Run for Your Lives!

Tomorrow we are shipping up to Boston to see family and friends and enjoy a great meal. However, it is not so great for these guys! There is no hunting where we live so these guys are safe. Most of us will eat farm raised turkey’s tomorrow or maybe Tofurkey. Still in the spirit of the Native Americans we stole this land from, I want to thank these turkeys for giving their lives so we can provide sustenance at our family gatherings. I also want to give thanks for my family and friends, this wonderful country and those who defend it and to my increasingly larger number of fans who follow and read this blog. Have a great holiday!

Deer Kiss

This photograph was taken long before our society became scared of our own shadow. Now our government officials and media pundits constantly use fear to sell their positions. In the 1970’s there were no hand sanitizers and we didn’t know about lime disease. I can’t imagine a parent allowing their child to kiss a deer today, but back then it was no problem.

Just Another Road

Yesterday I posted an image of Canyonlands NP in Utah. You don’t have to go into a park to see the natural beauty of the land. This is on a state highway headed towards Bryce Canyon National Park not far from Panguitch Utah.

Canyonlands

Out of all the states I have visited, Utah was the biggest surprise. I don’t know what I expected but it seemed that every turn of the road brought new vistas that were prettier than the last. This image was a throw away image. I never looked at it twice until today. I had such wonderful shots of the hoodoos of Bryce canyon and the delicate sculptures of Arches National Park. I never looked at this one as being special but now decades later I think it is quite a nice image. This is Canyonlands National Park near Moab Utah.

Dog Fight

My wife and I visited San Francisco and Monterrey California for our twentieth anniversary. A few years later we took our daughter there for a visit on the way to Los Angeles. We had told our daughter about all the Seals we had seen in San Francisco but of course when we got there the seals were not where we had left them six years earlier. The park official in San Francisco told us they were gone from the area and migrating to the channel islands. We were disappointed. A few days later after getting to Monterrey Califronia we were walking towards the aquarium and we smelled them before we saw them. They were all over the harbor, hundreds maybe thousands of Seals. They bark like dogs and fight and play like dogs but smell of the sea! I took this image while we watched them off the pier.

Last Years Buck

Yesterday’s post reminded me of this one from last year. This guy was a little bigger and more majestic than yesterday’s post. I only hunt deer with a camera, but understand the need for hunting to control the herd.Deer are kind of smart since there is no hunting in our community we see our deer population soar during hunting season only to spread out during the rest of the year. I don’t know how they understand to hide here. You can buy a print of this image and see others at my gallery by cclicking here.
