Ten… 116/365

Ten... 116-365

One of my favorite cooking tools, cleaned, oiled and ready to go to work…another minimalistic shot to go against he complexity of my day…trying to add some zen or something like that to balance everything out…

Thanks for Visiting…

Maybe it was because I was listening to classical music on the way home tonight…and my mind was already n that frame…but as I pulled into the driveway, I was met by clouds that look like the hands of a conductor…I tried layering on a row of piano keys, but the image looked too corny to me and the natural image says more in the end without saying too much…

Thanks for visiting…

…because that is what they look like they are doing…like eyes wide open searching through the grey…

Face First...

…yep…another bee face first in the pollen of a Cosmos flower…this time I think I did a better job of getting some depth of field, making more of the bee sharper and in focus…

Simplicity…about as complex as I want it at 5:30am…an image I am thinking of entering in “Competitions on the 24/7” group in RedBubble with the theme “Morning Madness” but I am not sure yet…might have to stretch it a bit to fit it into the madness part…

Thank you or Visiting…

The Elements… 111/365

Elements... 111/365

I don’t do too many things like this…collage I think it is called…but after I was finished processing the images from Saturday, I noticed a bit of a pattern…other than they were all water drops on a leaf…they sort of represented all the elements…well the ones of old that is…

It had rained Friday night…a storm that was pretty close as I tied down the airplane and hurried to pack the bags into the car…and the next morning the yard was littered with leaves full of water droplets…

This is a macro of some floor cover slash mossy plant hat is rampant in the yard…it is very soft despite its spiky appearance…I liked how upon closer inspection, the tips of the leaves are red…

Oshkosh At 3500 Feet… 112/365

Oshkosh At 3500 Feet... 112-365

The flight home, other than being a blast, was uneventful…we made our way south with the wind yet again at out tail, listening to the other aircraft around us…at various stages of landing patterns, approaches and departures…we even caught a “jumpers away” over East Troy airfield and could see over our right wing, the silhouette of the diver and parachute as they drifted to the earth again…sorry, no image that time, I did have to fly the thing on occasion…

Wind Farms.. 

South of Oshkosh is a huge expanse of wind generators…not that they generate wind, but rather electricity from the wind…somewhat creepy to me in their gargantuan size with impossibly huge blades slowly rotating…the chart showed nine…I think they ran out of ink…

In the interest of not getting too lengthy in post, I will leave it here tonight and post today’s image with tomorrows and then I am back on track gain…until tomorrow…

Thanks for Visiting…

Marginal VFR… 110/365

Marginal VFR... 110/365

This was the view from the side of the windscreen on out flight up to Eagle River this Friday…the scene is a rather deceptive one in that the clouds, while dark, were rather benign, there was no turbulence, in fact it was rather smooth, and although it was hazy and the light was falling, the visibility was still over 10 nautical miles…

I have Saturday’s and today’s images all set to go, but I am tired from the weekend and the flight home and will post a triple play including tomorrow night’s image.  I wanted to give all of you that visited while I was “on vacation” something for today, and rather than just slapping on the last three day’s work, I want to spend some time putting it all together nicely…

Marginal VFR... 110.5-365

Both of these images are straight from the camera with no processing…something I rarely do, but I thought it worked well with these..OK actually when I tried to process them, they started to look like crap, so in their own way they were telling me to lay off…so I did…

(By the way…the instrument panel only looks like it was a bouncy ride…the exposure was too long and I moved…a shot that I would normally throw away, but in this case there was something about it I liked…)

Thanks for Visiting…
