A gorgeous sunset

Welcome to Tammy Fletcher, who has a new blog, It's Good To Be Us. She and her husband and two dogs are new Hardin Ridge Campground Hosts and bloggers since just this month.  Tammy, tomorrow I'm going to read your first six posts - I got a quick peek at the photos, that looks like a great place to be a host and the fawn you snapped is darling. Good shot! I look forward to following along with you on your adventures. Welcome Aboard, Tammy!  :)

I took some shots of a waterbird during our walk to the lakeside the other day.  I couldn't get close to it to see what kind of bird it is (blue heron?), and when I tried to sneak up on it, away it went.  I often see it standing there at the edge of the water in the afternoons. I should get my camera back early next week, and the good zoom lens will help with this kind of shot. (I just learned that my repaired camera was mailed out three weeks ago and is siting at my mail service.  I had no idea they would repair it this quick. Yeaaaa, Nikon!)



 Took this one late afternoon through the bushes in our site.
See the bird at the water's edge?

We are in a new location nearby for six nights, then we'll return to the campground above the lake, hopefully in the same site.  If it's taken, we'll go across the road to one of the other sites and that will also be good.

During slow blogging days, I like to put little Katie on the post.  Here she is - Katie with her baby - she flips it around, rolls around with it, and when sees me looking at her, she stops and lays on it, like she's embarrassed. :)




 
 I think I ruined her fun! :(

Here's the last sunset photo I got around the lake the other evening - it was gorgeous.  Probably the prettiest sunset I've seen yet.  There was a group of professional photographers from England down the road taking photos of the sunset for a National Geographic TV program in England.  One of the men said they are traveling Route 66 and taking photos for the program.  He had a thick accent, and I think that's what he said.  When it got dark, they left.  Here are a few sunset shots taken close, further, and furthest on my camera zoom lens:




From me and Katie, have a nice weekend, everyone!  :)

  3. Love the sunsets and the bird shot. Can't wait to see the zoom shots. I sent my Nikon in on Aug. 1 and have not even heard if it got there yet! I think it's wonderful you had such great turn around time! Hope I hear about mine soon.

  7. The sunset is stunningly beautiful. Katie is cute with her "baby". Around here, the comment, "where's the baby?" starts a frantic search, dogs running every which way until "the baby" is found.

  11. Great shots.
    Fred had a toy like that, he tore it up pretty good and then was sad when I threw it away. I bought him a new one and he was just as happy with it. They are so much fun aren't they?

  12. Great sunset! And Katie is adorable. My Katie does the same thing as soon as I get the camera she quits the cute behavior. They are such characters. Hope you found another great spot for your 6 (or more) days!
