Ashley, Evan, Melanie & Robert!

Just a quick trial of a new service and a highlight of a wonderful family…

A month ago (or more?) Heather and I had the chance to share a rainy afternoon with Ashley, Evan, Melanie & Robert and their three dogs Bossy, Barbosa and Bently. They’re a fantastic bunch. Genuine, full of energy & loving – my favorite kind of people!

You can take a look at a few of the images here:

And, the trial as promised below: a video slideshow of the images in the gallery. What do you think? Do you like the slideshow? For a first-take, I like it… I do have other options of music, transitions, and more but it’s nice to see the various images. One adjustment that I would like to adjust is the keyframe (the static frame when the video is stopped); I’m not sure if it can be adjusted with the services I use, but it would give a chance to highlight a specific image or even just my photography branding.


Morning Wildlife

Cinnamon (Black) Bear

This morning I was up by 3:15 and before the sun was up I had some breakfast and 30 minutes of reading under my belt (appropriately from Wild at Heart). Getting out the door at around 4:15, I headed out to catch up with my friend Bill for some bear searching near the Peterson Creek Meadows. On the way there, I saw four deer and a bear. Here’s a picture of one of the deer.

After my brief stop, we made it out to the meadows and wandered about through the woods hoping for bear, but there wasn’t much more than a single pile of scat. It’s was a beautiful morning, but woefully slim on wildlife save for birds chirping incessantly. Of course, on the way back, there was more wildlife right along the highway… This time, it was two different bears…
