Prayer of the Woods

You will find signs like this in various places across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is a reminder that we must care for the trees that cover my beautiful and beloved state. The local Department of Natural Resources (DNR) carefully grooms the various forests to make sure that we don't have the... Sign in to see full entry.

On A Winters Day

As the Simon and Garfunkel song goes, " On a winters day, in a deep and dark December..." This was a late December afternoon. It was about zero and the sun was setting. Although stark, I find this photo beautiful in its own way. I hope you enjoy it. Sign in to see full entry.

This will be my last photo mount for a couple of days to rest up. I had this one loaded a day back, so I'll give ya this one and be back, hopefully by Monday. This sight was along a nature trail over by Marquette. I took the photo and got away from it, but an unbelievable number of morons stood... Sign in to see full entry.

More Bang For Your Duck

Believe it or not, these are not tame ducks. I had gone down to this small creek down by the Dollarville Flooding area to take a specific photo for a project I was doing, and found all these ducks swimming there. I had just bought a new 50 pound bag of dog food, so I opened it and filled a large... Sign in to see full entry.

Today, You Get Two

While it was colder than sin yesterday, I still decided to take the dogs out for a run, but I forgot to take my Nikon. So when I spotted this eagle sitting in a tree about fifty feet away. As I worked my way toward him and then in front of him, he was watching my every move. This first shot is him... Sign in to see full entry.

Canoe In The Mist

I've found a folder of photos I had set aside for printing that had gotten shuffled off to inside two other folders. I get carried away sometimes with my filing efforts. We were camping by a small lake whose name escapes me right now, but as I stood on the beach looking out over the early morning... Sign in to see full entry.

Starry, Starry Night!

I love being out at night to watch the stars. When I was very young, my Father taught me the wonders of the sky above me. Add in a beautiful display of the northern lights, and my soul weeps with joy. Then there is this song by Don McLean about Vincent Van Gogh. Starry starry night Paint your...

Stunning Sunrise On A Winter Morn

I thought I had lost this photo! This was taken two years ago on a frigid winter morning near my home. If I recall, it was about three below zero this particular morning, and the only reason I was up was I had to take my wife to the hospital for a MRI. This is a tributary to the Tahquamenon River as... Sign in to see full entry.

There's A Chair In The Field

This photo happened quite accidentally. I mean that I meant to take the photo, but as I walked along the edge of a wooded area, I stepped out into this old wheat field and to quote Forrest Gump, 'For no particular reason...' there was a chair in the middle of the field. I should have lightened this... Sign in to see full entry.

Life Is Filled With Turkeys

For the longest time, the main bird for hunters here in Michigan was the pheasant. Other than getting out to move around, I never found eating pheasant all that pleasurable. Then the Michigan Dept of Resources (the DNR)re-introduced the once native turkey. It took about six years before people began... Sign in to see full entry.
