Sunday Challenge " The Letter F "

Well Ed, for some reason I am finding these challenges to be just that. You are really making me work for them...but I'm guessing that's the idea:)
So there's a bit of Fog - a little Frost - a small Fire and a lot of tail Flagging.
F'S For Blog

That's it for me. Check out Sunday Stills to see some more F's.

Check out this great MSN video: Divers save dolphin tangled in fishing line

Amazing Creatures, why people want to kill them is even  harder to understand after viewing this.

Chuckle For The Day (Real Or Fake)

I couldn't get this video where I wanted it so it will have to stay where it is.When I saw this video I have to say it made me laugh....I guess pun intended happens when you  are put it nicely...not nice.It aso made me think though....cause of the title...was it revenge or is he crazy as wife states? The things people put out there never ceases to amaze me..although I have to wonder if that was real or just made for the few moments of fame????? Whatever if it's real I'm betting the wife never leaves her computer accessible again.

Sunday Challenge "Big Sky"

I liked this challenge Big Sky, we had to use the rule of thirds...made it a bit more challenging. I didn't get far from home so I tried to work with something I see every day. I caught this same shot at different times of the day and weather conditions and also portions, I hope I changed it up enough so as not to be too boring.
This is in the wee hours of the morning ...just starting to get light.





Well that's it for me. We have had no beautiful sunrises or sets for a very long time...just bits of color here and there. I'm grateful anyhow because when there are no clouds I see this every morning on my way to turn on the coffee. I did see some pretty spectacular Big Skies on other blogs though...go check em out at Sunday Stills. Catch ya all later.

Sunday Challenge " Old Barns"

This week is a good one, I like old barns, there are a few right around home but the sun was shining it was so nice I loaded up the dogs and went for a tour to see what we could find. I knew there were some not to far away and so this is what I came up with. This one is right across the highway from us.


This one is about a 1/2 Mile up the road.


I thought I would start the next pics with this. If these guys don't do something with this barn soon ....they will be the No Barn Ranch. This barn has been declining slowly but surely over the years. It is quite old.... it will be a shame if it falls down.





Well guys that's it for me.....I'm sorry if I bored you with my barns...I went just a little barn crazy. Anyhow I'm outta here. I will be checking you all out. I'm thinking there is going to be some cool barn shots out there.

It took me a long time to do this post, good thing because when I saw the video I was so angry that had I posted at the time I would have looked ( sounded) like a total fool. I may still.  You will have to watch the video and read what I wrote below to decide that for yourself.

To make things clear I am not judging whether or not there should be Wild Horse Management. I am openly and with disgust judging the methods displayed in this video. I also have to admit that I don't know much about the laws regarding the Wild Horses. I don't live in those areas where they may affect my life so I am somewhat neutral with an opinion about that.. however I believe there is an absolute right way and a so wrong way to go about achieving some kind of management program. What I saw in this video makes me sick. Here I will address the bastards in this video as if they might actually see this. You people are lower than pond scum and so to the people that would allow you to behave in such  a brutal.....cruel....and sadistic manner. I am not in the habit of wishing bad things on people but I truly hope Karma comes back to bite your sorry asses. If that is what you have come up with as a management program you really need to start over and come up with a better solution. I find it very difficult to understand why these horses are not being treated as  a treasured part of your countries history. I mean really if not for the horse all of your forefathers would still be trying(hoofing it) to make it out west. This video is just another sad reminder that the human race really hasn't evolved nearly as much as we would like to believe. We are probably the most savage species on the planet.It's not just the Wild Horses it is the Baby Seals - The Dolphins - Whales and People... on and on it goes. I don't know when the vast majority started turning a blind eye but I surely believe it is this that is hugely responsible for how callous and cold the human race has become. OK that's it I just had to get that said, also I want it to be understood that I don't believe the whole human race sucks but I'm starting to worry that the ones that don't are becoming a minority.On a brighter note...while checking out some blogs the other day I landed on the Pioneer Woman ( haven't been there for awhile) Lo and Behold I came across a post by The Marlboro Man( In case you didn't know the Husband) it was about Wild Horses. This is something I did not know about and so I cannot say how many Ranchers do this but for every evil maybe there is a good. These guys care for  Wild Horses 500 - at times 3200. Now I have to say they get paid for it but who cares why.....actually I believe he said yes they get paid but he also said it's fun. I think I might have also heard a whisper of pride in what they maybe they are proud to be able to preserve some of their heritage. Kudos to you and any others like you...maybe there will be some Wild Horses around for the Grandkids and Great Grandkids to see and hear stories about.

Sunday Challenge ' One Tree"

Well done Ed, this was really hard ....or at least you had me scrambling until I went in and saw your pic in Sunday Stills. I thought I had to get one tree with no others in the shot....turned out to be near impossible so I thought I would cheat and get tree pieces on their own.


And this little gem, as it turned out after uploading it I see there are some trees in the background...


And then I thought hmmmm how can I get one tree by itself ....and so I came up with this
001 is a itself. OK I know not really in the spirit of the I went to Sunday Stills saw Ed's pic and went ahhh Ok I can do this and so without further ado I came up with this. One tree by itself.



Well that's it for me and that's as good as it gets without leaving the property. Now I wish I had taken those pics of the odd (and alone) trees I've seen while out riding.....20/20.Well Ed I have to say it was a good tough challenge....and I fail...oh well next time. I could bite my tongue because when Shirley said what the challenge was I said oh that's an easy one......How wrong can ya be....I guess my choices speak volumes. Well I'm off to see what you all came up with.
