I haven’t run off

Howdy:  Sorry I haven’t posted a while.  You’d think someone who loves photograpy would have something new to offer.  Well, I actually posted the same image of our cat, Ming, twice, athough under different titles.  How odd is that?  Do you think I’m losing it?   I can’t believe I did it …  I did and it’s done.

Anyway, I will be out and shooting new images during the upcoming fall presentation.  We have some beautiful fall scenery in Central Illinois and I’ll be bringing it to you as ususal.

Thanks for being continuing followers of, Elm Drive Images.

These Doves rest in our Lilac Bush in between feedings at the Bird Feeder.  How’d that Goose get in there?

Spring is coming to the Midwest

Backyard Flowers, Bushes and Trees are budding – in some cases flowers are blooming –  throughout the Midwest.  The Squirrel thinks so!  The grass is greening up quickly and a few neighbors have already mowed even though it’s very early in the season.

Changing Fall Color’s in Early Morning Light

Changing Fall Colors in Early Morning Light_wm

I shot this image this morning.  I added just a touch of, “saturation,” to the changing leaves. It, inadvertently, made the power pole almost presentable – for a change.

Illinois River Valley 2013 Enhanced

A few weeks ago I loaded this image.  Yesterday I discovered an editing program called, “Aviary,” (it’s free) and was astounded at its strength.  My original post didn’t even show the grass in the lower left hand corner…let alone its color.  It sharpened the picture and allowed me to bring forth greater color and tone.  For my friends, this editing program is for phones and tablets.  “I am not being paid to push this program!”
