Below is an image from my ShutterStock portfolio.
Right now it is my least popular image on the SS site. I'm trying an experiment to see what role views have on the popularity algorithm, Not purchases, but views. SOOOOO, I'm asking if everybody who sees this would take a moment and click through and see if it helps. Of course, you have my permission to purchase, too!

Sorry for the light posting folks, been a bit busy... Here's an oldie: a post from 1 year ago today, welcoming summer:
Happy summer! Just a couple of wildflowers I noticed near the parking lot along one of our bike trails.... I thought they were cool. I used a little of the Beautifier filter from RedPawMedia, as discovered over at My Viewfinder…. Thanks John!

It was a good experience, and I still have tons of photos to wade through, but there's no place like home.....
Above is another shot of the event, taken from my aprtment window.... I had felt guilty about even taking photos of somebody's tragedy, but was able to offset that uneasiness by donating the $100 to the families that were displaced (through a collection at my work). And yes, that is snow (In June).

OK, there’s a little shot of reality. A holf hour later, and it’s still snowing, and they’re still trying to put out the fire. So far, they’ve kept it from spreading to the adjacent unit. None of that other stuff seems so irritating now.

I decided to post this, after seeing John R's "I was there" shot at his blog. Anybody else want to take up the challenge??

There was lots of water, guess it's still a lot off snow melt. The mist here was almost like stepping into a rainy day. The above shot is actually from a bit off the trail, my son and I had to do a little exploring, always trying to head UP!
Now, if I were a "good" chronicler, I would've noted the name of this waterfall, so that I could announce it here. But I was too wrapped up in the moment and completey forgot. The guys rode motorcycles / ATVs to get near here, the ladies met up with us in the Suburban.
Yep, I always have to try the "artsy" shot... I'd have to duck in, snap, then duck out and wipe of the water spray from the camera.... I did several, but prefer the ones with slower shutter speeds, giving an overall blur.
My son at the rail. This photo is taken from about the edge of the mist region...
