Sunday Drive

Sorry I've been MIA lately. My in-laws are here from Michigan so we've been spending all day with them and then I drug myself up so I can sleep with this dang hand-ache at night, so I'm not spending much time with the laptop these past few days. We're pretty much joined at the hip, so I hope I didn't hurt it's feelings...

Last weekend, Secret Agent Man and I went for a drive in the Country. We like to do that as much as we can. We are always hoping we find that perfect parcel for real cheap, I think. Mostly we just like to drive, listen to the iPod and chat about the random crap that pops into our heads.
This time we went south and west of town a little. We thought we'd drive maybe an hour but ended up driving around for about 2 and 1/2! We remembered to bring the camera this time, and I have been playing around with some of the pictures we took. I wish that we had a better camera, which we will soon, but there were 3 hawks playing around that I would have loved to get pictures of. By the time I got my little point-and-shoot out and aimed at the birdies, one had flown away. I got a couple shots of the 2 left, but I just couldn't zoom in enough. Oh well. Maybe next time! :)

Anyway, here's a couple I've done some Photoshop Actions on.

  1. Birds are hard to photograph when they are flying. I've tried and one day... The country side pictures are so nice!

  2. Beautiful Country Shots!! Very peaceful :-)

    I can not get a pic of the coyotes or red fox in my yard. I do not have a zoom lenses... and sneaking up does not work. The animals run.

  6. By the looks of those great shots, looks like the hand is functioning enough to work a camera. Hope the hand is getting better and everyone is wrong and it's only writers cramp that will go away with a little rest from the puter. HUGS

    I know! Right? It just made the news today that the last "weather system" we had just west of here actually created FOUR funnel clouds that they have now determined WERE ACTUAL TORNADOES!

    Must be that "global warming" I keep hearing about! ;)
