weekly winnerage!

I have taken thousands of photos since the last time I posted weekly winners, so it's gonna be tough to figure out which ones to use -- and really, since I have so many to choose from, you all are probably gonna expect really amazing and awesome photos, no? I hope I do not disappoint...

Weather in August. Definitely not in the desert any more...

fireweed. when the blooms reach the top, summer is pretty much over, and when it turns red, there will be snow in six weeks. that's what they say, anyway

the barn my grandfather built in the late 1800's, I think...

Part of the Weekly Winners roundup, thanks to the Sarcastic Mom!


  1. That first shot is beautiful!

  2. The barn looks so romantic to me ! and a moose ! I have never seen one free, only in a zoo.

  3. They are awesome and amazing!! So glad you're back Julie!! I love the dragonfly,it has great detail! We've got fireweed in Belgium too, but I sure hope it's not going to snow in six weeks!!

  4. The mountain shot is stunning, and the moose pic, wow! All I get in my backyard are squirrels, and an occasional fox.

  5. I love them all. However, the colors and the feel and the look of your Grandfather's blog is just very moving. BRAVA.

  6. Great shots of dragonfly and moose.

  7. That barn is so emotional to me. I really love it. ANd the bright blue sky! Superb!

  8. Of your weekly winners I think the one of your son and father grabbed me most. Then most pictures of grandparents with grandchildren get to me. The setting is amazing too!

  9. All wonderful shots. The barn shot was my favorite.

  10. The contrast of the barn and the sky is amazing. Nice shots!

  11. I love all the photos! Glad to see you back up and running. Your new look for your blog is terrific. You've got me thinking about my grandfather and the house he built in Illinois. I may have to scrounge up some old photos and scan them in.

  12. Beautiful! I'm so happy Weekly Winners has returned. I love the first shot, it's so spooky!


You like me! You really really like me!

Or maybe you just find me horribly annoying and are about to let me know. Go ahead, I can deal.

So, whatever, you know, leave a message. Thanks!!!
