Friday-Photography - Figures in the Sand

I enjoyed the gentle light and water-trails on this morning. Their spring-like colours weren’t bad either.

I’m looking forward to your sights.

Cheers, and have a good weekend.

Literally it is the out-going trails left by the tide, and seaweed and moss on rock. The colours were what I was especially attracted to. What I see figuratively, is a wedding dress with flowers sprinkled below. Glad you like it snoopy.

This path runs along a cliff with the ocean to the left. This is from my trip to Patrick's Point up by Eureka. Have you gone to this area? The trip up highway one is just stunning. The Sonoma coast, Mendocino and all the little towns in between. Sigh .... hopefully some day.

Fond memories of the park. She should have kept driving and found a spot overlooking the ocean. Mine was about 40 yards from the cliffs. Agate beach didn't allow dawgs on the trail down to it so I drove to a spot about a mile away that had access to it.

and interesting photos--you've convinced me to put visiting New Zealand on my Bucket List (which is pretty long, already Wink ). Thanks for posting tonight's Photography OT.

A bit OT from Springtime photos (only because I've been looking into various Golden Kennels lately), here are two Golden photos. Obviously, the first shot illustrates the various 'shades' of golden. The second photo is one of the few that I found that didn't appear to be copyrighted to some degree.

Sure it's no secret, though, that 'Springers' are our favorite breed. Smile

Here's an informal photo of a Springer in his service/therapy dog capacity, also a Westminster Best In Show-- "Felicity's Diamond Jim." His call name was 'James.' Here's a link to his Wikipedia entry.

Large - James - Blue Bandana.JPG
[Felicity's Diamond Jim]

Closer to the Holidays, I plan to post his formal portrait. It is truly incredible, in that I've never seen such a 'perfect' ESS. Of course, there were at least two Springers who were just as beautiful [to us]. Smile And they will live in our hearts--forever.

Enjoy your lovely Spring, Janis. Everyone have a nice weekend--hope those who are stateside, manage to stay warm and cozy.

Hey, if I should ever be so lucky (to visit NZ), I'll be sure to give you a shout out by asking you "to keep the lights on for us," as the old Motel 6 jingle went.

Wink

Seriously, we hope by early next year to be able to resume plans for our own expatriation--including deciding on the destination. Our choices are narrowed considerably, because of pet quarantine regulations--which will apply to us once again, if everything goes as planned. (Mexico uses a pet health certificate for folks traveling from the US. Which is one reason that we were considering Puebla--because of 'the B.') BTW, 'think' I read that Prince Harry and Megan were in NZ recently. Sounds like he travels there a bunch, and is well-liked by your countrymen.

Have a nice weekend!

your toe's better, and that Charlie's beginning to get some relief from her supplements. IIRC, our vet said that it could take a good month or two, to really see much improvement.

Enjoyed all your photos--you sure have some nice scenery in your 'hood. ;-D I know the dawgs must be enjoying their walks this time of the year. (Assuming that the weather's still Fall-like, in your neck-of-the-woods.)

Have a nice weekend!

Charlie is finally improving, but she has a way to go yet. She isn't limping as much so that's good. The toe is fine most days, but it's still quite broken and if I move wrong or if Charlie steps on it yowie.

Yes Utah has some beautiful scenery especially this time of year. Actually all through the year depending where I go. 10 minutes and I'm on the trail in my second photo. It goes up to a beautiful waterfall. Our temps are in the high 60's with very blue skies.

@snoopydawg

your toe, honestly, don't remember how long it took for my Mother's toe to heal. Seems like it was quite a while--mostly, I'm thinking, because she didn't stay off her feet as much as she probably should have.

Eventually, I may try my hand at photography. Actually, I went ahead and got a new smartphone about a week ago--but, it was less expensive than I had planned to purchase. So my 'guess' is that the camera will not be anything to write home about.

Hopefully, though, between the two newest phones we have (between us), we'll have one that can produce an 'okay' photo. One phone says it has 'Dual Auto Focus' pixels--whatever that means--and, it has a 12 MP Rapid Focus Camera. The newer, yet cheaper phone, has a 13 MP Main/5MP Front Camera. (There's no more info on the box than that, and it's not even been activated.) Anyhoo, if I decide to take a few shots, I'll download and print the camera section of the user manual. Of course, I did that once for another phone--didn't have a clue what they talking about!
