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!

I went for a walk yesterday morning after having a couple of icky days with rain and snow. What a change from a while ago when it was so nice and warm. It got was cold that morning… 20 degrees when I got up. I enjoy the water and like looking at how it flows in the river and ditches. Guess I’m still a little kid at heart, wading in the water and trying not to overtop the rubber boots, while seeing how close to the top the water can get.

Anyway… I had the camera and took some pics. Here’s one of water flowing from a culvert under the road on it’s way to the river. There was a layer of ice on the rocks and bank with a few green spears waving in the flowing water. The bubbles created by the splashing water created an interesting ebb and flow.
