~Internet junkie with a spice for life, lost soul who escaped cyberworld~

Hello fellow photographers of Orange County area and the world. Please make yourself at home. The links to the OC and photo forums are to the left here. My photo blog, below. I use Canon gear and like landscapes, birding and wildlife. Basically anything pertaining to creating Photography, my Canon MKIII camera, and the preservation of wildlife in Orange County.

Feel free to email me anytime! I don't get to my forum as often as I like. I've got a little music below to entertain you while I'm out shooting...;~)

All images are copyrighted by me, Linda Jones. It is against the law to steal or use others copyrighted photos.

I enjoy surf photography and being outdoors. Raptors and the wildlife as well. The creative arts, and doing panoramas and long exposures. Photography is in my soul now. My photo blog is below.

You can see or purchase Lindas photos at Eppicsurf.com, (click on photo below to get there} or my website [to the left] OCWildlife.com. My POTD's are on BirdersWorld and Earthshots.

Sorry I don't do the YUKU invites, many years since high school. ;~) 7 years of forum experiences tell me that internet friendships should be real and guarded by choice. And many times what one considers friendship, may indeed not be. And some may use the internet to decieve and manipulate others.
I am emotionally healthier now, from this realization.

Longer boats, they are coming to win us
coming to win us
Raise your mind up and look around

You can see them, yes they're looking down
From a lonely asteroid, in a vacant void.
Dyin', but not destroyed.

Favorite day ~sunrise on the desert with a real friend and my camera to borrow the moment.

    Now, I am fully aware of the importance of preserving nature and wildlife areas.
    I have now begun to change my galleries so purchases of my photos will allow me to donate towards the preservation of Orange County wildlife. I see it disappearing every day.
    My website is OCwildlife.com
    I wish I had more time to sit here, but my neck won't let me. The eyes after ten years on the net are also saying no. ;~)
    This month I managed to get another, longer lens and am having a blast. It's very heavy though. Talk about a neck wrecker! ;~)Here's some more fun I've had!

    Bighorn Rams above Lake Mead, unreal, I just sat down amongst them.
    The horns clanking when they get nervous is a sound to remember...

    Well, its been months since I got to my blog. I've had such a fun summer.
    I've shot Bobcats, chased Bald Eagles and seen alot of wildlife, even locally.
    My albums are filling...I'll share a few with you, maybe some I won't get a chance at again...
    pretty special to me, to capture a moment in time with nature. I'm probably going to spend more time promoting the importance of wildlife especially in my neighborhood.
    A wild bobcat cub, just couldn't sit still long, the mom finally giving up and finally sauntering off with them to the creek...

    the baby wanted to stay and play...

    but finally followed his bro and mom off to the creek.
    I finally got to shoot some bald eagles up north. My sister
    called and said there were eagles near where she camped
    So I hopped a plane and drove the rest of the way...a friend
    gave us a boat ride to look for them, we found two. They mate for life...

    It's been beautiful here. Some rain gave us some wildflowers first time in many years. The Northern Harriers at the back bay.

Favorite quote

Go to the people
Learn from them
Love them
Start with what they know
Build on what they have
But of the best leaders
When their task is accomplished
Their work is done
The people will remark:
"We have done it ourselves."
