I captured these two Does foraging @ Forest Park Nature Center  a couple winters ago.  They hardly paid any attention to my wife and I they were so busy eating.

I told everyone yesterday I’d show more of the Sunrise. Actually today’s first image is from the back of our home taken East, South-East, and the second image is another West, North-West view from in front of our home. It was an amazing Sunrise which covered at least one half of our home’s horizon.

Early Morning, Western Sky

I took this image this morning and amazingly it covered the entire sky from east to west.  Tomorrow I’ll load the eastern view which I shot over our garage.  Today just happens to be, garbage and recyling pick up. “I’ve always felt a little garbage never interfered with an image.”

Magical Sunflower

Well, I may have finally  lost my mind.  On a whim I deceided to experiment in Photoshop Elements with, “Radial Blur.” Actually, except for the, blurry leaf, at the front left of the shot, I’ m not all that disturbed with the finished product.  Any, it was fun.

Feel free to make comments, criticisms, if you don’t like it that’s OK also.

Early Summer Morning – Summer 2015

Early Morning Light - Early Summer 2015 Central Illinois

I thought you might like one last look at early summer – in our backyard – before deep Winter sets in.  We now have a new fence where you see a patch of weeds at the back of the image.  I’ve shown the fence in earlier images.

You’ll see WordPress has started the Winter Snow over this image!
