• Waiting for Krahnpix

    Being an introvert snowy owl is nice but it can get lonely. Day and night I’m out in the winter cold all by myself. We snowy owls tend not to hang out with each other for reasons that escape me now. But we’ve always done it this way so there’s no reason to change. Despite what… Continue Reading

  • Hope, sausage and making photos

    Hope, sausage and photos have a few things in common. You never know exactly how they are going to turn out and the process is a little messy and unpredictable. At least for me. Today I’d like to pull back the curtain and show how sausage … err one photo … came to be. It started with… Continue Reading

  • Pity the optimists

You might think that stubble fields are yellow too, and often a gorgeous yellow, so what’s the problem?… Continue Reading

It starts with the first sighting of Sandhill Cranes in summer and lasts until I can’t find them anymore in fall.… Continue Reading

  • Recycled golf course

    I honestly wanted to like golf. I’d try it every decade or two but it just didn’t take. The whole thing seemed like a perfectly good waste of green space … until this past fall when I finally found a good use for a golf course. As the sun was setting I came upon an… Continue Reading
