… not that long before Fall is here and winter not far behind that … thinking snow and cool temperatures around here today … can’t wait!!!
Every once in a while I get to see some nice snow on the ground here and then I am off with my camera capturing snow on tree limbs and branches, backlit scenes and more. Usually I can be found “out there” for hours after I wake up to the fairy tale that is Sedona after a snow storm … and every once in a while I’ll take a photo of our home from across the eighth fairway near the green and the arroyo … such is the photo tonight and a light snow was still falling when I took it. A lot of my wildlife photos are taken within a few hundred feet of our home. Golf courses are great places for wildlife photos as you have water, cover and a good food supply both for predators and their prey. The trees on the left side of the photo are frequented by Coopers Hawks as well as the usual tweety birds that are their prey and bobcats and other creatures wend their way up the arroyo. I am beginning to spend more time out on the deck now which is in the area between the two primary trees on the left side of the image … and wait and look for critters.
It was another busy one with numerous gems cut, images deleted and a stop at the airport to do a little work on the Lambada. Lunch with friends and this evening selling tickets for Anthony’s concert at Relics … that is a fun thing! Time to put a wrap on the day and week … thanks for joining in on the journey … and enjoy your weekend and friends.
Be well … smile and tell someone that you love them … back on Monday
So each one to his wish, and as for me,
I sit tonight and wait
To find the answers to my soul in me,
And in the beauty of the sky and sea.
