Beaming Sunset by Kent Lorentzen

Glanced out late yesterday afternoon and saw an orange sky. Oh my… It was the sunset. Grabbed the camera, threw on a jacket, hat, gloves, and boots, then headed out to try and capture the lovely sky.

It’s so hard to know when taking the pictures how they will turn out and if any will do justice to the view. Several turned out decent and a few others could be improved if they were cropped

This one… Is just the way it came out of the camera.

Turned out to be a nice winter sunset with the orange beam of light shooting up into the sky. There are enough clouds to color the sky nicely with the orange tint from the setting sun. It’s not every day you get such a view.

February Sunrise by Kent Lorentzen

This morning’s dawn sky had pretty colors, so I grabbed the camera and went out to capture some photos of the pre-sunrise sky.

Here’s one that that’s not too bad:

I took this from the road in front of my house looking across the Mississippi river at the pine trees on the East bank. The river is completely frozen over and snow covered after the cold weather. You can see some snowmobile tracks on the river and there are a bunch of animal tracks too. Deer, fox, wolves, and whatnot.

Another photo of Monday’s sunset.  This one captured more of the sky and some of the snow in the field was cropped.  I’m often amazed at the colors during sunset.

There were pretty colors in the sky at sunset on Monday, so…  I took the camera out into the south field and snapped some pictures.  Here’s one:

Sunset Between Pines by Kent Lorentzen

Looked out yesterday around sunset, the cats were waiting to be fed, and saw the pretty sky. So… After feeding the cats I stepped out the door with the camera and took a couple of photos. I think this one, with the orange ray shooting into the clouds and a spot of orange reflecting off the snow didn’t turn out too bad.

Something Interesting by Kent Lorentzen

Raven’s found something interesting in the snow. What could it be? I don’t know! She loves to go and check things out.

We went for a walk the other day, in the south field at sunset, with me thinking I’d take a picture or two of the setting sun. Took several photos of Raven with her in different poses. This is one of them.

Icicle at Sunset 1261 by Kent Lorentzen

Finished up some outside chores just about sunset yesterday, so grabbed the camera and took some pictures. Here’s a photo of an icicle hanging down with the setting sun hidden behind it. A few clouds in the sky and the orange horizon make a nice background.

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.

Fun in the Snow 1233 by Kent Lorentzen

Raven (my dog) and I went for a walk in the snow this morning. She was good enough to let me get a picture of her playing and having fun in the snow.

After walking along the river and taking some pics, we hiked out into the fields behind the house. Raven was checking out the deer tracks and having a good time. I was so lucky to catch a photo with her in motion with a puff of powdery snow in the air. I’ve had a hard time capturing moments like that.

We were both happy to get back in the house after the walk, since the temperature was zero with a brisk breeze. Oh… I was dressed for it, and after all Raven has a fur coat. But… The buttons on the camera are too small to work with mittens on, so my hands got a little chilly.

Tree Top Star 1222 by Kent Lorentzen

I was inspired by something I saw the other day to try for this Tree Top Star photo. Almost waited till too late in the day to get this, as the sun was getting higher all the time.

Anyway… It’s a spruce tree in the front yard. Took a tripod out the front door and around to the side of the house. Took several shots from different positions.

I think this was the best of them, with a star glowing right atop the evergreen and the shadow contrasted against the fresh snow.

Too bad the power lines and my footprints in the snow show up in the picture. Oh Well! Guess you can’t have everything!
