Archive for February, 2012

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.

Stepping In It

The hazards of trying to find a new shot for this project – Did I find one that day?  Nope, none I liked – thus the soggy boot.

Clearly : Way too much time playing with my very old photoshop program.  These are 2 water reflections combined and messed with.

Where's The Heater?

She loves water – warm, icy, it doesn’t matter…however, she often seems to wonder why she’s jumped in when she realizes there’s no warm room to head for in the woods.

Still working on (ok, playing with) photoshop – It’s raining, there’s no sun – time to turn to the digital world to make dull shots more fun.

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? )

Water Drops on Hemlock

Sometimes it’s just fun to play with all those filters.

In The Wake

A nice day at the Seattle Fremont Market, where we sell honey every Sunday.  But each time I walked the van guard dog along the ship canal, the sun went away.

Sallie and water – you can’t keep them apart

Sal Swirled

As I said….it’s handy for photos on cold wet days.  I take the dogs and goats for a walk, we pass water (not an issue around here) and Sal jumps in…

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 –

With this post, I’m closer to my goal of posting the one-a-day water images every week.   I think it was luck.

That’s one of the pack goat pastures in the background (Brookfield Farm, Maple Falls, WA).
The goats are behind me, out of shot.  (I hadn’t cleared them with their agent)

High Water Dogs : Water Images : One A Day Feb 1, by Karen Edmundson Bean Maple Falls, Washington

Dogs Willing and the Creek Don't Rise

Sallie (van guard dog) and Mojo (livestock guard dog) wondered why neither I nor the goats (behind me once again. I must speak with their agent) are willing to cross one of the two creeks on our farm (Brookfield Farm in Maple Falls, Washington).  It’s not art : it’s family, which is an art in itself.

Bubbling Waters

All the creeks at the farm are high, beautiful, and very, very cold these days.
