Welcome to CLIQUE!
It warms my heart to know that this love of photography didn't skip any generations as it passed down to me! I am blessed to have such a legacy and I hope to pass it on to my own children and grandchildren some day.
I experience a physical and spiritual thrill whenever the Lord shows Himself in His marvelous creation around us and in the people I meet. My dream vacation would be to spend a year or two just traveling around the US, stopping at little out of the way places and photographing the interesting characters and the beauty of nature to be found along the way - those things that draw me closer to GOD and help point others to Him, too.

Contrary to many "horror stories" that exist about wolf-hybrids, our Buck was a sweet-natured, friendly dog. He was protective of his territory and his family, but also quite welcoming to the meter-readers, septic cleaners and such. And he did his best to keep our property moose- bear- and porcupine-free - twice, getting a muzzle-full of quills in the process!
Unfortunately, none of us took the time to properly train Buck when he was young and, consequently, he could not be let into our home, as he would jump on everything (and everyone), knock things over, pull things down off of counters, etc and pee everywhere. The few times we did let him in to hang out with the family only lasted about 15 minutes, tops. When the temps outside were too cold for Buck, we would put him in our heated garage - but unless he was tethered, he would again, knock things over, pull things down off of counter tops (my DH's workshop is the garage) and "do his business" everywhere.
Still, he was a lovable dog and I truly regret not making more of an effort to have him trained well enough to be involved in our family the way our little dog, Cully, is.
I have a lot more photos of Buck over the years that I would like to post here now, but it will take some time to locate them (some are in digital files and others are actual photos from my "pre-digital' stage). Once those pics are found, I'll post them in another blog entry.

Sunset Mode; 6:51 pm; St Andrews' parking lot; B&W
(Never thought a B&W sunset would be anything special, but I have to admit, I really like this one!)
TFL ~ kimB
Landscape mode; ISO 800; Shutter 1/56
Shutter Priority; ISO 200; Shutter 1/3
I could only adjust the shutter speed; the ISO adjusted on its own. I will need to read through my instruction book to learn how to take better photos. Also, I had to haike about 3/4 mile - up hill most of the way - and cose to leave my tripod in the car, as I did not want to lug it all that way. Maybe I'll be able to get to one of our local rivers and set the tripod up there. We're supposed to get snow this weekend, though, so not sure if I'll be able to.
