I enjoy a morning walk around my farm and along the river with the dog and a camera. The beauty of nature, sunrise, and sights seen are a joy to behold. I love being able to share some of that beauty with a great photo. Mornings like this one on 22 November 2010 really capture Natures majesty!

Sunrise was beautiful this morning on the first day of Spring. I’ve been taking pictures every day this Winter and Spring. Most days it’s a short walk to the mailbox and along the road, some days it’s a little longer walk along the river bank, and on a few days it was ‘Open the door a crack, stick out the camera and take a picture.’

Here’s one of the photos I took this morning:

I think it’s one of the best photos I’ve taken these past few months. There were quite a few other good photos too, here’s another one taken of the dawn:

Of course… The dog really enjoys going for a walk in the mornings. She’s not easy to capture in a photo, just doesn’t stay put for long or hold a pose well. A few times the camera was able to capture her in a good picture. Here’s one of her drinking from water on ice in the Mississippi river a couple of days before the ice went out:

It’s been fun taking pictures every day even if it’s sometimes hard to pick the best one from a whole lot of good ones. And… There are a few days when it’s just hard to get a good picture. Oh well… That’s just the way it goes sometimes.

Had a nice afternoon float down the Mississippi river with some neighbors yesterday.

There were pretty reflections off the water as Jerry and Iona canoed along the eastern bank of the Mississippi river.

A pretty picture with fall colors along the banks of the Mississippi river as canoes and a kayak head downriver. Bob’s in his homemade wooden canoe. The other canoeists are John and Joyce and, Jerry and Iona. W is in the kayak.

After the trip, we all gathered at Gwen and W’s house for a potluck supper. What a nice afternoon trip and good food!

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year filled with joy and good cheer!

Here’s a photo showing the dawn of the new year. It was 3 degrees below zero and I didn’t spend too much time taking the photo of the sunrise across the Mississippi river.

May you all enjoy the coming year as much as Raven (my dog) and I enjoyed the dawn of the new year!

Sun on the River 1225 by Kent Lorentzen

This morning’s walk was along the Mississippi river. I took some photos of the sunrise and caught the sun’s reflection on the water.

There is still open water by my house even with the sub-zero temps we’ve had. Just a short distance downstream, the river has frozen over all the way across. If the water is low, the strong current often keeps a spot of water open all winter long.

Prices for Sun on the River 1225 begin at $13.58, subject to change.

Red Skies at Dawn 1128 by Kent Lorentzen

Another photo from this morning, looking at the orange red clouds above the Mississippi river. The pine trees silhouetted against the sky and the reflection on the water make a pretty picture.

November Sunrise 1133 by Kent Lorentzen

It’s worth looking out the window some mornings… Glanced out, and the
sky was so pretty… Picked up the camera, with a quick grab… Dashed out
the door… Snapped some pics.

This is one of them looking across the Mississippi river at the pines on the far bank with orange red clouds in the sky behind them. Reflections off the water add to the colors.

Now I need to get busy and get the rest of the pics uploaded!
