Geese on a pond

Originally uploaded by P_Linehan.

These geese were honking loudly and swimming at the Waynesboro Reservoir. I liked how th zoom setting blurred the water around them.

Here are some others on land.

A New Bird in Shippensburg?

I don't remember hearing grackles in Shippensburg before. Last Saturday was bright and sunny. These loud birds seemed to be on all the trees. I got these two singing on the roof. The bird on the right (a male?) was doing the calling.

Enterprise in orbit

What a shot! I wonder how this picture was created. There must be some wizardry involved.

Unusually Warm Day

Map image

Today the temperature has been unseasonably high, almost 70! It's still only March3rd too. As I left campus in the late afternoon some of the students were playing touch football in the quad. Others were throwing a baseball around. Tomorrow a big deluge is forecast. Just what we need: more mud. I hope it holds off until the afternoon so I can get in the Surveying lab.

Signal Towers

I often walk on this seldom used railroad spur with the dog. Here are shots of the the signal tower at different times of the year: late winter and late summer. I really liked the contrast seeing the same object in completely different conditions.
