Happy 239th Birthday, America! https://egearingphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/7/happy-239th-birthday-america-1
As far as this shot goes, it's a compilation of two pictures I took..  The flag is our very own that we fly at the sprawling Gearing compound here in Georgetown, TX and the other is of a bald eagle that we saw at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center outside of Girdwood, AK from our fun trip to Alaska last year.  I just took the liberty of masking the eagle on top of the flag and lo and behold, the perfect 4th of July pic, without the fireworks of course. Maybe I'll get the fireworks into one for next year!

Denver Performing Arts Complex #2 https://egearingphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/6/denver-performing-arts-complex-2-1 Denver Performing Arts Complex in Denver, CO.  On one of our last nights there, I decided to go shoot this place because there were some cool angles in there and it was close to our VRBO where we were staying.  Now, our good friend Eugene works there as their manager of security ops, I believe, right Eugene?  :-)  Pretty awesome!

Moon Balloon https://egearingphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/11/moon-balloon Election Night Thoughts

I don't like to get political with my little blog here, but since last night was such a huge night in the democratic process of this great experiment known as the United States of America, I thought I would just put my two cents in.  Last night America spoke and we have re-elected our current president.  The system worked and now we'll have to see where it leads.  The right to vote is a valuable thing and exercising that right is what this is all about.  If the outcome is what you wanted, congratulations.  If it is not, better luck next time.  Either way, I hope you voted.  Otherwise, you really have no say.  Now that it is over, we must pray for our president and more importantly, we must pray for our country.

Moon Balloon
 
Today's photo is in the same vein as the last few I have posted.  While the previous ones were of hot air balloons as they were being raised, this is one that is actually in the air!  I captured this shot on the way to Estes Park from Denver last month.  I really liked how it floated in the sky with the moon by it's side.

More Fiery Balloon Shots

Here are a couple more balloon shots I took from the Georgetown Airfest this past weekend.  I really enjoyed watching the balloons inflate.  They brought out the little kid in me!  Nothing better that those burners shooting flames and making that loud whooshing noise when they light up!

Forgive these shots a little for they have a bit of noise in them.  It was still relatively dark and foggy when I took them so I had the ISO cranked up a bit.  But overall, I still like them.  I hope you do to!

Hot Air https://egearingphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/11/hot-air 3rd annual Georgetown Airfest.  There are lots of things to see at the event to include olde WWII era planes as well as helicopters, classic cars, etc.  The very first thing that was supposed to happen on the schedule today was a balloon launch.  Well, the airport was socked in with fog this morning so the balloons weren't able to go up.  However, two balloon owners were kind enough to inflate their balloons and let people take photos and ask questions.  It was pretty interesting watching the process of blowing one up.  They first spread the canopy out on the ground, then initially blow it up with a big old fan.  When it has enough air but is still too heavy to get off the ground, they pump in some hot air from the burners on top of the basket with a few quick blasts and the thing stands right up in just a few seconds.  Pretty cool!  I'm sorry they weren't able to lift off, but it was fun to see it all happen.

Siamese Twins https://egearingphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/10/siamese-twins Garden of the Gods.  This one is kind of off the beaten path, but I think it is one of the more interesting formations to see there.  Also, just behind it lies Pike's Peak way off in the distance.  I should've tried to find an angle with both of them in the shot, but I'm happy with this one.

I have a couple more shots of the Twins from different perspectives that I'll have to put out some other time.   I'll probably save those for some time when I'm out of fresh material. ;-)

As always, I hope you enjoy the shot and come again!

Denver Center for the Performing Arts https://egearingphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/10/denver-center-for-performing-arts The complex has several different theaters to see Broadway-type shows as well as restaurants to dine in.  Also, the parking garage is situated right next to it and is covered so you don't have to brave the elements to get from your car to the theater.  You can see the stairways for the parking garage here on the right.  If we ever go back, we might have to see a show there.

Hope you enjoy the shot and thanks for stopping by!

This is an HDR that I converted to a monochrome.  I tried to "Ansel Adams" it up a little even though I think he did mostly black and whites.  Something about shooting mountains and clouds that just calls for either.

 I hope you enjoy it and thanks for dropping by!
