Up Close With my Backyard Critters

Winter is not my favorite season anymore. I still do  get out for my hikes  in the cold and snow but I miss the trees, plants, flowers and wildlife of Summer.  Just not a lot to photograph. But I still get some visitors to my back yard, deer, turkey , rabbits, squirrels and a variety…

Another sunset, and one day closer to Spring.

It warmed up a bit today, but the snow still was deep. Still a little sore from my hike yesterday, but decided to trudge through the snow to photograph the sunset. And I wasn’t disappointed, never saw one I didn’t like.  It always amazes me to watch the subtle changes nove through the clouds as…

Moon rise, sunset.

It was nice to see those clear blues skies after yesterday’s storm. It was cold but that sunshine sure got me thinking about Spring. Decided to take advantage of the clear skies and watch the sunset.  Wasn’t easy walking in the woods in the ice crusted deep snow but the sunset made it worthwhile. Here…
