Wanting to see what the camera could do and if I could get some action shots  - with the Fourth of July coming up, where better than a good, old fashioned rodeo? That and my personal aim was to try capturing the moment.
  I use a D5300 and a Nikkor 18-200 mm lens on auto -focus & used program & shutter priority for the vast majority. I was impressed with the capture ability of the camera -as anyone knows who's been to a rodeo, they move fast.  *Suggestions are welcome*
    The bottom right is a bullrider flying off after being tossed by the bull & I thought it was amazing how it caught the lasso just as it curved around the calf's hoof on the calf roper.
I wasn't really not sure where to categorize these?

Oh my goodness ...  *sniff* 
Commencement is always a special time, but for one family, Saturday's Idaho State University graduation ceremony was especially meaningful. Their son was not there to receive the degree he worked so hard for. Instead, his faithful service dog walked in his place.

Un ejemplo de fe se encontró en la pared de un campo de concentración. En ella un prisionero grabó las siguientes palabras:
Creo en el sol, aunque no brille.
Creo en el amor, aunque no lo expresen.
Creo en Dios, aunque no hable.
Procuro imaginar a la persona que trazó estas palabras.
Trato de imaginarme la mano esquelética que agarró el vidrio roto o la piedra con la que marcó la pared.
Trato de imaginar sus ojos entrecerrados que procuraron grabar cada letra en la oscuridad.
¿Que manos pueden haber grabado tal convicción? ¿Qué ojos pudieron haber visto lo bueno en medio de tal horror?
Hay sólo una respuesta: Ojos que escogieron ver lo invisible.
Padre, Jesus te pido recíbelos a todos ellos en la felicidad de tu Reino, por mediación de María. Amen

Eagles taken at the zoo. Their wings had been injured, so they were taken in and cared for by the zoo. I'm still learning the settings on the camera, so this was a lot of fun with some great photo opportunities.

It's about balance and common sense---except when it comes to animals, then it's up for grabs.
Introduction
         
         
  
         
         
You'll find almost anything here. I'm a non-traditional Christian, I don't adhere to any specific church dogma (I would probably say sort of a New Age Christian). I enjoy nature and hiking, photography..not that I'm that good, but I love doing it. (Note banner and me sitting on a rock in the mountains on a trail taking a picture), I am a bit of a 'tree-hugger'- I don't think the world is in imminent peril of melting down from global warming, but I do think it's in our best interests to take better care.
 I love animals, & am interested animal rights and rescue-and would like to become more active and involved. I'm totally around my dog's paws.
 I'm pretty moderate and independent, but in my politics run a bit more conservatively.  Socially, I don't care who you are, I don't care what color, gender, sexual orientation, religion or even whether you're from Planet Earth (just in case any extra-terrestrials really are wandering around ;)  ), what I care about is content of character. I won't defend bigoted stupidity or violence because of any of the above--sorry nobody's entitled.
