Snow Day

On a whim, I took a short drive on a snowy day to see what I might see.  Snow was falling, the temp just barely above zero and large chunks of ice were floating on Lake Superior.  As I drove along a gravel road, the snow dusted shrubs caught my attention.

A Few Final Reflections…

Now that I have enjoyed another #optoutside, I can start thinking about where I’ll go next year to celebrate the fourth annual event.  I have a whole year to plan, and you have a whole year to wait.  In the meantime, do get outside whenever possible and enjoy what nature has to offer to each of us.  And, whenever possible, share the experience with others.  And, don’t be afraid to look at things a little differently.

Big Bright Ball

Bright sun and interesting clouds highlighting the St. Louis River.  I used the orange lens of my sunglasses as a filter on my Sony RX100V to bring out the texture of the clouds.

Moments

A brief moment by the lake before the cool breeze pushed back, then the moment was gone.  But, for that moment, an opportunity to commune with the Great Lake, to listen to the song of the waves, to be touched by the fingers of wind as they move through her hair.  How many more of these moments exist for her, for any of us?
