Hawk under the moon   Leave a comment

Saw this hawk looking for prey at sunrise behind our house. Here are two different takes on that scene, both shot with my iPhone, but one with the Hipstamatic app.

Big Sky Sunset   Leave a comment

Caught this on the one sunny day that we were here, viewed from our living room window. What a gorgeous part of the country!

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.
