I am a violinist and violin teacher by profession, but it seems I've had a camera in hand most of my life. I recently found a box of photos I took almost 50 years ago, mostly very uninteresting shots of my sister and my dog. In a photograph, I look for the same things I do in music: contrast, rhythm, harmony, beautiful colors, and interesting lines. I've been very fortunate to be able to travel a bit. My family don't understand why I spend most of a trip behind the camera, but I relive my travels daily as my shots come up randomly on the computer, while they have only vague memories. Thanks for visiting. I look forward to reading your comments.

I think I've seen them in the summer, but I don't recall whether it was in US or Canada--and it was definitely at higher elevations. If you like the bighorn pics, stay tuned, as I have some great shots from Badlands NP to post soon. Many thanks for your comment!

I've asked, but don't expect a positive response because there's not much else in the photo. On the other hand, this one was accepted, even though it seems to show no more "landscape" than the eagle shot. I've recently started paying attention to getting some significant scenery in the background of my wildlife shots just for this reason, but sometimes (like this one) it just isn't possible.

Thanks for the comment!

RYD, thanks for your generous comments, and for the LIKE and the STAR! SInce you like this one, did you also see this one?

Thanks again. I actually cropped this from a larger shot showing more of the animal because I think this works better. Glad you like it. Since you seem fond of my deer shots, maybe you'd like to look at the rest of my wildlife pictures.

Thanks, David. This was late in the season (November 2), so the heat was far from oppressive, but Aegean sunlight has a character of its own, inside or out.

David, This was one successful capture among scores of scenes I would have liked to get. Between a tight schedule and roads too narrow for stopping, I missed most of the others. Would love to travel this way again, with more time. Thanks for the Like!

Thanks again, Dave. I am fond of the idea that there is extremely little in this shot that might not have looked the same 200 years ago. There's not a structure or a fence to be seen, and the few bits of visible road could already have existed in some form.

I only saw DWW once, MANY years ago, and it was a remarkable movie. Unfortunately, Costner's subsequent insensitive and arrogant business dealings in the area have left a bad taste in many locals' mouths, so the movie is not what I think of when enjoying these amazing vistas.

I've traveled this road weekly for years, and usually have my camera with me. There are often water birds in the ponds and sloughs, but this was the only time I have seen a scene like this! In this drought year, these ponds are nearly all dry, revealing they were never more than a couple of feet deep.

Thanks for mentioning the caption. I enjoy words just as much as I do images and music.
