A new year…

I start the new year off with yet another water shot… but this was what I saw this morning when I looked out the window. In a way it’s fitting for me, things are a bit “foggy” as I look forward.

Many good things are happening, some young family members are getting married this year, my employer has plans to build the company, my son is heading into an exciting career as he finishes college and I have some new ideas to expand my personal photography, which undoubtedly you will see here.

At the same time, some senior members of our family face health challenges while  our country faces many changes – I’m not going to talk politics on this site but everyone agrees — things are going to be different. We shall have to wait and see if they are good or bad but here is to hoping for the best for all of us.

Sands of time…

A summer storm had caused the river to overflow the normal banks, when the water receded back to normal levels this peninsula was left covered in sand.

Within a few days the hot summer sun had baked it hard and dry leaving a desert like scene. Animal tracks became semi-permanent records of it’s passing visitors, showing the daily routines of beavers, muskrats, dogs, a variety of birds and a multitude of other small woodland creatures.

Small shellfish trapped by the quickly receding waters now were frozen in the sand, some becoming dinner for the local wildlife while others mimicking real life fossils giving the illusion of eons of years having past.

A month later grass had reclaimed the point leaving only my photos until the next flood arrives, repeating the cycle.
