Just being able to take a picture of a flower really puts spring into perspective.  Has spring really arrived?

Motion

One of my joys is taking pictures of aircraft and then sending the pictures to their owner.  The motion is hard to get a great shot and keep it in focus.  This was taken yesterday afternoon.

Sweet

Sweet thoughts that we would not have ice on the ramp, BUT no, this was early this week.  Sweet patterns in the ice.

We found this old tree in Dead Horse Point State Park on our vacation. My daughter had her picture taken by the same tree about 15 years ago while it was still green.  Love the profile.

Shadow

This photographer really made me smile after I realized  to what lengths we will go to get just the right shot. I just had to take her picture.

We’re in Moab Utah this week for spring break doing a road trip, so most of my photos this week are from some of the scenery there.

This is one of my little grandsons who turned into a chatterbox when we took him on an airplane ride.  Kids love to hear their own voices in the headset.
