Spring Revival!

Antelope on Brown’s Hill

Faithful blog followers may have noticed that posts on “Ranch News” have been fewer and more basic lately. This was largely due to technical difficulties. My faithful laptop went on to that great recycling center in the sky, and I had to learn, sort of, to post on my husband’s wonderful, but unfamiliar, Mac. When I added the new version of Photoshop Elements, I discovered that the newer and fancier upgrade was likewise unfamiliar. Hence the changes you have observed.

But all this is in the past! After much study, I purchased a new laptop. I finally gave up and called the Adobe help desk, where the nice gentleman explained to me how to revert to the familiar “Classic Editor” posting format, which makes it easy to do more editing.

My new tools allow me to resume my former style of posting lots of medium size photos, with, I hope, enlightening and witty text.

Deer dreams

Mule deer watching

 

 

Mule deer in winter
prowling,patient in dry brush,
waiting for green grass.

Winter south of the Wall, no dragons

Sheep Mountain

long underwear weather

There MAY be dragons in that sky.

New Year’s dawn

New Year’s dawning, cold,
winter branches reach skyward,
seeking the future.

Contrail Treasure Map

 

 

Treasure lies upon
Bibleback and Camelback—
the X marks the spot.
