Mandarin Orange Monday

These are pictures I took while at the Whooping Crane Festival in Wisconsin.  They didn't really need any touch up except a little hue/saturation tweak.  Enjoy ...

Don't you just love this country :)

Please note that I haven't become too lazy to produce artwork, I am very busy trying to get ready for Christmas ... a late start and panic is setting in.  I will continue to do what I can with all of the meme's  I follow, but  please be patient with me ... hopefully I will be back in form my next year :)


  1. Terrific, colorful captures for the day, Andrea! What a lovely area you live in! I think we're all entering the "BUSY" time!! Just 'hang in there'!!!

  2. Andrea these images are perfect choices for MoM - and they already were orange (as my car was!). I really like the rich orange against blue sky (your tweaking?). Also the horizontals in the middle one making colourful stripes.
    Thank you Andrea for finding the time to take part in Mandarin Orange Monday. I must admit, I am starting to feel the strain too!

  3. These are simply beautiful and many of us would feel grateful if we could post these at the top of our form. Be kind to yourself in the rush towards Christmas.

  4. Wonderful photos for Madarin orange monday!

  5. Nice pictures!

    I feel like a duck swimming in fast water at this time of year - all may seem calm on the surface, but underneath I'm swimming like crazy!

  6. Andrea, these are gorgeous! I agree, Wisconsin is beautiful country. I think you manage your time great. Considering all you do, toss in family and home, add several furry friends, and top it off with many photographic and computer projects, I wonder how you find the time to breathe.

    Slow down and have a cup of coffee (or tea if you like. Pat the dog, and just relax for a bit. It's good for you. Somehow we always manage to get things done in time for Christmas.

    You have a wonderful night, hugs, Edna B.
