Yes, I am still alive! The spring and summer has been filled with endless work and very little time to post blogs. We just got back from our 4th of July trip and I thought I would drop a quick note. I thought I would do something a little different with my photos. Feet and Water. Enjoy your summer.
This past Christmas my wife gave me a new camera. Well it isn’t band new, but an upgrade from the camera I have used over the past couple of years. I wanted to see how much better the photos would be with the new camera. I put my 75-300mm lens on the camera and snapped a few shots of birds feeding at the feeders in our yard.
These photos are from a month ago. The day was cloudy and the ground was covered in snow. The one feeder is about six feet from the front window of the house and the other feeder is about forty feet from the back of the house. I think the camera did a nice job of capturing the details of the birds. I did a little enhancing and cropping of the photos. I am very pleased with the results of the new camera.
Enjoy the portraits of the feathered visitors to Prickly Ash Farm.
One of the greatest signs of spring in Wisconsin is the Trillium. The woodland floors will be blanketed in a sea of white.
Take a moment and enjoy spring time in Wisconsin!
Today lead me on a quick trip to Zumbrota MN. I needed to drop off some livestock at the market so I can receive some “seed” money for planting the new hay crop. I took my camera with me and snapped a few photos of the out-cropping bluffs lining the Mississippi River valley in Red Wing MN. Enjoy today’s photo.
We had a snow storm earlier this week. The trees are covered in wet snow frozen to the trees. When I went to the dump today, I took my camera with me and looked for a photo. I stopped at the local 4-H club house and took a couple of photos. I changed the photo to a black and white with a red filter. I find this photo striking and intense. Enjoy the Wisconsin winter wonderland.
