Lunar Moon

December 13th, 2013

Lunar Moon

I had a great time taking photos of this moon. Being present at night time, the skies are black except for the lunar moon which is full in breadth and appearance. There is a beige tinge to the revolving rock around the Earth.

Did you know that the Farmer’s Almanac has different names for the moon depending upon which month occurs? They are as follows;
January: "Wolf Moon" also "Old Moon"
February: "Snow Moon", also "Hunger Moon"
March: "Worm Moon", "Crow Moon", "Sap Moon", "Lenten Moon"
April: "Seed Moon", "Pink Moon", "Sprouting Grass Moon", "Egg Moon" "Fish Moon"
May: "Milk Moon", "Flower Moon", "Corn Planting Moon"
June: "Mead Moon", "Strawberry Moon,” ""Rose Moon", "Thunder Moon"
July: "Hay Moon", "Buck Moon", "Thunder Moon"
August: "Corn Moon", "Sturgeon Moon", "Red Moon", "Green Corn Moon", "Grain Moon"
September: "Harvest Moon", "Full Corn Moon",
October: "Hunter’s Moon", "Blood Moon"/"Sanguine Moon"
November: "Beaver Moon", "Frosty Moon"
December: "Oak Moon", "Cold Moon", "Long Nights Moon"

Hawaiian Sunset

December 12th, 2013

Hawaiian Sunset

Hawaiian Sunset -


This is a photo I took in Waikiki, Hawaii while on a sunset cruise. Hawaii is interesting because the highs and lows in temperature for the day and night are very similar within a few degrees each day most of the year. It was really a “Groundhog Day” out there. Plus, I don’t think I have seen a quicker sunset in my life. It was there one minute and shortly afterwards, it was down. I chose this image today because of the cold weather we have been having so I can always dream and remember.

Please note a couple of sailboats on the horizon in the center image and the plane just over the land on the right hand side of the photo.

ET Face in Tree

ET Face in Tree

ET Face in Tree

I like to look at things and possibly see things that might be special. This is a photo of a tree with moss on it. The part that is interesting to me is that there seems to be a face, an ET face, protruding from the tree. I see the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth and throat. Can you see it?

Wheels, Gears and Cogs

Wheels, Gears and Cogs

Wheels, Gears and Cogs

Here is a rusted out piece of machinery consisting of Wheels, Gears and Cogs. I am not sure exactly what this type of machinery is but the intricacies of the wheels, gears and cogs and how they are working together is amazing. I find this image fascinating even if the machinery is rusted out and does not work anymore.

Famous Alcatraz Island

Famous Alcatraz Island

Alcatraz Island -

I took this photo of this famous island from a ferry boat ride that was going by the sight. The island is known as “The Rock” and was home to a lighthouse, a military fortification, a military prison and a federal prison. Native Americans call it an “evil island” and believe it to be cursed. A number of movies have been made on the Island. Tours are available to it. You can see a huge barge on the right of the photo and in front of the bridge.

Toppled Wire Fence

Toppled Wire Fence

Toppled Wire Fence

I really don’t have much to say about this photo other than I like the simplicity of it. The strain of use over time has made this wire fence topple over at the post’s base. I always find it interesting how you get not only white snow but blue hues when you photograph the shadows on snow.

Butterflies, Flowers and a Bee

Butterflies, Flowers and a Bee

Butterflies, Flowers And A Bee

As it is snowing and a bit cold out, I thought I would cheer some people up with a spring photo of orange and black butterflies, beautiful yellow flowers which I think is the Canola crop and a bee. There were a lot of butterflies in this one patch of field. How many butterflies do you see?

This is interesting information about Canola written in Wikipedia. “Canola was bred naturally from rapeseed at the University of Manitoba, Canada by Keith Downey and Baldur R. Stefansson in the early 1970s, and had a different nutritional profile in addition to much less erucic acid.”

Baby Merganser

Baby Merganser

Baby Merganser

I had a hard time capturing this photo and some others similar to it because ducks are mobile, constantly moving by swimming, ducking into the water and/or flying. This is a baby merganser just developing its changing colours and feathers. This is one of many species of birds that live near Lake Winnipeg which is the 10th largest freshwater lake in the world. The mergansers are fish-eating ducks.

Broken Down

December 3rd, 2013

Broken Down

I took this photo because I like the broken down shed in the back. It may have been a barn but it is not traditional looking as the big, red old barns do. The attention of the photo starts with the fence and then takes you to the old shed. Even the wheat grabs your attention along with the fence. There are so many wonderful old buildings that are still standing and it makes you question what life was like when the farm was a family home with the vibrant pursuit of being a farmer.

Water Scene

Water Scene

Water Scene

This is a photo of a simple little water scene. The yellow and black fish swim along the pink and purple coral. Sorry, I am not even sure what the names are of all the parts of this water scene. To me, it is just beautiful being nameless and not properly identified. I even like the angle the fish swims at as it seems to curve its own body. Any help identifying what it what?
