Howdy! Nice Evenin' Aint' It?

When we were at the beach the other day, walking along the boardwalk there was this massive bush covered with these yellow flowers. They were each about 4 inches (10cm) across.

This one seemed to greet me as I looked over the rail at him. Thought I think the southern accent was projected on him by my own mind.

He's not dead, he's just mostly dead

(Any Princess Bride fans out there?)

Sorry about the non-posting and non-visiting of late.

Heavy work load, sleep and still dealing with my ever present back issues have kept me away from many things that I love to do.

Lovely Wife and I went to the beach Sunday afternoon and that was the first time I've been out with my camera in two months.

It was an absolutely beautiful day, though it was very windy and the surf was really churned up near the shore. The waves were pretty heavy.

In America, this is Memorial Day Weekend, with Monday being Memorial Day in memory of those who have served in the U.S. armed forces and died for the freedoms we enjoy.

I was not thinking of the holiday and when we got to the beach, I was shocked at all the people.

It wasn't totally overflowing like on Independence Day in July, but the crowds surprised me.

Today's photos aren't anything special, but they kind of captured a bit of the many cars and people out enjoying the beach and the beautiful day as we were.

A New Panorama

I took the photos for this panorama about a month ago. I just hadn't sat down and tried to stitch it together.

The light variation across the images was really too much to try to fix. I worked with it until I couldn't stand working on it any more.

Sorry for my absence, things are still kinda tough going for me right now.
