Summery Gloryousness

Here we have it... Nature in all it's summery gloryiousness... or is it Gloryitude?

My goodness what a productive weekend!

The list of chores accomplished would leave me astonished... car chores, house chores, basement chores, outside chores, cat chores, shopping chores, cleaning chores, organizing chores, upstairs chores & downstairs chores.

I even saw an Osprey being chased by an Eagle!

Wow, did you use a special lens for this? Beautiful.

John Nez said...

Thanks... but all the credit goes to the poppies and the cumulous clouds.

Nature did it all... no special lenses or anything.

My you were busy! Great photos John!

John Nez said...

Yes... sunny... sunny... sunny.

The way the NW climate works is first you don't see the sun for 8 months straight. And then you don't see another drop of rain for the next 4 months.

It's a very odd Jekyll & Hyde climate.

By August I'll be playing my 'rainforest' sound effects CD and waiting for the rain to start up.

WOW! Those are stunning!

And I'm very jealous about the chores. Mine are all still in "to do" form, not crossed off the list by any means! The weeds, oh, the weeds...

Good for you though. That's a great feeling, getting it all done.

Just the luck of the photograph... right place & right time. Then it's just 'snap'... and it's done.
