Dog Greeting Sunrise

Mornings are such a great time of day, often with a beautiful Sunrise. The dog and I often enjoy taking a walk as the day dawns. There is always something that catches the eye and interesting to look at. One August morning the Dog jumped onto a hay bale in the field and looked out at the dawning day… I was lucky enough to be where I could get a nice photo of the dog sitting on the hay bale with the Sunrise in the background. This has to be one of my favorite photos.

The Dog Following a Trail

Came home with a photo of the dog smelling a trail she was following. Only took a few photos this morning on a walk along the edge of the Mississippi river. Saw some interesting tracks, but nothing that looked like a good photo.

It looked like the cat had been out hunting and made the tracks the dog was following, she poked her nose down in every footprint as she followed the trail.

I was lucky enough to get ahead with the camera and take a few photos. It’s always a guess how they will turn out when taking pics of a moving critter.

I was happy to see that this turned out okay. The lighting and background were decent with some nice contrast in the scene.

Walking on the ice got me to thinking about when it would go out and the river open up all the way… It usually happens sometime in March. When, just depends on the weather. Could be almost any day if it really warmed up or rained, or might wait a few weeks yet.

Favorite Sunrise Photo from 2011

When you go for a walk in the morning with a camera you never really know just what kind of pictures you’ll get. One of the fun things is seeing what the photos look like full size.

The morning of this photo I took a number of pics. Several were from almost exactly the same spot, a place where a couple of decent pics were taken the week before.

Here it is… My Favorite Sunrise Photo from 2011:

And… Here are two photos taken the week before in almost the same spot:

What is amazing to me is how different these last two photos are from each other when they were taken only a few minutes apart from almost the same spot.

Even tho I like all three photos, the top one with the Sun shining thru the tops of the Timothy Hay is my favorite. Aren’t I lucky to live on a farm in Northern Minnesota where there are so many great chances to take pictures?

Pretty Pink Fairy Shelters Photo

Mushrooms were plentiful in 2010 and a pleasure to check out on photo walks. There was something new and different to see every day. And… There was always the hope that I’d get to see a Fairy hiding under one of the mushrooms.

Pretty Pink Fairy Shelters are shown in this close up photo of pink mushrooms taken in Northern Minnesota, as the day dawned on 24 June 2010. Despite careful observation no fairies were spotted, they must have all been hiding.

Ummm… After enlarging the photo and examining it carefully, the wing of a Fairy might just be poking out from behind a blade of grass, and showing up in the photo. Yep, It just has to be a Fairy hiding out there. :)

The photo is also available on Greeting Cards.

My New Homemade Wooden Trucks

I decided to try my hand at Handcrafting some Wood Toy Trucks. They turned out fairly well so I took some pics of them loaded with mini straw bales.

I thought this photo might look nice as a print or on greeting cards so have it available as canvas, paper, or acrylic prints, and on 5 x7 greeting cards.

You might be wondering about the trucks… Well, a couple of them are for sale on Etsy.com.  I’m also planning on having some for sale at the Grand Rapids Farmers Market, when the Season opens.

All in all… Making the primitive style wooden toy trucks was a great experience and fun project along with a chance to pretend I’m a kid again. Having fun taking photos was an added bonus.
