New season, new header images

Some of you may have noticed that the photos in my header have changed. I like to keep the pictures seasonal, so I have swapped out the winter-themed photos for spring-like images.

This is on the Ohio University campus
This is at Lake Logan (one of my submissions in last year's Shoot the Hills photo competition)
This is an artsy-ish version of Cherry tree blossoms (this photo was featured in my credit union's monthly newsletter last spring).
This is a very close crop of some crocus petals, with a canvas texture added during post processing.
This is the Pine Warbler that stumped me at the feeders last spring. Haven't seen him this year.

If you're interested in learning how to showcase randomly rotating header images for your blog, you should check out the website/blog Tips for New Bloggers. That's where I got my code from. There are probably other variations on the same theme out there, but I found some other helpful stuff on that site, so that's why I recommend it.

What kind of "code hacks," if any, do you use on your blog?

I love your blog header (especially since I'm a kayak fan!)That photo at lake logan is gorgeous and I loved the Cherry Tree blossoms - congrats on being published! I really like using the weather gadget on my blog as well as pasting the google analytics codes into my 3 blogs so I can track traffic - see what pages they found popular, etc.

Kelly said... the cherry blossoms, and the Lake Logan photo looks like liquid gold--very nice. Thanks for the header tip. I have to get some sort of header for my blog. It's very boring now. You've inspired me!
