Amidst the Vastness
A prime spot to witness the end of a day
A long look into the sun set.
A melancholy meandering through the shade,
only to find the sunshine still on parade.
Though it is flowing away from the light,
it's still serenely a pretty sight.
So it Begins
A curious sight these clumps of uncut corn,
standing tall in a harvested field unadorned,
both tell the story of a new reaping,
timely reminders of seasonal keeping.
Bluff Top Blaze
The setting sun,
alights the tree top canopy,
and silhouette sights have begun,
It was like a fiery sight to see.
Don't often find time to venture over to Minn.... But thanks to the reach of a lens....shot from the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi!
As if of out of an old west novel the herd of horses peacefully grazed. I stood at the fence line for about 5 minutes watching and snapping photos and suddenly the whole herd walked over to me and stood right in front of me.... I felt honored :)
Arriving Shortly MSP
Last summer returning from St. Louis, I was the typical tourist, taking some pictures from the window seat of a Southwest Airliner. We were minutes from arrival at MSP International Airport.
Who Done It?
Crimes in the natural world exist too! ;) Where is the Sherlock Holmes detective of nest robbers. Rarely have I stumbled across a scene like this. So, I thought it was worth posting.
The waters are not that high so far this early spring. The risk of flooding seems to be low right now.
Captains Of Industry
I am forever amazed at the scope and breadth of civil engineering. It is really remarkable the design acuity, the survey and build skill, and the management process.
Since I live in La Crosse, Wis. Minnesota is just a quick drive away. Two summer trips to the Rockies and several hiking adventures in the mountains spurred my interest in photography. I was struck anew at the natural beauty in Colorado Rockies. That first trip west in 2009 primed my interest. So now I seek beauty here where I live. Most of my shots of beauty are landscapes , but I am reaching out to closer views, and other subject matter too. I still consider myself a novice, but compared to where I was in 2009, I like to think I have learned a lot since then. But that opinion is relative as I witness so much talent on this webpage and Capture Wisconsin. Looking at others photography can only help hone one's own composition skills and technical savvy. I don't need to win awards, they are nice but satisfaction with a shot is it's own reward. Being internally motivated will keep the interest going but a bit of encouragement along the way is good too. I hope to be an encourager with my observations. Thanks for your shots and taking a look at mine. Maybe we will cross paths someday in the real world!
