Crazy new Cup Ideas

I was just messing around with ideas for a ¬†tall 15 oz mug and a few 11 oz mugs as well… what do you think, is it worth doing? ¬†These might¬†end up costing way too much to resell unfortunately unless there is a bulk option. ¬†These I came up with over at Shutterfly where I do a lot of my books and my calendars. ¬†In any case I had fun playing with combinations, whether I actually make any or not! ¬†In most cases there are 3-4 images for the same cup, different angles, and as you can see I wasted way too much time today on a project that is a total offshoot from what I “should” be doing. ¬†I am like that sometimes, so easily sidetracked, especially by a new creative idea. ¬†I am also working on more magnet ideas, but those will be a later post.

If you just want to glance at  a few of these and get on to the information about that huge sale I have been talking about, you can find that post here  

Or perhaps you wanted to see my best galleries to look for a print for someone… This is the link for my photo galleries. ¬†It is also in the sidebar menu to your right

and now on to the crazy cup ideas!

Wild Horses Couldn’t Drag Me Away!

I had the opportunity to drive over Satus Pass and see some herds of Wild Horses, with nearly as many colts as adults. They are so beautiful to watch, and the herds were made up of all colors. What a great treat! My one zoom lens, an EF 55-250 IS just was not up to the challenge and the detail is not great on the shots… I had to crop them hard to show the horses big enough, but they are still worth seeing!

This next two shots ¬†brought back happy memories of childhood… my favorite book was The Black Stallion! ¬†This might be a mare, I could not tell for sure at that distance.. but it really made me smile!

WOW, HUH???

On the same day I also saw a Black Bear sniffing along after a Cinnamon Bear… I can guess what he wanted! She was PURTY! lol

Then he noticed us watching from the road

But his chosen Lady was calling his name and leaving scent for him

So on down the hill he went after her

After one more glance to be sure we were not coming any closer they both disappeared down into the draw

We waited around for a few moments, and sure enough they came back up closer to us, but the Bitterbrush and Sage was so tall along the slope all we could see was the tops of their backs moving, until the big Black came to a Ponderosa Tree and stood up in the shelter of its branches to better see what we were up to. ¬†When he threw himself back down I think the ground shook… his fur rippled heavily. ¬†Needless to say we were staying right in by the truck ready to jump back in if necessary.
