The Photography Room - Amateurs & Pros Welcome
9 years ago

Time for a new thread!  This is our Photographers Room where we share our own photos of scenary, our hobbies, nature ... just about anything goes in here except photos of our kitties or family since they both have their very own threads to be posted in. Just remember, do not post any pics wider than 640 pixels as this will stretch the thread and then we have to delete your pics and we just don't like doing that!!   

Oh - almost forgot   You can also post your digital artworks in this thread if you'd like to share some of your creations. Pictures in here are the property of the poster, so we do ask that you get permission if you would like to use a photo you see.

There were some really nice photos posted in our last thread, so don't forget to check it out. Here's the link

Ok . . .  let the picture posting begin!!

Deb, nice photo!  I love the deep colors in your rainbow and the purplish sky.  It looks like there has been a little stormy weather there.

Here are a few bird pictures I just shot.

Beautiful rainbow Deb. You got some nice vivid colors there. Sugar, I love your bird pics. I think the one is a downy woodpecker? And isn't that a female cardinal? The one you called red bird. You really got good shots of them.

Night night.

9 years ago

Hi Donna, thanks for the compliments.  No, the woodpecker's are redbellied.  The one upside down is a female if I remember right.  You can't tell because she is in the shadows.  The redbird is a male cardinal.  We just call them redbirds here.  He is scruffy and the pic was in the evening without much daylight so he probably looks less red because of that.  The females are much more brown.  I have oodles and oodles of the redbirds.  In the winter they are so colorful in the bare trees.  I have two males that have been fighting since spring.  It is terrible, they literally hate each other.  One of them has lost some head feathers from the fighting.  Redbirds are territorial, but they are being rediculus.  There is room and food for all.

You guys take such great pics!  I found my camera and here are 2 pics of a lighthouse.  I love lighthouses.  They were taken on a trip to Baddeck, NS yesterday.  (Actully Martin took the pics.)

how do you get the pictures to directly show up in the post instead of just links?

9 years ago

Kyley do you have an album here at Care2?  I have albums here and I simply go there and click on a picture to enlarge it and then right click and copy.  Then I come here or where ever and paste it.  Other people have different places I guess they store pictures and then bring them here.  I don't know.  Also there is a thread in the red pins I believe that tells you how.  If not the red, then the blue pins.  I will be looking for your pictures!

Sandrea I got carried away and forgot to mention your lighthouses.  Wouldn't it be nice to rent one out some time and spend a vacation there?   They are beautiful.

Sugar, I use to be able to copy and paste in here, but now I have to first shade the picture, and then copy it.

The male cardinals around here have more red, and the females have less red.

Sandrea, your pics are great. I never saw a light house in person. wow.

9 years ago

Kyley,

Go to the this is my cat and I am proud thread. It has a red pin next to it. Start your Post by clickong on reply.

Go to your pictures in your album, and click on a picture to enlarge it, shade it, the right click to copy, and go to your post, click in there, and right click to paste it in.

9 years ago

Thanks Sugar and Donna.  I have a picture that I'll have to find of a lighthouse we visited on the West Coast of PEI, last year.  It has a restaurant in the bottom and rooms to stay in above.  It has an awesome view of a beautiful beach, right at the ocean.  I hope I can find the pic.  I thought it would be a lovely place to have a honeymoon!

Hi Kyley, I love your creek.  It is so green and cool looking around it.  I could sit on that bench and really enjoy it.  I like your bike!  My bike is a hot pink.

Sugar

Kyley, those are beautiful pics! Hope we can get you going on posting them in here. You can message me if you want and we can see if we can figure out what is wrong.

Sandrea, those are cool! I love lighthouses, too, and cannot wait to get to Oregon so I can go to the beach and check out more of them. I'm glad you found your camera!

Sugar, those are neat bird pics!! Is that one hanging upside down?? I love the cardinals but I'm not that fond of the woodpeckers as I have seen them peck the heck out of a beautiful tree! But the pics are good - really good!!

