An Assortment

Here are several mostly unrelated photographs that I've taken while practicing with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i.

A neighbor's Sheltie, two houses away.

A pony among draft horses. The larger horse next to the pony is a draft horse foal. I had to shoot across two pastures to get this picture. Someday, I hope to get a better photo, showing the leadership role that this little guy seems to play among his much larger peers. Of course, he's at a bit of a disadvantage when they pair up to scratch each others' backs.

Storm clouds in the east, lit by the setting sun.

Rain collecting in a mushroom in our back yard.

Daisy-like flowers next to the water's edge at Ouabache State Park.

A cropped section of the previous photo, showing a bee on one of the blossoms.

Another shot of the same group of flowers.

My photo doesn't do this flower justice. It was a tiny fuchsia-colored flower growing in the grass at Ouabache State Park.

That's it for now. Back soon with more.
Hope everyone had a great July 4th. For those of us in the United States, that date holds a special significance.


  1. Gorgeous photos. I especially love the one with the colored clouds in the sky... Fabulous!!!!!

    How do you like your new camera? We are still happy with ours--although they are older now!

    Hope you had a great 4th.. We did even though it rained all day.

  2. loved them all! the pony made me say the sesame street line: one of these things is not like the others! :)

    the fleabane (the daisy like flowers) are almost perfect! ours usually look a tad bit beaten up. :) the mushroom cup is very cool. nice shots!

  3. Aw! Your new camera must have great zoom! The horses don't look like they're two pastures away.

  4. Inspiring photographs. I'd like to see more of the dynamic between that pony and the other horses.

  5. Amazing pictures. Great clarity.The clouds really capture my attention,I happen to love watching the sky.

  6. You are really getting good with your new camera. I would have to say that all of these photos are marvelous. The clarity of the horses across two pastures is amazing.

  7. A lovely collection, Linda. You really get a great deal of detail with your new baby. I love the mushroom collecting rain.. it puts me in mind of a fairy watering station. That Sheltie is just adorable.

    Hope you had a wonderful 4th!

  8. The sky is beautiful with its golden hue, Linda, it looks like mountains were hidden in the clouds. The white flowers are beautifully focused and it would be interesting indeed to find out more about the leadership role of the pony.
