Foto Funday {week 38 | 2011}

2011-09-11-13-02-31--ccweb

It’s time for another Foto Funday, and I’m leading off with a few photos from the 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony we attended in Sandpoint last Sunday.

Our friend, Mike, from New York, proudly carries the American flag amongst the fine-looking color guard.

As always, I delighted in the magnificent sound of Albeni Pipes and Drums!

While at the city beach for the ceremony, I got a shot of our own miniature Lady Liberty on the pier.

I’ve been trying to learn a little each day about my new Canon Rebel, & had an opportunity to learn to photograph one of my fav subjects, the moon, this past week when the full Harvest Moon made her appearance. My first shot was using settings approximately the same as what had worked on my old Sony camera. I quickly found these settings were not going to work for me – no details of the moon and a reflected image in each shot as well.

After trying several different settings with no better results, I came inside and googled “photographing the moon”. This gave me some recommended settings and I got some much better shots.

I even caught the moon as she was setting over the Selkirk Mountains the *next morning* out front.

Out our back door I enjoyed watching some beautiful whitetail does enjoying the rosehips off our wild rose bushes.

Our wild turkeys have been showing up daily, sometimes more than once, and enjoying the cracked corn Jim throws out the back door for them. I even caught one of the youths lying down to eat! Smile

Then this tom decided to hop up on the porch to munch some sunflower seeds, and when he saw his reflection in the patio door, he decided to strut his stuff and intimidate that “other” tom in the reflection! It was hilariously fun to watch!

Have a really wonderful Sunday afternoon, and be sure to always smile at your own reflection! Open-mouthed smile

Blessings to you!
