Brooks Lake

On our way to Yellowstone, we decided to jump off the main road and take a jaunt through the Wyoming Countryside. I am so glad we did. We found Brooks Lake, and it was amazing. There was still snow on the ground (since it was June and we were in the mountains), the air was crisp and cool, and the water was pretty calm. With the mountains behind the lake, the scenery was absolutely amazing. I had to share this photo, and I hope you all enjoy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

This photo I found while digging through some of our trips my wife and I have taken. I forgot that I took this one, but I think it fits pretty well with this week’s photo challenge. This rock, which is part of the Monument Rocks near Oakley, Kansas, seems to be trying to escape from the overall formation. I can only assume that it used to be attached at one point, but is now on its own. Moving just as fast as it can, trying to get out of there. But truly, I think it’s just a Rock in a Hard Place.

Unkempt Horse

We had a big cold front come through on Monday, February 18. The clouds came rolling in, and the sunrise was amazing. I got out and was taking pictures, and this horse looked at me as though to say “It’s getting cold out here… Take me with you.” I realized at that moment I could not take him anywhere, especially since he had not even bothered to comb his hair. How absurd that he would think I would take him out looking like that!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illuminate

I got a new job. I started this past Monday, which has added to my lack of posting. But I think I might just be able to get back into the swing of things. At least for a while. So for my new job, I went to Mequon, WI for training. That area is beautiful, especially if you can take some time to run out to Port Washington, WI. It’s a smaller town, but right on the shore of Lake Michigan. There are many overlooks, and the town is very quaint, and very inviting to visitors. I went up there on the morning of January 15, and captured the sunrise. This is one of the almost 60 photos I took that morning, but I loved the red sky, the darker clouds, and the beam of light, reaching across the lake as though to begin waking up the sleepy little town. The morning was quite cold, but viewing the sky ablaze with the rising sun was warming to the soul. What a great start to the day! Hope you all enjoy!

Long time no post….

I know, I haven’t posted anything in a while. Sorry about that. With the Holidays, family, and work, I’ve been a little busy. But we got this AWESOME snowfall last night (New Year’s Eve), so I had to get out and get some pictures. This is a creek near the Kansas Historical Museum, which was partially frozen, but had a good amount of contrast with the snow and the dark water. Hope you all enjoy!
