Lupine Festival

I got a chance to get up to the lupine festival this afternoon. It was mostly cloudy while I was there. So, I wasn’t able to come away with many landscape photographs. This photo was taken at the field across the street from Polly’s in Sugar Hill.

Sparrow In The Snow

I was playing around with rounded corners in photoshop today for a website I’m working on. Since it is very warm and muggy out I thought I’d practice on this photo of a sparrow during a snow storm from last winter.

Hopefully the weather cooperates next week so I can get back to doing more landscape photography. Stay tuned….

I was going through so of my landscape photos from last year to see what I was photographing at around this time. As I mentioned in an earlier post, things are way behind last year. This image taken was taken on June 2nd of last year across from Polly’s Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill. Harmon’s Cheese and Country Store has a few comparison photos of the lupines on their website that show how far behind they are this year. I hope to get back up there this year during the Lupine Festival to get a few more photos of the lupines.

Northern Flicker

We’ve been occasionally seeing a pair Northern Flickers over the past week to ten days. They have been kind of shy and not coming anywhere near the house. A couple of days ago this one wandered over as it was pecking at the ground and I was able to get a quick shot before it took off.
