This has been one whirlwind of a year for me. It seems that if I wasn’t someplace else every month then there was some event (good and bad) that needed to be dealt with. And here it is almost Thanksgiving. Time not only flew by, it was going at warp speed!
There are so many things I wanted to share that I started out posting and then something new came up and I zigged and zagged and well… many posts never had a fair go of it. Oh a few were completed but more than enough were given a moment or two on the blog and then were shoved back in the line by newer moments. Heck! There are so many more images from our Scotland 2018 trip that haven’t even been edited let alone posted.
I really need to correct that and perhaps when things slow down here (now watch me complain about things being slow then LOL) somewhat I will try and give those moments their proper due. But that ain’t gonna be this month… and next month may not be it either!
So let me retrace my photo clicks and see where I need to eventually focus my attentions. Currently working on my art show (the big day is 11/21) and then there will be Thanksgiving followed closely by Christmas. I covered all of Halloween, the Caribbean festival, Arizona and the Pride Parade. I still have more of the day with the birds to share, tons more of Colorado and Utah to get to, bits of New York and probably some leftovers from California. Phew!
Perhaps instead of bemoaning how far behind I am I should celebrate that this year has been an amazing whirlwind where I’ve seen and done so many new things. Think positive, Dashfield! And with that I find myself staring at the computer monitor and saying “Yeah, but what image are you posting today?” Whoops! I will go back to the Rocky Mountains for just a moment here and then – I hope – I will finish sharing with you the owls, hawks and falcons from the Audubon Center.
This photo was taken from one of the pullover areas along the Trail Ridge Road that goes across the Rocky Mountain National Park. We had left Grand Lake that morning and were heading back to Estes Park so this image was taken before the prior post image. Notice the female elks taking a break in the image. This was just a few weeks before the rutting season so it’s possible that some of these elk are pregnant with new residents for the park.
Stay warm if you are in an area that’s experiencing winter entirely too early. Good thing I like wearing flannel.
