    Hi Dave:

    Just registered on your site.

    Sorry, not very computer savvy – not in to FaceBook etc. and never joined a blog site before. I guess I will learn.

    Liked your photos’ and they are very similar to mine. So I may add some comments from time to time.

    Every run in to another Washington State photog Keith Lazelle. My wife knows his and we always order his calendars and notepads for gifts. If you are not aware of him, his web site is:

    http://www.keithlazelle.com

    Up and Over!

    Hi David! I like your name.

    Glad you like the site! I haven’t run into Keith Lazelle, but I checked out his site, and I’m very impressed. Is he a career photographer or just a hobbyist like the rest of us? His stuff is very polished, he clearly knows what he’s doing.

    I’d love to see some of your pics. Do you have them online anywhere? Someday I might get around to figuring out a way for other folks to post their favorite pics here as well. Today is not that day, but eventually it may happen.

    Just found your site and pictures. Great work. Both the required travel to get to the site to get the pictures and the pictures themselves. Live in Birmingham and have never been out west of the Mississippi. I will dream through your pictures. Keep up the good work.

      I definitely appreciate the kind words, but I think the word “great” may be taking it a bit far. :) I just take a lot more pictures than the average Joe, so I get some good ones bubbling up to the top. I took a look at your site and you’re not so bad yourself. So I’ll keep taking pics if you do too. Thanks for reading!!

    Hi Dave Fry, I stay on the easy trails these days at 85 years young, and that is not always the place to get a super shot of our great outdoors. I use the best photos I take as a guide for my 3D acrylic paintings. The picture is painted on four 1/16 inch acrylic sheeting. This adds parallax to the many ways to enhance depth perception. When I spot a great photo someone else has taken, that lends itself to this technique, I try to get permission from the photographer to make one 3D painting of the scene. I spotted your glorious photo of the Skagit River below Diablo Lake on the cover of the 2010-11 Cascade Loop Scenic Highway guidebook. It lends itself to a 4 layer painting without causing an artificial look. Could I purchase a small unmounted copy, with permission to paint one 3D painting of the scene, with the understanding that credit will be given for the photo on which it is biased? If so, please email the details. Thanks, Peter Saunders, Bellevue, WA.

    Dave, I came across your site, and I have subscribed to your RSS feed. I look forward every day to see a new photo. They are superb. I live in southern Utah near Zions, Bryce Canyon, and the Grand Circle Area. Have you taken any pictures there, and if so, what are your thoughts on the scenery. Keep up this great hobby.

      Hi Hyrum! No, I haven’t yet had the pleasure of making it down to southern Utah (although I’ve driven through the middle of the state on I-70 a couple times with no time to stop, sadly), but it’s ABSOLUTELY on my list of places to visit. All the evidence I’ve seen suggests that the scenery down there is GORGEOUS. I’d love to be able to take some time to explore, it just hasn’t worked out quite yet. How is the weather out there in the late spring? (ie, April-June)

      Thanks for the kind words!

    Hi!

    Hi!

    We hope you are doing great! This is Pia from UPrinting.

    We have this link:
    http://www.uprinting.com/ on your post: http://picture-of-the-day.com/may-11-2010-negril-beach-jamaica/.

    I would like to ask if we could have it nofollowed.

    Also, can we request the anchor text to be changed into another term? It depends on what you like. We realized that a link is more valuable when people know exactly what they’re getting when they click on it, and we believe you should have the freedom to choose with your own words what you think of our business card and services when you link to us.

    Thank You!

    Regards,
    Pia

    I believe I e-mailed you about using your photo of a baby ostrich’s head and I don’t remember you getting back to me. I am the photo editor on a new dinosaur book from Johns Hopkins University Press. We need your photo and will of course write all the credit you ask us to next to it in the book. I also need to e-mail a art permission slip to you. Would you Please e-mail me back at this e-mail:

    Thanks so much and happy holidays,
