Practical can be fun too. I guess.
Well, since I begged asked months ago to have today off (because I thought it would be the day after the SPN finale only it turned out it wasn't *facepalm*), I've been doing unbearably practical things with it like medical appointments and setting up routers and epic cleaning and such.

However, I did take a 15 minute walk between appointments and took some pictures. Thought I'd share.

Those up close flower shots are REALLY pretty. Wish the bmble bee hadn't flown the coop as it were. :)

And the panorama shot is AWESOME. My camera will do panorama (supposedly) but I can't figure out how to make it do it. And of course the "owner's manual" is actuality a cd for the computer that I can no longer find. Boo.

Nice pics, but where's the ones of Chaos? *black kitty grabby hands*

She was fast! By the time I got aimed, she'd moved along.

There's supposed to be a panorama setting on this camera and I think I've used it before, but I couldn't find it today, so I just did the old-fashioned way and took the two shots into my graphic program and stitched them together manually. I cloned out most of the artifact line, but there's still a little twinning showing I couldn't get rid of without things looking weird. :-P

I'll go see if he's feeling photogenic. Hang on.

Guh. So beautiful.

Harbour! Large amount of water! Green grass!

I love my mountain, but I miss living close to the sea. And to live somewhere that's not in drought, where grass is green ...

I thought you were down near a bay there for some reason. It is a pretty area of the world here, when one gets a chance to look at it.

Gazebo within gazebo made me grin :-)

I was walking past and noticed it did that. It is kind of neat.

I am so jealous of you for getting mountains like that. Wow. So beautiful! Also, sailboats are love.

Yeah, I had to order them up special. Installing them was a real pain, and I'm not keen on the placement of the glacier. I might move it a bit further north. (Hee!)

Wow. So beautiful! Also, sailboats are love.

I'm surprised more of them weren't out on the water instead of in harbour. It was a gorgeous day.

Marvelous pictures :)
Nearly looks like you were on vacation in Tirol or Kärnten (Austria). Where did you really take them?

Ooooh you have blue sky! We don't get that very often in England...

It was atypical for May. There's a reason the climate in this area is refered to as a rainforest. :-)

Mine does too, I'm sure I've used ot before, but the one above I stitched with my graphics program.

ATTACK!! KILL THE GAZEBO!!!

Hey there
Lurking Wombat here. I head over to the Gazebo and shoot it with a +1 arrow and attack it with my +5 sword of Ogre Killing :) What?! Nothing is happening? :)
Great pics and glad you got out for a nice walk around the water.
Hope you get a chance to do it again soon. And thanks for the pic of Chaos :) Very glad he is doing better
Though i have to say, i am disappointed that you didn't get a picture of a grassy knoll ;)
hugs

You are swarmed by the local Rotary club, who beat you senseless with rubber duckies, but you escape with your life. You now have a minor enemy: Rotary Clubs. It's their gazebo. ;-)

Weren't any available to take pictures of. They run away too darn fast.