I have nothing new   No camera out of the box yet. I cannot believe that I have this wonderful DSLR and I can't even find time to get it out of the box and set up

Thanks for sharing everyone 

9 years ago

Hi, Kyley.  I see you are using Photobucket.  Copy the HTML code under the picture, then when you come here to post click on "basic editor" on the bottom right of the posting box.  Right click and paste that code in...that should do it     

9 years ago

Thank you Sandrea, that works hopefully soon I will be able to get out and take more pictures... Photobucket

9 years ago

Nice pictures Kyley !

I click on direct link to highlight it, and then I right click and copy. Then I Click on the square next to the yellow smiley above this post.

It brings down a box, and I paste the direct link in, and under give it a name, and then there is a flat box on the bottom to click on to put it into the post.  I guess there are lots of ways to do it.

9 years ago

You're very welcome, Kyley! Great job getting that beautiful pic to post    

We look forward to more

Gosh...where has time gone??  I mentioned lighthouse pics from last year and they are actually from 2007....it was like last week to me 

Here is the lighthouse I mentioned at Westpoint, PEI with the 2nd pic being the beach beside it. 

That is me in the Jean shirt and black jacket.



Photobucket

The beach is so vacant and so, although it is September, our Atlantic Seasons run late...

Which way to the beach!
!


   Photobucket

Sooooo... then we headed to East Point, PEI...It's not a huge Island, lol...

Photobucket





Here we are...30 seconds late for the ferry back to NS....this lighthouse is called Southpoint (I think), and it's right beside where you line up for the ferry!

  Photobucket

There's a virtual map of PEI.. you can guess where North is, lol.

Beautiful pictures Sandrea, and that is you without your sunglasses? It is nice, but a little hard to see you from the distance. You look great from what I can see anyway. Those light houses are neat looking.

9 years ago

Thanks, Donna.  I didn't realize the pics were going to be so small.  I'll repost that last one, without sunglasses lol, in the Mug Shot Thread.

9 years ago

Oh!!! Lighthouses!!! I love lighthouses! Those are beautiful pics, Sandrea   I had no idea that you didn't have those sunglasses tatooed onto your face!!!! They really do come off!!!  JK hehehe. That second lighthouse looks like it could be from a miniature golf course - well, back when they took care of the courses and everything was new, anyway. Thanks for sharing!! Still trying to figure out how to get the strap on my new camera!

9 years ago

Sandrea I love your lighthouses!  I love lighthouses period!  I think it would be wonderful to live in one except for one thing, the storms that could come up and be so scary.  I wonder if lighthouses are built to sway a little?

Sugar

9 years ago

I know what you mean, Deb... It looks like it could make a nice miniature for mini-golf, for sure!
Oh, and I guess if we waited this long for you to get your camera out of the box, then check it out...we can wait however long for you to get the strap on
Sugar, I know what you mean too, about engineering them to "sway" in the many violent storms they must endure... I wonder
Here's another one, but at Peggy's Cove, NS. Although the 2nd pic gives plenty of warning, there were still people right up to the water.
All these pics were taken on the camera I lost...otherwise I'd have a whole bunch of other scenery to show, since it was full of other great pics when I lost it    I don't expect anyone to remember my first avatar here, but it was of me in front of the ocean at this place Photobucket Photobucket

9 years ago

All these pictures are beautiful!  I love the variation of wildlife and landscapes.  The lighthouses are wonderful too.  There aren't too many lighthouses on California's coastline that I know of, as there are on the East coast.  It must be nice to see them up close.

Sandrea, I'm sorry about you losing your camera.  Gael lost hers at the Wild Animal Park last week.  Thankfully someone turned it in.  The first thing I did when we got home was got out my label maker and made labels of our names and cell phone numbers to stick on all our cameras.  Hopefully someone will call us if we should lose a camera again.

