Early Morning Light

Early Morning Light

I walked to our sliding glass door this morning at about 5:50AM and the sky just jumped out at me.  I shut off our ourdoor light and set the flash to off and this is the result.  The lights are in neighbors yards.  The furthest light is about a neighborhood block away – I believe.  I was shooting through the glass, as usual, when the temperature is low.

Early Spring – the Backyard

Early Spring - The Back Yard_edited-1This image started as a way to highlight the, Daffodils, in the lower front.  (that went well, they’re not even in focus.)  Anyway, l uploaded it simply to show how things are progressing in th Early Spring of 2016 in Central Illinois, U.S.A.

The Morning Dove

The pretty little gal below is in the process of gathering nesting material. If you’ll scroll down to the, A Fiery Western Sky, the post immediately below this one, you’ll see the fir tree where she’s building her nest.  You can’t see the nest but it’s about 2/3’s of the way up the tree.  At the time I shot this she was more interested in what I was doing than gathering her twigs, sticks, and grasses. (Sometimes known as the Turtle Dove.)

Another Fiery Western Sky

Just another Fiery Wester SkyMy wife and I are fortunate as our home faces the setting sun.  Two nights ago, again, the sky lit up with a, “Fiery Glow.” I’ve shown images like this in the past as you know, but I never get tired of their striking appearance.
