A Conversation with a Drunk Cowboy

Recently I took a trip to Old Bedford Village for the Old West reenactment.  If you ever have the chance to attend this event drop everything and GO!!  One of these two cowboys is the town drunk.  Can you guess which one?

A Walk in the Woods

Had another great day off and got to spend some time in the woods in Ohiopyle State Park.  I photographed Cucumber Falls completely frozen over, the main falls and then a little in the woods.  At one point I was in the woods and noticed a set of footprints in the snow.  They were filled with the last snow and a little windblown but still visible due to the late afternoon sun casting its long shadows over the area.  And I wondered to myself, perhaps this is the road less traveled and the road which I should be following.

Water SlidesThis is the top of the natural water slides in Ohiopyle State Park.  I just don’t understand why there was nobody enjoying a ride down the slides.  Could have been that the temp was just a little over 15ºF.

An Adventure into the Cold

Sunday was my birthday and I decided since it was the coldest day of the winter so far I should celebrate by going out to my local waterfall and taking some frozen photos of the falls and stream.  In the close up of the falls you can see that it hasn’t really frozen completely as of yet but I am hopeful that by my next day off from work it will be frozen completely over.

Watch for an update on Cucumber Falls in Ohiopyle this weekend.

An Hour Later…

So recently the Westmoreland Photographers Society took a trip to the National Aviary in Pittsburgh.  And this trip was no disappointment.  There were many birds ready to pose for a picture and we were very pleased to appease them.  In one of the rooms I noticed this particularly bright orange and black bird which seemed to stay in the top of the trees.  So I decided that I wasn’t leaving the room until I caught him in a pose.  Well that proved to be more difficult that I had thought and an hour later I finally caught the little guy.  I think the times was well spent.
