Our dog Mario enjoyed the first snow of the year, especially on the beach at low tide:

Frosty leaves   Leave a comment

Captured these on a cold morning while walking our dog.  I love how the frost gives everything a bit of additional texture, which stands out especially strong when the light is low during sunrise.

I  played around with macro photography to get some close-ups of this wintry remnant of a thistle in our backyard. Click on any picture to see them in slideshow format.

Lonely tree at sunrise   Leave a comment

This tree feels so lost and lonesome to me every time I walk past it while I’m taking the dog out. Captured in the marsh near Clinton Harbor.

Hawk hunting at dawn   3 comments

Captured this Red-tailed Hawk as he was surveying the field behind our house for his breakfast during sunrise. The other images were shot after I followed him to a tree that allowed me to get closer.
