I am very in to photography. You may have noticed this on my blog as almost every post includes a photo, in many cases, multiple photos. Photos help me remember good times and good places. They help me identify birds. They help remind and illustrate the progress and changes in my life from the condition of the garden to my weight to the length of Matt's beard. Every year Matt and I go through the digital photos and print off a Highlights-Of-the-Year collection to add to the photo album. Looking at it makes me relive the adventures of the year. It is very satisfying....especially on a cold winter day when I feel that summer will never come back.
|The yuccas are looking very green already.|
So, the "Curse of the Camera-Holder" is that I am rarely in photos. I have countless photos of Matt and our friends and families exploring and playing, but not too many of myself. The camera is in my hand!
|There were so many pieces of just magnificently twisted, aged wood.|
|Being from Eastern and Central Montana I pleasantly surprised by the fact that this park is surprisingly covered in trees.|
|I knew it was going to be a great place to be when this Bald Eagle swooped low over the field next to us as we were driving in. I took it to be a good sign.|
|Rock Doves on the cliff's edge.|
|The Lamb's Ears were giant and so very soft and lovely. I got to teach Justin about them, which with my limited knowledge consisted of: "Oooh, look! Some Lamb's Ear. They feel so soft, check it out!|
|I got only one cactus spine through the sole of my fivefingers in the several hours we wandered. Considering how much cactus was out there I thought that was pretty good.|
|I found a really neat feather which is tucked up in my cap. I am watching the rock doves. Matt proudly told me he got an action shot of me since there are so few of me and so many of him.|
|I like that we are all scattered about in this photo with Jeremy itty-bitty in the background.|
