A Big Ol' Snow Plow

I can't remember why I had stopped along the road, but I caught this shot of a passing snow plow on M-28, the main east-west thoroughfare across the UP, after a heavy snowfall. Sign in to see full entry.

Sunflowers Under the Northern Lights

We had a farmer in the UP who always had a huge field of sunflowers yearly. I've got a lot of pictures of the flowers from many different angles because I like to experiment, but then an idea came to me.

Two Moose Having A Conversation

I watched these two moose stand in the quiet, eddy waters where the Tahquamonenon River 'pouched' out for twenty minutes early one morning. They touched noses and stood just as you see them here as if they might have been brothers. It became an almost "holy moment" in the day's stillness. Sign in to see full entry.
