Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins Colorado... I use to live just a few minutes from here. Spent many days near or on that body of water. Hiked trails and sat there and took in the view.

Snowy Range, also known as Lake Marie in Wyoming. Took this picture the first time I was ever there. Never have I had such clean crisp air like that in my lungs..
Quality isn't so good with this picture. I took this with a film camera and had to scan the photo to get it online..

Very nice photos, Mike. Wish I could do a sunset like that.

Here's my latest painting of two Coasting Schooners passing off Cape Ann in the late 1800's. The one in the foreground is the 110 ft. Alice I. Wentworth bound to Boothbay from Gloucester with a full load of salt. The other is the Ervin J. Luce, heavily burdoned with Rockport Granite bound for Boston. Scenes like this off Cape Ann were common from the mid-1800s to early 1900s before railroads succeded shipping for transportation of goods.

A better image of "Reneson's bull bass"

There is quite a bend in that rod and one wonders if he has his right hand on it.

JM ---- What make/model Brownie are you using to take those pics?

Seeing that sunrise every morning sure puts the day in perspective ---- means you at least get to start another one and make it count!!

Bill,

You are like an art generator!! I envy folks with your kind of talent as it must give you a great deal of pleasure to produce such fine work. I'll be in touch with you soon as I hope to be decorating a new man room soon. Mule will be consulting on the interior decorating and help decide on what should hang between the shootin irons and the fishing gear.

One of my daughters just re-discovered a water color talent and I am thrilled about that ---- meanwhile I'm still playing with blocks and trying to build things square.

Thanks, B-Squid. I started painting when I was about ten but, throughout most of my life didn't have the time to take it seriously - family, work, work, work. Now I'm retired and my new wife is an artist and very encouraging. I'm having a ball with painting and trying to make up for all those years.

You can see most of my paintings at: http://bill-hubbard@fineartamerica.com/

That picture of Snowy Range was taken with a Cannon Elf Advantix. I forgot what the film was called. Maybe it was advantix. I do not remember though...

The other pictures are taken with a Sony Cybershot point and shoot camera. Some cheap $100 camera that I carry with me all the time. You never know when there is moment that you need or want to snag a picture of
