Misplaced Goose

public.jpeg

This is the Greater White-fronted Goose .. well, Geese. I have not seen any of these geese in Ohio, but they were gathered in large numbers around Richmond, Indiana. At first, I thought they were ducks, but once I zoomed in and could get a better view, I realized they were geese.

The greater white-fronted goose is a medium sized goose. They are usually seen west of the Mississippi, but not on this day!

Peaceful

I don’t post many landscape photos, but this scene was beautiful. It was a mostly clear day, and the lighting was perfect. The surface of the water was like glass. The sky line was not great, but I still love the shot.

We had just finished taking photos at the falls near Richmond. On the way to the car we hiked by this pond. The scene caught my eye immediately .. and so here it is.

Mallard Hangout

Yes, I have photographed a lot of Mallards in the past, but these photos are different. Maybe they are molting, but they have a different appearnce than most male Mallards.

I love both of these photos. I photographed these at a park while we were hiking at the Whitewater River Gorge just outside of Richmond, IN.

Extra water

Teresa took this photo earlier this week. This pond was frozen, but it was starting to melt. I was shocked at the water levels. I don’t recall seeing it this high in the past.

For reference, the second photo below was taken earlier this past fall. The difference: other than temperature and the color of the grass ... at least 18 inches.

The little things

FullSizeRender.jpg

It was a hot summer day, and we were visiting family. This location is just outside of Marrow, Ohio. This is not a special bridge but I love what it adds to the photo. It’s a little thing ... but those little things make life better.

Life has finally back to normal. It has been a very difficult 5 weeks for our family. I will blog about it soon but let’s just say this: Hug those you care most about daily and tell them how much you love them.

Have a good day!
