Really like this one!
Truly beautiful, 2X7.
You live in a very lovely place, and you have a heart that knows it.
I well remember the east shore of Lake Michigan, 2X7. Lived for 3 years south of Benton Harbor. Lake Effect Snow was a marvel to me.

A one-legged galinule. It was hopping around like a pogo stick. (taken with i-phone) ...

Image

Its' leg may have been bitten off by this small gator in the pond nearby, (taken with i-phone) ...

Image

Or, the gator may just be eyeing this bullfrog sitting close by, (taken with i-phone) ...

Meanwhile, after a short rain, we continued fishing for bass around the lily pads, (taken with i-phone) ...

Beautiful roses, Goose.

I carried my camera out to the mailbox and shot this just now, mid-day. The light this time of year is usually too harsh to shoot except in shade mid-day, but the sky was so deep blue, I think maybe this one worked simply because of the richness of the colors.

Wowser. Those are all three great images, 2X7. And that camp sit looks so nice and secluded. It that near Lake Michigan? The soil looks sandy.

You have a good eye for composition. The 2nd pic especially says so. Nice light & signature clouds. And the image draws one into the scene w/ the lower left to top right lines.

Keep posting !! I love it.

Thanks!

Yeah Goose, Lake Michigan is just over the bluff on the right side of the photo. Couple hundred yards away or so in total.

Nice photos, Moose. And I love that Milky Way image, DP. Makes me think of the old TV series, Lost In Space. When I try to think of the vastness beyond "our" own galaxy, I get a head ache.

Very nice, Archer.
I'm quite fond of nature "detail" photos.
