I took this shot of Kendrick Mountain on October 1st of 2016 and it was a beautiful day to get the fall colors on the eastern slopes

I love anything that flies and found this shot from earlier this year; a Ring Neck duck fully engaged his take off run.
Learn how to fly ... … one of my favorite songs from the Fifth Dimension and I used it in a short video clip I put together this afternoon which includes a flight Jason and I took on Saturday and one I took on Sunday.
I’m in the process of uploading some of my favorite composites to Getty iStock Photos and in the review process I came on this one which I did in May of 2013. 2013, was kind of a rough year; I lost my brother in January, early in May, Cork was put on Hospice Care and the day I took this shot we lost Q,, One’s predecessor and in November I lost Cork.
Get a grip … on life … the beauty that is everywhere … and people who matter in your life.
Beauty surrounds us and life abounds and continues without thought as most species go about the business of living and fulfilling their purpose. Thanks to Eric for the opportunity to shoot birds and critters in his backyard this morning. I love the beauty of Cardinals and generally find them a hyper species and hard to get good shots of, so was very pleased when this guy chose to spend a few minutes in the area. A nice day … busy and I may have actually accomplished something although what it is eludes me. For sure I enjoyed the day, seeing friends and talking with more on the phone; a couple of appointments in the afternoon and home to One and a quiet dinner which qualifies as reasonably healthy too; not something I always do. A friend sent me a definition of Taoism in response to my use of TaO on the cover of the calendar with the note that it describes the life One and I live: Taoism: “We are the breeze, No dam ever stops our flow, No net ever captures our essence, We always flow to the truth of our life. Live kindly and fully.” Thank you Mary, I like that. Another day is waiting to begin and be lived … first some sleep and then the usual shots of espresso and then life can resume. Have a beautiful day, smile and share your joy … someone’s life will be blessed by your presence in theirs … back Monday morning. Cheers Ted And in this journey over a thousand hills and valleys called life, he is wisest who is patient where the way is hard, has faith when he does not understand, and carries into the dark places the light of a cheerful heart.

As the sun sets, the atmosphere is filtering out the higher temperature wavelengths (blue) of the sunlight and we are left with the cooler rays which happen to be the reds, and they bathe the red rocks with a more intense color and cast long shadows accentuating the rocks facing the sun.
In a few texts with my girls tonight the “Lusty Month of May,” from Camelot was brought up as one of their favorite songs as we move into the month of May. I loved that play, so I loaded the original music from the Broadway Play and cast up in my Amazon music library and have been enjoying the music all night.
While every day is great, some are just a wee bit better than others and today was one of those.
