words!

    My "official" serious camera system is Canon DSLR based (with a wide selection of lenses) but truth be told probably 90% or more of what I post is taken with my always on hand iPhone 6S Plus.

    Of course that is just the initial fraction of a second 'recording' of the image that caught my eye. Rendering what I saw in my head often is hours of work and sometimes dozens of layers.

    No, nothing is "drawn" per se. It is all lifted from what the camera recorded. I, perhaps with some grandiosity, call the process I have developed "painting with light." And it comes directly out of what I did as an imager in science and medicine for almost all my working life. First with film and chemistry, then digitally.

    My own techniques. Some 'picked' up and written about by Kodak.

    The hours spent on each image are some of the most pleasant in my day. I disappear into the image and world at large is lost to me. (And largely unmissed!) :)

    Yeah, the sam thing happens when I write or play my geet.

    I.e., I am only "here" (in this world) occasionally. :D

    Jan is very, very patient!!!

    :)

    Just saw this flock of pigeons in the meadow. I called out "cranberry sauce" and for some reason the hightailed it into the woods as quickly as they could move.

    Why those words affect them so is beyond me!