Anyway, here are pictures I took at San Diego's Wild Animal Park.  I put more of them in a photo album. 

There was a nice pond full of lily pads.

Here is a group of flamingos.  I just happened to catch one of them flapping its wings.

Lee, those are really great pics of the Wild Animal Park.  One thing I miss since moving away from San Diego is being able to go there and the Zoo.  I was a member of the Zoological Society for over 20 years, and am still getting invites to renew!

Hello my friends. It has been so long since the last time I posted a photo on the Photography Room.

All the pictures are very pretty. I love the birds and lighthouses. Sandrea I like very much the last lighthouse with the stones. I can´t believe you lost your camera. What a shame!

Lee I love the lilly ponds. I have taken some in my last vacation, I actually take tons of pictures of lilly ponds.

I haven´t been able to download them from the memory stick and edit them. My monitor is not working well switches off constantly and that prevents me from edit them and upload them in my albums.

9 years ago

Lee, those are beautiful pics!!  Those flamingos are just gorgeous.  I really like the lily pads too
Good idea about marking cameras and other things of value!

Oh, I wish I had some pics to share! Lee, I just loved yours! I honeymooned at the San Diego Wild Animal Park!!!   Well, actually we just went there for the day - stayed at the Coronado - right on the beach. Anyway, I will get that camera unpacked soon - even if it kills me!!!  Ana, beautiful flower - I don't think it's been posted before. Thanks for sharing everyone!!

Update:  Sugar was asking if lighthouses were built to sway because of violent weather. Apparently the taller ones are built with some give, the same as with sky scrapers.  If there wasn't flexibilty they would snap. 

9 years ago

I guess that's why there are so many that are very old that are still around. Thanks for the update, Sandrea s

9 years ago

Sandrea, thanks, I thought it was likely that sway would be built in.

Ooooooooooooh!!!!! Ana!!!!! Those are gorgeous!!!   I like the rose the best, too, but both are very, very nice!! Thanks for sharing! 

I still have not gotten my new camera all rigged up but I did get a shot of one of my pansies with the old camera when I was shooting pics of the house.

Oooh, Ana... those flowers are beautiful.  I like the blue/yellow one.  The leaves on the flowers in both pics are so healthy looking!
Deb I love your pansy...petunia?  It's "pretty in pink"

9 years ago

This isn't a great photo but it makes me wonder......who used this so many years ago?  Were there indians living around the area then?  Was the creek bigger than and of course cleaner?  It is beside the trail I walk on at Long Branch Farm, a part of Cincinnati Nature Center located in my part of the world.  I could follow the creek from my home and end up there but I can't, cause I would have half a dozen furkids following me.

Sugar, I think it is a really neat photo! I love seeing that old stuff like that. We have some hogans still around here - I need to try and get a pic of one. There's also quite a few original mud houses. Thanks for sharing. Well, guess what I finally did today????? Yep! I put the new camera together and took a few photos in my spare 15 minutes I had today. Here's one I took - I didn't see the critter until after I took it!

And here's a little marigold

I will get to know how to work with it more and more, but so far I love it!!

Wow! I haven't been in here for so long-these are amazing! Dazzling colors! Lee, I wish you'd post your cheetah in the Big Roar-that's a beautiful shot.

Deb-your flowers are incredible-they leap right out at you! Gorgeous! Well, I needed this-they all really lit me up after a funky day-love you guys!

Deb, beautiful flowers.  The colors are so vibrant and alive.  Keep up the good work!

Sugar

Thanks ladies It's the camera - I couldn't believe the colors either. They are identical to what I saw in the lense. I have not had a camera this nice for a long, long time. Now I have to learn how to put all of it to use! Here's another marigold

Sugar, that is a really neat stone structure....I didn't know it was called a hogan.  So great to run across stuff like that while hiking.

