Cheryl and I went over to Albertsons Park in Boise and I was able to get some shots of the beautiful folage and wild life while we were there.

I like photos with reflections. This one was rather colorful

Wildlife in the park is plentiful, and the foliage was really full of color
Here a couple of male mallards are feeding on one of the ponds.
Canadian Geese abound in this area, and I tried to get a good shot of them flying over but had to settle for this of a few taking a lazy glide in the ponds.

This was a picture I took while we were camping at Grand Jean. I thought the colors were beautiful, and the contrast was good. What do you think of all these photos, give me some feedback

Mountain Home Air Force Base, Bombing & Gunnery Range

This is the Tower where they let us on to view the planes practicing strafing.
This photo shows the targets they used to hit during the strafing practice. Pretty good at 400 miles an hour.

The planes used today were the F-10 Warthogs. Trying to get good photos as they flew by us about 50 yards away was not easy. Especially while they were flying at about 400 MPH.

This was such a special day, and what a rush to see this being done so close was really a treat. These pilots were outstanding, and the noise of those guns going off was REALLY LOUD. You really can't imagine what it sounds like until you are there.
I should have put this photo on first, as this shows the planes firing at the targets. You really should here and see this in person. What a rush as these guys go by at 400 MPH and fire those guns. It sounds like being in a 50 gallon barrel and shooting off 100 large fire crackers all at once. Oh man, this was so much fun. Even the ladies were impressed.

Stanley Lake in the Sawtooth range of Idaho

Its Hard to get the feel for these huge subjects!

This old barn seemed like a likely subject!

They kicked me off the lot after I took this photo?

Another flower photo, What do you think?

It took a few minutes to get the bee to stay put!
