Photographs are reflections of our lives, here's the place to share!

 

On my way to work New Years day a huge hawk perched on a telephone pole at the end of Blaine Buntings driveway.......as big around as the pole, he wasn't scared of me or my truck, just watched me with a careful eye.

....its (photography) so funny, I take photos of all kinds of stuff, but what do people really want to look at???? Pictures of snow on the boardwalk.... 143 thousand image views in that one gallery today......but only one person bought photos (four dollars worth) LOL! I have no idea how these things happen, my usual numbers for a gallery might be 300 views a day....the internet and how it works will never be understood by me......

utah beach

 

looking west towards USA - only a single residence that was there in the day

 

looking east towards Belgium - nothing as far as you can see

 

looking south towards Paris - nothing but farmland, cause this portion of Normandy is the Kentucky of Europe - they raise the majority of thoroughbreds for all of Europe in Normandy

 

It's all private land and it's all like it was back in '43 icon14.gif

WOW that's alot of views. I wonder how the link is spreading faster, email or facebook? I don't guess you can tell where they are coming from? I bet if you hung a few of your pics in the bike shop you'd sell some.

So the production crew was in town over the holidays (home from college) and they sifted through some video...this is one of the results:

Great Pic's again Alan, thanks for sharing. The hawk is most likely a mature Red Tailed Hawk.highfive.gif

Mac and I have started up our winter hikes on the backside, I highly recommend you enjoy this side of the island too! Just pick any crossover and start walking.....except for 2 firearms days in Jan there is only bow hunting in the OSV zone so you can walk safely. Take your family and your camera there is no shortage of beauty back there.
