Swamp Roots

What I like most about this one is the branches (dead trees) in the water. It almost looks like there’s no ground, and you can see roots for the trees in the background. I get lost in looking at trees sometimes, especially when there’s patterns like this. Download: Swamp-Roots_Asgard_Photography_IMG_5987-scaled.jpg Camera Settings F-stop: f/16 Exposure: 1/200 […]

Wooden Web

While on a visit to my home town I made a stop at Deer Lake where I’d spent many hours of my childhood fishing and exploring. On this occasion I spent about 15 minutes there thanks to the mosquito convention that was apparently in town. What caught my eye here was the flowers, but the […]

Waiting for Lunch

One of my favorites kinds of bird at one of my favorite parks. After moving out of the U.P., Kensington Metropark has been a lifesaver when I’ve absolutely needed to get my head into the outdoors that wasn’t in the middle of town. And it’s got the added benefit of wildlife that lets you get a bit closer, even if they are usually a little demanding for a handout.

Swan Horizon

I’d intended to get some shots at Magee Marsh but they were shut down for hunting of some kind or another, so I ended up walking around the ponds at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge which is nearby. Not as much woods you can get into, but sometimes some birds… in this case I apparently found […]
