What If …

Teresa and I hiked at Stillwater Prairie Reserve this week. I shot these photos with my drone. As you can see, especially in the second photo, we are starting to see some color. Its still late this year. I have noticed the walnut trees have lost their leaves, but most of the trees are still green.

On a different topic: I am not trying to make a political statement with this story. Clearly, by the number there has been a decline in some bird species. This is a sad read: Climate change threatens hundreds of North American bird species with extinction, study says.

So, what do the photos have to do with this issue? The migration is almost complete. I saw a few birds, but mostly of the non-migratory variety. It was so quiet. It made me think, what if it was like this year around .. and the birds of summer were not around. That would be sad.

Meanwhile, In Ohio

Fall is here. I noticed the trees are really starting to put on their fall colors. It’s not so visible in this photo, but it is happening. We plan to get out this week and try to photograph some of the early color. This shot was taken at Garbry Big Woods. We saw a lot of woodpeckers, but did not get very many photos. More to come!

Lush Landscapes

This is a cool photo. We took it along the Road to Hana, but I can’t tell you the exact spot. The lush greens, and the winding river is a beautiful video. Framing this image was tough. I wanted to capture the wider photo instead of just the water. I had the wrong lens on my camera, and didn’t have the right lens with me. My bad.

Aloha, Maui!

While we were in Maui we had several opportunities to capture the sunset. It was beautiful every time, but most nights there were a few clouds that kept us from getting a ‘perfect’ photo of the sun setting over the ocean.

The reality is, I love the clouds. They add an extra dimension to the photo. Here is a couple examples.

The video below is the 2nd from Maui. Enjoy!

Curves, Bridges and Waterfalls

public.jpeg

Teresa captured this photo while we drove the Road to Hana. So many falls.

The second photo was on the back of a t-shirt I saw on a guy in the aiport last night. The fine print includes these fun facts:

  • 617 curves (many hairpin curves)
  • 56 bridges
  • 52 miles
  • 3 hours

A very though drive!

As I type this, I am setting in the aiport in Minneapolis waiting for a flight to Dayton. Fun.
