This picture will no doubt look familiar to some, but I decided to change the way the text is presented so it will stand out more. The old version had black text against a gray and uneven background, making it somewhat difficult to distinguish. I like this version much better. How about you?

I took this photo during a hunting trip I went on a while back of my new rifle. It was a great trip, not only because I had a successful hunt, but because some of my best photos were taken there. What stands out in my mind the most is the gorgeous sunsets I saw while there. I could have literally spent an entire day photographing this gorgeous piece of property.

I was so excited that we finally got our first snow, but I wasn't prepared for the extreme temperatures I'd have to deal with in order to get any pictures of it. I would take about 5 pictures, and then have to put my hands in my coat pocket to regain feeling in my fingers. Nevertheless, I have some neat photos to share with you guys that I think were well worth the freezing temps.

This is a photo I took back in July of some wild grapes I spotted during a camping trip of ours. Apparently the birds had missed this particular cluster, because they were much larger than any others in the surrounding area. I had to climb up onto a nearby bench, but I was finally able to get a satisfactory shot.

Squirrels love birdseed. This is fine for photographers who enjoy snapping pictures of anything and everything they can, but birdwatchers in our area try everything within their power to keep these critters out of the bird feeders. As you can see from the picture, they can clean a person out fairly quickly.

I thought this photo I took tonight was pretty neat. I really like the silk-like strands running all over the background, and the brownish strand that runs along the edge of each blade looks really neat to me.
By the way, this is a yucca, in case you were wondering.

Wow! I just got back from a two day hunting trip up north, and I am so glad I brought my camera. I came within an inch of leaving it at home, but after debating it a bit I decided to take it along. This is a great view of the sunset that took place directly behind me early this evening. This photo is 100% unedited, coming straight off my camera. I’ve never before seen a sunset where you could look directly into the sun itself without so much as squinting your eyes. It was truly amazing!

No need to be jealous. This is a photo of the trees around here about a month ago, but I’m sure that by now they are bare like everybody else’s. We went to a conservation look-out tower near our home, and it provided me with a great vantage point to capture some beautiful landscapes such as this.
I normally don’t post stuff like this, but I just wanted to let you guys know about winkflash.com - a website that will print your photos for an amazingly cheap price and ship them to your home. A 4x6 costs $0.08, a 5x7 costs $0.25, and an 8x10 is only $1.49. Their site amazingly disproves the idea that “you get what you pay for.” I have to say that I’ve paid much more for photo printing in the past and have never been so happy with the quality of the image. I can honestly say they are significantly better than snapfish, and even slightly better than Wal-Mart’s new HP kiosks.
In case you’re still unsure, they offer 50 free prints to each new member. All you have to do is pay the $0.99 shipping cost. I received mine just a few minutes ago, and they are officially my new photo printer. And by the time you factor in their free image editing software and unlimited photo storage, it is more than worth the 5 minutes it takes to sign up. I highly recommend it!
