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

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 …

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 –

Why all the close-ups?  It has been either totally overcast or pouring rain since the beginning of the year

The WiFi in the area went down.  Then the snows closed the libraries (the only WiFi location in this land of “dial-up”).  Thus the “2nd week” has become the 2nd and 3rd week.

And that ends the “2nd week” of posting on this blog. It is a real challenge to shoot a photo everyday, but it is lovely to have a break in all the beekeeping work.
