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.

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.

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

Water frozen in motion fascinates me. It’s something we can’t see but the camera can.

Wet Fur Can Be Lovely (if a bit smelly)

This is my livestock guard dog’s fur – which gives me a chance to plug livestock guard dogs: the solution to living in a somewhat noisy peace with wildlife.

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.

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.

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).

Motion on Motion

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? )
