Hopefully not going to bore everyone with the fair photos. But, these are from last weekend. Last one till next year.

This first one is the pig scramble. We had figured with the rain no one would be there, so waited until too late to go get a seat. As you can see, rain didn't stop the crowds.

There are others at http://picasaweb.google.com/nhmom50/DeerfieldFair02# The last one was the blue skies that appeared as we were heading to the parking lot after having spent four hours in the rain.

Not the best shot of the dahlia's. They were behind chicken wire and I had only brought my 50mm I just got. Figured it was the best to bring in the rain and dark, cloudy skies.

We always go to the sheepdog demonstration. It's about an hour long show where he shows us how they use the dogs to herd the sheep, get them into pens, over a (??) gate ramp, etc. Then, he selects either adults or kids from the audience to do the same thing the dogs just did. This one he chosenine teenage girls to herd nine sheep around.

It's hilarious watching these girls running all over thinking they can herd a 250-400 lb sheep. I think this girl was trying to scare them back. :-)

Those are nice, I really like the oxen photo and the way their fur turned out.

Patty, did you use noise reduction on the oxen? Their legs look a bit smoother than I would think possible. But then again, having grown up in Queens, NY, I don't know much about oxen!

Thanks, guys. We had fun even though it was raining.

These were processed and uploaded from the laptop that is working. Right now I'm on the desktop that's hobbling along and don't have access to the photos. I can check on the NR. I know I did it on some. Didn't think I had done it on the oxen as it was such a sharp photo. I'll check and post back later.

Looks like a well spent day, regardless of the weather Patty. I love the colors starting to show on the foliage in the first shot, looking forward to seeing more of that as the season progresses.

Great shots Patty

The dahlia is fantastic

The oxen look almost 3D. How do you get your shots so sharp. What lens are you using?
