Happy August 1. Happy long weekend to my Canadian friends. And a good friend is celebrating a birthday. Birthday wishes coming your way.
This week’s collection is mixture of images. There was no travelling, spent some time in Studio 13. Practicing with my Lensbaby Composer. Our flowers are starting to bloom so I have lots to practice on. I’ve included a few barrel racing and rodeo ones taken the weekend of July 18. The one of the steer wrestle did quite well on Instagram. My assistant the Trail Camera caught an encounter between the resident fox and our visiting raccoon.
I’m thinking of creating a “Western Images” page of rodeo, barrel racing, western accessories and horses. And a “Treasures and Keepsake” page. I’ve included a few of these shots in this week’s collection.
Another week in the book. It was a hot humid one here. The Boy and I spent a lot of time in the house. Sunday wasn’t too bad, which was a good thing as I spent a few more hours photographing the rodeo slack. Lots of pictures of cowgirls and cowboys riding gorgeous horses. The trail camera did an awesome job of capturing our deer and the foxes that share space with us. I did manage to get pictures myself of a doe and later two fawns. Due to the high temperatures we spent some time creating in Studio 13. I hope you enjoy this week’s photos. We had fun taking them and editing them. Till next week!
This week marks the half way point of July. Summer is going by really fast. Most days the weather doesn’t realize it’s summer. Nights and mornings are pretty cool. The Boy and I went on a rode trip and broadened our horizons and add new content. Found some more wall murals in a small town. These are pretty old but I think they are still wonderful. My assistant the trail camera took some wonderful shots of three whitetail does. I’ve included quite a few of them as there are so beautiful. Such big eyes. The first rodeo since Convid9 appeared happened this weekend. I went and photographed some of the slack Saturday AM. It was a night rodeo so that makes it a no go for me. I’ve included a few from the day. Nice horses. Good riders. Hope you enjoy this weeks collection.
Happy Sunday! My week went fast, how was yours. This week we have some action shots. Flying ducks and bees; running coyote and deer. My assistant the Trail camera caught some great ones of the deer that live in our pasture. We are pretty dry here and a caught Quill having a dust bath. Think he was trying to impress the ladies. One evening we had an unwanted guest on our front lawn. This shot was taken thru the window as I wasn’t going outside. Went on a road trip but the only shots I have from it are the ones of the mule deer doe in action. The driver didn’t see the photo opportunities I did and wasn’t inclined to stop. I counted about ten shots that would have fit in here. Oh well. Hope you enjoy these. I’m hoping to spend some time in Studio 13 being creative this week.
Come back next week and see what manifested.
Happy Sunday. We hope you had a good week. The Boy and I did. For a while I’ve been planning putting a photo studio in the barn. It’s not very elaborate but I am having fun with it. The Boy lays and watching as I change background, bring out more props, make adjustments, probably thinking going for a walk taking pictures would be more fun! It stays cool in the barn, so it is a good place for both of us to hang out when it gets hot out or windy! On Tuesday a friend/ photographer came over and we practiced with props and backgrounds. She has a very creative mind and wonderful props. I hope she visits again! We used old calendars for backgrounds and they worked wonderful. If you have old calendars lying around needing a home, please contact me. Prairiewindphotography3@gmail.com I promise they will be treated well. My iris plant is providing blooms now. I spent some time trying different background with one of the blossoms. Scrapbooking pages work great for these backgrounds. A while ago I acquired a Lensbaby Composer with various optics. I did some practicing with it once I assembled the studio. I am looking forward to doing more. I already have some favourite optics. The Boy and I went on a road trip. Came across the goose and duck family. Imagine a family of nine. The wild roses are in full bloom. Each morning as we walk I find more to photography. Soon they will be gone and something will take their place. My assistant – the trail camera caught the curious young buck. We have three bucks and a doe that visit often. The only credit I can take for this one is positioning the camera!
I hope you enjoy this week’s collection. See you next week!
This season of photo opportunies has been pretty well nixed. Everything cancelled. Spring in the country can provide lots of photography but sometimes Mother Nature is slow in providing them. Around where I live we’ve had a lot of wind and it’s been cold. The crocuses finally covered the hills, now the lilacs are blooming here. My trail camera managed to pull up some of the slack and recorded shots I never would have been able to capture. However, the animals have been slow in returning also.
I hope you enjoy theses shots of two young bucks, my assistant the trail camera was able to catch. Hopefully we see more of them.
