Lookin out my back door.

 Lunar eclipse? Heck Yah !
   I got up and went outside, it was 4 degrees and breezy, the eclipse had started at 6:30,
and wasn't especially interesting. After going back inside to make coffe, I decided to photograph it anyway.  Right from my living room, out a window. Even from inside, my hands started complaining and I evidently didn't get the focus right. Doh !
But the colors did show brighter, and it was worth it.

  All the times I have photographed the moon, I can't say that I've gotten a good shot yet.

                  I must say, I have the most
                                  interesting back yard.  :C)

  Also, through reading up on this coming eclipse, I found an interesting bit of software
that you might appreciate. It;s called Stellarium, a whole sky interactive viewer.  Put in your own co ordinates to personalize it and enjoy.
Even the satalites, (with names and information), go shooting through the sky.
 Oh yah, and it's free.
  Stellarium.org   should take you there.
  Ciao for now...........

Rollin On The Umpquah

  Yep, that's right, the Umpquah. In Oregon. 
  click on the picture to sh
 I took a road trip to see a high school buddy before the weather turned. 
Beautiful drive, nice weather. The Umpquah River flows through the area and we followed it to the coast.
 Quite the fertile area as flowers were still blooming and lawns were still being mowed, and in Idaho there's not any leaves left on the trees.
The Umpquah was alive with salmon headed inland, a half dozen could be seen anytime.
As contrast, here's a video from today. I'm learning the video aspects of my new camera, and realize it takes some specialized gear.   (which I don't have yet)
So bear through the shakes, it will get better.

Dang small size, but I just read Google's license agreement, and that just fuels me to get my own site, and leave this place.
 See ya later.

End of Summer

Just a quick update. 
Tater Tot sent me a link of the latest video she was in. 
 Dancing at the Hillsong College and enjoying life.




She still looks good in a pink tutu and slippers.

 I just posted on my nature log about a crew of sheep shearers I met  in the Sawtooth Valley. Clicking the sheep will take you there.

Two Timing

Well, I've been two timing, with another blog.
 I added a blog for my Master Naturalist class, a journal type of log/blog
 It's got a link on this page, on the right, at the top.

Otherwise it's  Chuckslog

 And no, no Spring in sight yet. Daily snow showers, 2 feet of snow on the ground still.
