Our Cabin: A 30-Day Comparison

What a difference 30 days can make.  The photo on the left was taken early November.  The one on the right was taken today.   Just yesterday temperatures climbed to 60 F.  Today, snow and colder temperatures.  Welcome to Indiana.  Personally, I miss the beautiful fall colors but I have come to terms with “winter is…

A Lovely Walk in a Fall Forest

With my Nikon in tow, I took a stroll through our woods last Monday.  I am glad I did.  The fall foliage was at its best.  This beautiful fall day was followed by several rainy days in a row.  Leaving many of our trees with fewer leaves. Click on any photo above to view a…

Some Trail Maintenance is Needed

The other day I ventured off with my camera in hopes of capturing the peak fall foliage of our woods.  I was surprised to see so much green left.  Along the way I stumbled upon a few new trees down across our paths.  Looks like it’s time to spend a day clearing some trails. Next…

Acorns Are Falling…Find Cover!

It is a war zone at our cabin in the woods.  Acorns are falling like mad.  With each hit of an acorn on our deck or roof it sounds like we are under attack. I took this picture today after sweeping up our patio.  This pile is only two days’ worth!  Crazy how many have…

Critters From Our Woods

Since living at our place a little over 3.5 years, I have encountered a variety of critters.  Unable to photograph many of them, here are a few I had the pleasure of capturing digitally.  (I had to include one of Josie our Boxer.) In addition, I would like to dedicate this post to a special…

A Butterfly Sanctuary of Our Own

A short walk from our cabin there is a place where butterflies flutter free.  Here they thrive on wild growth.  On any day one will encounter 20 or more.  Flying above your head, dipping here and there, or resting on a tall pink flowering plant.  Last year I do not recall as many.  But this…

Raindrops Everywhere

We have had a lot of rain lately, making raindrops the perfect subject matter for this week’s photos.

So Much Green!

Our place in the woods along with some beautiful, still ripening homegrown tomatoes. *NOTE:  Just today I received this message from WordPress. “Starting August 1, Facebook will no longer allow third-party tools to automatically post to Profiles.”  With this option to share content directly to Facebook going away, after this post I will no longer…

Shapes of Nature

Without the Weekly Photo Challenge, I devised my own. Shapes of Nature

Night Frog After a Rainstorm

While taking out scrapes to be dumped I happened to notice this guy.  It looks like he is hanging on to the side of a boat about to be sick.  Maybe the tomato pot is making him “seasick”.   Cool little dude after an evening of thunderstorms.  I’m sure he was happy when the lady with…
