This is one of those images that brings down the blood pressure about 10 points, Tommy!
Love the mist, the contrast of bright orange with pale blue, and that fisherman, alone with his thoughts.

Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments, I appreciate them very much. Yes Ron the color should actually be better over-all I think. I think the reason why the color is so good here is the trees are right up against the spring branch and have had the luxury of excess water and cool temps. I shot in Shannon County today and the color wasn't bearly as far along. Happy shooting everyone! :) Tommy

Thanks so much Laura, I really appreciate the comments and popcorn! Yeah this is my eye of the tiger capture. My one hit wonderf so to speak lol. I can imagine myself at 80 talking to the great grandkids. "Well back in 2008, I took this picture in the freezing cold where I had to walk barefoot up hill both ways....". Maybe I need to put a little more thought in to that story? lol. Thanks again Laura. Hope you have a fantastic week!

No! Story sounds great so far. Be sure and tell them it was a 3 mile walk to the car, too. OH, and that you had to pass by the same place that Big Foot had just been sighted, saw him but your camera battery was dead! HA!

It's this very image I can see as an oil painting and also hanging in offices all over the world! Truly!

We camp in the Rockies all next week! Yipeeeeeee! 1st trip out.

Wow am I behind. Sorry to have missed so many kind comments. I have a tendency to miss comments on past entries. Maybe I should check the photo numbers in email before doing a mass delete. I've been doing prep work on a small hayfeild I'm having converted to a native glade as part of a 10 year prairie rehab project with the Missouri Conservation Department Laura. It's cool I get to pick the native flowers and grasses used, but the spraying to kill the fescue and non-native species is a bit of work. Another plus is that's one pretty large area I won';t fill tempted to put in any new gardens. For some reason I have no restraint, and should have someone take away my tiller. I wonder if they have addiction support groups for gardening? "Hi my name is Tommy and I'm a gardening addict".

Group Response "Hi Tommy"...HA!

Yes of course they have a group for people like you. It's called...Oh wait. It's an Anonymous support group. They made me swear not to say it out loud when I was at my first meeting!!! You will receive an invitation in the mail shortly. You DO have a P.O. Box don't you??? HA!

What an HONOR for you Tommy that the Dept of Conservation has awarded you and what an honor for THEM to have YOU! WOW!!!
Hey, did you try my recipe for those nasty beetles? Did it work? If not we need to figure out how to Mass Delete THOSE suckers and not your fan mail! Hehe!!!

Good to see you around!

Gorgeous image, Tommy. Just reading some of your comments here and I really had you figured as a gardening expert with all the gorgeous flowers you have on your BP site. Just bet your "home place" is gorgeous!

Thanks so much Laura and Shirley. The remedy worked Laura. Two weeks of munching and the Japanese beetles were nowhere to be found. I hope I never see them again. The rehab project will make life easier on animals like quail and rabbits, which have a hard time evading coyotes and foxes in the thick fescue that is in most farm feilds anymore.This year it didn't look as good as it should have Shirley. We had a really weird super warm Spring, and all the trees that were supposed to bloom staggered, bloomed at exactly the same time. I've never had allergies so bad. I was part of a garden tour early this Summer. I wound up cheating and used a weedeater and mulch to hide the fact I was so far behind keeping everything tidy. Have a wonderful day you two and happy shooting. :) Tommy
