Great Blue Heron fishing at Bell Harbor Marina on 8/3/12.  On this night the Marina was busy with fleet week for Seafair, boats were being escorted in and out past a Navy destroyer by armed Coast Guard boats but this Heron found enough peace to look for and find dinner.  It was also, for the evening, my back yard.  :)  Posted for #backyardbirdingmonday  and #birdphotographymonday   curated by +Celeste Odono, +Ricky L Jones and +David Hemmings

Some of my favorite shots from the Blue Angels airshow over Lake Washington this past weekend.  My first chance to play with my new 400mm f5.6L.  It got me a little closer than I expected!  Posted for the following #aviationmonday #navy #usnavy #blueangels #militarymonday #midairmonday #actionmonday and their curators, +Mike Criss +Adrian Buturca +Jeff Moreau +Joe Kaiser 

On a side note, I have been too busy to properly curate #militarymonday, if there is anyone out there that would like to co-curate with me and take the lead on making a proper page for it among other things, please message me privately.

Enjoy!

I have been watching the sunset and sunrise every workday for several weeks silhouette these beautiful leafless oak trees. Everything is always so crisp and the network of branches on the oak always catch my eye. This morning was no exception. I knew during my commute that I would have a good view this morning so as soon as I parked my car I pulled out my favorite lens for sharpness (100mm f2.8 macro) and snapped away. My only regret is that I didn't check my ISO setting before and found later that it had been set to 800 so there is a little graininess. I am sure I will get another shot soon though...

Once again Monday has nearly come and gone before I have a chance to post or properly kick off #MilitaryMonday curated by me :). Here is my submission. This is from the 2011 Seafair show over Lake Washington in Seattle. We were lucky this year to get a little blue sky. The clouds were breaking just as the Blue Angels started their show.

I took this shot last May at the Vietnam Memorial in DC. I am re-posting on 11/11/11 at 11:11:11 for #VeteransDay in honor of all the soldiers who put their lives and livelihoods on the line every day for our freedom. It would make my day if I could somehow share this shot with the folks in the picture. If you too, feel compelled, please #reshare this shot and encourage others to also #reshare and maybe, if it gets out there enough, we can thank these gentlemen and their families personally.

Again, not really kicking off because of my westerly location but here is my contribution for #MilitaryMonday curated by me (+Joe Kaiser:). This was taken at Arlington National Cemetery and is a view of a Vietnam area of the cemetery.

Living on the West coast of the US will mean that I am always a little behind announcing #MilitaryMonday. Here is my contribution. Can you feel the rumble as he makes a high G turn with afterburners on?
