High level, but good…

Our office building sits directly on the Chattahoochee River. Right behind the building is an island where Great Blue Herons nest every year. I’ve always wanted to try and capture pictures of them. I was up at the office this afternoon and noticed that they’re back and nesting. It was very overcast, and I got rained out before I could make it back with a tripod, but I did get a chance to try out my new lens. These are definitely the best results so far. Hopefully, I can get better shots on a day when I have more time.
Well, I recently returned from the Tetons.
I don’t really want to recount it much. I had been planning to take my sons with me to retrace my backpacking there in 2007. We also scheduled mountaineering classes and a climb.
Unfortunately, the combination of excessive snow pack at elevation and my being sick meant that we were not able to do much of anything we planned.
It was a major (expensive) disappointment.
We did get a few pictures from the activities we did participate in. I had planned to build a full site of our great adventure. Instead, I’ll just post a few pictures. They’re not all mine. David and Christopher both had cameras and captured some pretty nice photos.
I’ve been meaning to post this. I saw it a couple of weeks ago. I’m amazed at the work that went into putting this together…
Very clever, especially check out the adapter to create 3 outlets from one.
In the spirit of posting interesting stuff I run into, (and the current trend of not finding time to really work on my blog)…
Hopefully you find this as mesmerizing as I did. Not exactly cheery and uplifting, but amazing work nonetheless.