Deb, your pictures are outstanding!!
(I know you put that bug there on purpose   )

9 years ago

Hey thanks, again! Sandrea, the stone relic in Sugar's pic is not a hogn - I just mentioned that we have some hogan's here that are relics from the past like the stone building or chimney or whatever that cool looking structure is in Sugar's pic. The hogans are from Navajo peoples. This whole area used to be reservation - in fact, the area for miles around me was actually not even Colorado for a long time. We have all kinds of stuff here - Native American sweat lodges and Hogans and artifacts from the Anasazi peoples. No one really knows whatever happened to them - like the Mayans, they just seem to have disappeared. Anyway, thanks for the comments and thanks for sharing everyone!!

A pic of itsy bitsy mushrooms, toadstools or fungi.  I don't know which, but they were so cute.  Tiny and perfect in every detail.  They were ever so white!  The picture makes them look a lot larger than they really are.  I wish I had something in the photo to show their real size.

Thanks Sandrea. I saw the other lighthouse pics and they were all really pretty, so I figured I would post mine. But then I saw all the other pics from last summer and had to post a few more.

Kyley, I love the old building!  I would love to even have a puzzle of that one.  I love old things much more than new.  They have more character!

This picture is very bad technically, but I love it anyway.  Bees are so very scarce around here.  You should see me mow!  I keep a very close eye out for them and stop until they get out of the way.   These yellow weed flowers were full of bees.

Good thinking Sugar... I wouldn't mind a puzzle in any of Kyley's pictures
I love mushrooms, but only from the store, lol.
It's good to see those bees doing their job.  I know what you mean about mowing....I was mowing once and a hornet or something bit me in the back.  Since I didn't see it coming...I thought someone stabbed me....that's how it felt.

An interesting observation.  I have noticed the hawk's feather's reflect the green of the vine and grasses.  I wonder if that is an aid in being an effective predator?

Hi guys!  I was getting set up to take a photo of the moon and what I think is Mars and took this accidentally.  Any one have an idea what it is?  Maybe a moth dropping powder?

Sugar, you should see if the bird societies would like to put your Hawks in their magazine or books. Absolutley out of this world with perfection. You are a super dooper pro now. That profile and face forward pics are fantastic. That is all I can say.

The photo before the last he or she looks kind of sweet or happy or something. I love the last one too. That bum was in our front yard the other day. When I see them come in I rush out to look at them but I also want to protect the sweet birdies too. Especiually the ones who mate for life.

Hi everyone!!  It's been a while since my last contribution but I have enjoyed looking at everyone elses photos very much. 

Today I am on a bug kick.  First off is a bug that I don't recognize that was sunning himself on a rock.

And again.

This one is not very zoomed in but I'll post it anyway.  Find the bee...

That's it for now.  Enjoy!!

I enjoyed!  And I found the bee immediately.  I love bees.  I used to be a bee keeper.  I don't recognize the insect either.  A rather homely critter though or should I say 'ugly'?  Good picture of him though.

Sugar

I found the bee. I don't like bees or wasps or yellow jackets which are the wasp family.

Eve, I never saw anything that looked like that.Maybe it is in the scorpian family. I never saw one of them in person either.

8 years ago

I think Donna's right, it looks like a young scorpion maybe.  There are tons of them around here in AZ, have to keep a lookout for them when I hike, as well as rattlers.  Even saw a gila monster once, and they are pretty rare.

I like bees, too, and we sure need them.  Have to keep away from them though since I'm allergic

8 years ago

      These are great, you guys!!  That is one weird looking bug - maybe in the Mantis family????  Sugar, you've outdone yourself with your hawk ... but, the poor squirrel   And I think , the bee pics are cool - doesn't matter if they are perfect or even clear!!  Those are neat pics

I just returned from 2 weeks in Oregon. I have some pics to share, but have been terribly busy since we got home late last night. Kids started school - shopping to be done - what a zoo around here! I need to get some sleep now, but I will return with some new pics to posts tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing everyone!!
