On A Path Less Traveled

Aimless, no destination in mind, a path to follow, mysteries in nature.

Rising From the Bog

Shapes rise from the watery bog.  There is light and there is movement.  Who knows what lies beneath the water, beneath the light, what is hiding, waiting to surprise us?  These are the big questions along the October road.

What Can Be Saved?

NV5S0017-Edit

It often happens that an idea does not become what one wishes.  The execution in the moment seemed like it would work. But the realization when editing is that not much can be recovered from the available information.  So, what to do?  I’m not one to just give up and walk away.  I will take  time and play with sliders and curves to see what I might create from the data.  The October Road yields an interesting possibility.

In A Place Stranger Than The Last

What seemed like a perfectly normal place is transformed by a shift of perspective and a twist of the camera.

For the Birds

On May 11th, I joined a group of birders at the Boulder Lake Environmental Learning Center in northern Minnesota as part of the Document Spring project.  The group had started out earlier to identify as many birds as possible, I believe it was around 70, before the Document spring group arrived.  We went on a short hike during which I tried to take photos of birds that are not willing models.  I also offered advice to the group on camera settings and technique.  I also spotted what I thought were interesting subjects.

Stormy Lake

High winds are blowing down Lake Superior today creating large waves at the western end of the lake.  At the time this image was taken, winds were running around twenty five miles an hour.  Later in the day, the winds are predicted to grow in intensity and I will try to return to see how things look.
