A new header picture

When I walked today, I took my camera along; I wanted something a little greener than the picture that was atop my blog.  I took several shots, but most of them didn't lend themselves to cropping.  


I took this shot toward the back of the house; unfortunately, it's far too dark.  Plus the dreaded monstrosity built by the neighbors next door shows on the right, although I could have cropped that out.  


I rather like this one of a stump beside our walking path, but to crop it and make it long and narrow would ruin the picture.  


Sadie in the mayflowers.  Mayflowers are supposed to be an indication that it's time for morel mushrooms.  Again, it wouldn't crop well.  And that tangle of trees in the background isn't really picturesque.  
The picture I settled on, the one now on my header, looks north across the Missouri River.  In fact, if you look closely, you can see the river in the lower middle part of the picture behind a line of trees; once the trees leaf out, it won't be visible.

That's beautiful. Can you see that from your yard?

Not from our yard, Tango, but from our pasture.

I like it. But, then, I liked all of them. I thought that tangle of trees was very picturesque.

hey donna... i met a photographer years ago, he said something that stuck...:"some days i have to take hundreds of pictures to get one good photograph out of that day"

the theory works a lot better with a digital camera ,,,lol and i can delete all the bad ones.
thanks for being there.
