So much for posting images once a week or once a month in 2012.
Beekeeping took up too much time last year, but then more people buy honey than buy photographs.
I kept taking pictures all year
I kept formatting them for the web until June.
I gave up posting June 8 — here’s the last images — to June 17.
There will be no descriptions or commentary – that tedious inputting is what caused a halt to the postings.

thus ends this project…. oh, I’ll soon do another photography blog — a gallery, not tied to dates….

Thanks for following… Karen

Rain – it makes one catch up on all the “inside” jobs.  As you’ll see, it’s been a week of rain here.

Thimbleberry In the Rain

Thimbleberries are in bloom right now.  Sometimes the bees work them, but not in the rain.  They produce a wonderfully tart berry, but you have to eat them when you pick them because they are too soft and too good to carry around.

Happy Water

 

That’s this week’s “photo of water a day” from photographer Karen E. Bean, of Maple Falls, WA (that would be me).  I’m glad to be back on a weekly posting schedule.

 

 

 

My June vow is to not keep putting off putting these on line.  It should be calmer at the apiary.  Of course that’s when everything goes haywire, eh?

I decided to post going backwards in time: May 31 to May 1.  That seems to be the age in which we live.

At The Northfork (Beer Shrine, not River)

A family celebration, and the best place to do that is at the Northfork Beer Shrine (and wedding chapel – no joke, the owner can officiate at your wedding).  This is the best microbrewery I’ve ever found, the food is great, and all the folks are wonderful.  If you’re in the Mt. Baker area, it’s worth a visit.

Another Rainy Day

I look back on these and think, but it is a bit sunnier than that here.  It’s just that when it’s sunny, I’m out in the bee yards and only get to walk when it’s getting dark (or shoot in the cabin after dark).  With the coming of summer – oh please, soon I hope – there will be more sunny shots.  Of course I’m writing this in the library on a rainy day….

Those are the photos for May from me, photographer Karen E. Bean, of Brookfield Farm in Maple Falls, Washington (Walking-Wild.com).  I truly hope I can now go back to posting once a week – bees and weather willing.

Ah yes, I do know we’re now in May.  It’s been busy in the bee yard, so I’m playing catch up in my postings.  This is the land of dial-up, so I must go to the library to post, and the library is never open when I finish my apiary work….  So here’s the collection of water images from April 2 to 30, 2012

Delay, delays, so this and the next is a bit of catching up.  I’ll work from most recent to earlier in the year.

Seattle Washington: Fremont Ship Canal from Water Images 52 Weeks : photographer Karen E. Bean

Ship Canal At Dawn: Seattle, Washington

We work the Seattle’s Fremont Market every Sunday.  Ian goes every week, I go on the first Sunday of the week (it’s a 2 1/2 hour drive, but it’s our best market).  It works – Ian hates doing internet work, I hate rising at 3am… To each their skills at our farm.

It's A Rush

 

It is indeed a rush to get caught up on the postings.

Taking the images is fun, if challenging on some days.
Working with the images is fun.

Posting the images — now that is a bit of a pain – perhaps if I didn’t get so behind it would be fine.

Weekly, yes, weekly (I hope)

Now it’s off to prepare to split some hives and walk the pack goats …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I got a little delayed, thus 2 weeks of images posted on one day.  Hopefully, I’ll soon get back to a posting each week.

A Dark And Stormy Day

Oh, when will it stop raining????  I walk my pack goats, and pet goats, every day, as long as it’s not pouring.  Lately, it’s been down the road and around, because it’s a drag walking though the forest when it’s really really wet (the goats make this clear to me).

I like this, but I have to admit I had some help.  I was perched on top of our 15 foot tall culvert, shooting down into the creek when Mojo decided that what was really needed was a bit of camera shake.  He was right, but being nudged by Mojo on a wet surface above a steep fall was still a bit shaking – for me and the camera:

Not part of project but this is Mojo with a can he dug up from the clear-cuts that surround us:

Flowing Library

This is how I often see my library, which is the closest WiFi to my farm.  It’s only open a few days a week, and never for more than a few hours: rural Washington.  But the WiFi often works from the front of the truck…Thus I often post from the front seat of my pick up on rainy days (oh when will the rains end? )

Break Through

I do try to keep Sal from jumping in frozen ponds, or walking on them.  Ruins the shot, and I don’t want to pull her out.

That’s it for my Water Images 2012 Project this week.  We went from rain to beautiful sun, and back to rain.  Never a dull moment weather-wise in Maple Falls, Washington –
