Naturally Occurring

Reds, yellows, blues, purples, and, yes, even greens are out there in these early days of winter. You have to look closely, however, or you may miss all of that color hiding among the white and gray.

Uses for Ice

To freeze a waterfall mid-cascade. Or to hold hundreds of winter kite fest participants on the surface of a lake.

Black and White and Brown and Gray

My “real” camera hibernated for most of the last two weeks, so I took many photos on the fly with my dying iPhone. I can’t say I’ve liked many of them.

However, a three-day weekend is dawning, and I plan to a) reintroduce my camera to the great outdoors and take some solid photos in temperate (for Minnesota) weather, and b) purchase a new phone so I can have a decent camera with me on days when I don’t feel like lugging the big one all over civilization.

Today I had a moment to take a short walk with my favorite camera during daylight. Although these pics lack color, I thought a few turned out swell.
