Foto Friday

We were driving and saw a hang glider in the distance.  While trying to get that picture, we somehow took this one.  Isn’t it funny how sometimes the best photograph is the one you were NOT trying for?  Hope you enjoy it.  As always, you may click on the picture to see a larger version.

    What an AWESOME photo! Yes, it’s it is funny how sometimes the unexpected shots are the best photos!

    That picture is great! Although, I suppose any sunset is improved by a pretty dog!

    Why does this remind me of when that armada of alien warships that was planning to destroy the Earth got eaten by a dog in “The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy”?

    Great picture. The size contrast of the herd member and the glider in the distance adds a nice depth to the photo! Well done.

    Yes,Amazing, beautiful and it happens oftener than you would think!

    Good luck on switching your website!

    It’s so true. The photo I’m using for my current masthead was completely unexpected. I was trying to just take a picture of the tree. Somehow my dog entered the frame as well.

    Good luck with the move!

    Great shot! It’s so fun to get something totally unexpected that you relly love. Those are the best ones

    That is a Beautiful foto! Natasha the Beautiful with a hangglider and sunset. What more could we want?

    Funny, my banner photo was totally by accident. Thank goodness that I had my camera out when R decided to give K a kiss!

  12. achieve1dream on November 26, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    Yep, those are the best pictures!

    Good luck moving the site. I hope it all goes smoothly and quickly.

  15. Stumpy and Cyndi on November 26, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    Great catch! I love when I get something totally different and more wonderful than what I was shooting for!

    Good luck with your move! We havent been following for very long, but we’ve never had a problem.

    That is such a beautiful photo – the best ones are usually by accident in our experience!
    Have a good weekend

    Hope the new site works well for you (and us:) That probably explains why our Google Reader says you had two new posts but we only found one.

    Great photo.

  21. Huffle Mawson on November 26, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Update is here! Yay! Great photo. The hang glider looks like one of the cranes we saw landing yesterday. BTW Dad loves the Walking Belt (we got it for a “happy father’s day” gift)so much that we ordered a couple for others as Christmas gifts!

  24. Elmo & Mouse on November 26, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    awesome furry family!!! 🙂
