I still haven't ordered a new camera. I've been using the photo-editing tools that come with Iphoto to edit out the big blotch that appears in the sky, on all my outdoor pictures. I will be getting a camera before long, it's just that we have some doctor and dentist bills that will be paid first.
We're very close to the Missouri River; you can see it from the highest point on our place, back at "the point". However, I haven't been successful in getting it to show up in a picture. The other day while taking our walk, I gave it another try from different angles than I normally use.
I spent a lot of time down there when I rode my horse, Blue. I miss him, but I can honestly say I don't miss riding... except that I miss going to places I will never visit again, because you can't get there with a car.
Places like the ghost farm.
It was fun riding over fields that are so often flooded, planted with soybeans and corn. Sometimes I'd see the actual harvest going on.
I'm so glad I took literally hundreds of pictures during my time with Blue. I've very thankful that while I was still able to ride, I had what was, for me, the perfect horse.
Rest in peace, my friend.
