I saw this flower at a friend's home and thought it was quite lovely looking.  It reminded me of a Columbine but I knew it was not that.  I found out it is called Angel Earring Fuchsia.  I may have to try to grow it this spring though it seems it is picky about light and water.  Needs to be damp and in shade.  It will take heat so that's good for my area.

It's Hump Day today and we get to see the sun as well, it's been a while since we started the day with a clear sky.  I took this image earlier this year and while these birds are what I think of more as "wild" birds they act like the regular little birds that come to visit.  The wild Turkeys come to the yard to visit the feeder as well, they just can't get up into it so they forage around on the ground.  This male was strutting his stuff for 3 females who are just out of frame and they were not as interested in him as I was.  😁

The day started out dreary once again.  I needed this to brighten things up.  A lovely summer day with Dame's Rocket in bloom and a Red Admiral butterfly enjoying the blossoms fit that need well.

I was looking back through some old photos and processing a few over the weekend.  I found this one of a beautiful scene in Rocky Mountain National Park and decided to share it.  It would be my dream to live where I could have this view every day.  I find the mountains very beautiful and relaxing.

So today I am sharing an image of two of the things I love to photograph in one shot.  I shared one from a different angle a while back.  This is the last train of the day arriving in Silverton, Colorado to let it's passengers off to walk around the town for a couple of hours like I was doing.  You can see in the background a couple of waterfalls that were being created by the snow melt that was still going on in July in the mountains.

Happy Veteran's Day to those in the US.  I took this image a couple of weekends ago at the railroad I get to play at and I liked how it came out.  I used a new program to help bring the sky color out which turned out rather washed out in the original.  It really made it rather rich looking and made the Autumn colors stand out.

Posting early today due to being on holiday from work.  I haven't shared just a straight flower macro in a while, usually has a butterfly or bee on it.  This is a lovely Water Lily from my pond this past summer.  It reminds me of much warmer days instead of the mid 40s we are having right now.
