Photo of the Week Feb 10 2019

This is right before sunrise on Friday the 8th. From Millikan University in Decatur Illinois. This is also my last official photo of the week post. The purpose of it was to push myself to take photos consistently and I do now.  Sometimes I have … Continue readingPhoto of the Week Feb 10 2019

The tufted titmouse is one of my favorite little birds. They dart around constantly and can be hard to photograph.

Photo of the Week Nov 4 2018

A chilly morning in early November. I drove up the road a little ways to get away from the trees so I could see the sun rise. There was a haze of light fog hanging in the low areas that helped to make a beautiful … Continue readingPhoto of the Week Nov 4 2018
