Did I Mention That I Love My Camera?

Yesterday was a busy day, program upgrades on a server caused problems with getting mail. So I had to figure out what was wrong with that. Up grade in cell phone required being on the phone with support to get the phones switched over, seems like I got the new employee that kept having to find out what they needed to do. Later than what I had planned, I managed to get outside, walk the yard and finally get it mowed as that it's suppose to rain today. I heard on the news this morning that it's already raining in Greensburg and they were watching the area for lightening strikes. So how are you doing in Greensburg, Anita?

The following pictures I took some time back, shortly after I'd gotten my new camera. They're all taken from a moving car. There's a bridge near where the one below was shot that be call the bumpty-bump bridge. I have taken this route specifically to take people across this bridge. It's like a mini roller coaster ride.
The clock below sits in the yard of someone's home.
This is the quaint little town where house above resides. Several of the private homes used to be businesses.

Roads that go on forever, disappearing over the horizon.
I think I was going for some cloud shots in the one below.
Windmills are always a favorite for photographers in these parts.
Lots of burnt off fields this time of year. I've got some sky shots of burning fields from you airplane trip.
Anita, this ones for you! I wasn't sure if I got a good shot of it or not since were going by so fast.
Lonely llama grazing in a pasture.

Just some pictures that I wanted to share and thought today would be a good day to do that. Tomorrow I should have another entry of my OR - CA adventure for you.

OH! I love the barn! :) They're all really great pictures... I like the one of the town, too! I'm not sure I'd like the clock in my yard, reminding me of time going by!

We're not doing bad, it was a relatively small storm and was moving quickly, so we didn't have to put up with it for long... the weather alert radio alarm has gone off probably 6 or 7 times, lots of severe storms still in the area... makes me a little nervous, but it's driving Isaiah crazy! "We're not having another tornado are we mom?" I must have heard that 20 times this morning... *sigh* I'm not going to lie and say "no", because I don't know that... but any other answer doesn't help him much!

I'm glad you all enjoyed my pictures. I've fixed the two that weren't clickable, I don't know why sometimes it doesn't save them properly.

Anita - we had some pretty scary lightening for a while this afternoon. Then just rain. I don't have a weather radio so all the warnings I get is either on TV or if a real threat our city siren will go off.

Bob - I've got a new lens to try out, EF100mm F2.8 Macro USM. I want to get out and shoot some plants but it's been raining.

Carolyn - I really like road and trail shots, oh! also rail. I've got some railroad shots I need to post sometime.

All of the FEMA trailers came with weather radios... and we get to keep them when we move out... We are all very nervous of the weather here these days...
