Rooted in Winter

Download: Rooted_in_Winter_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7424.jpg I’ve photographed these roots a few times, though I don’t think I’ve had a shot I’ve posted here before… I was tempted to add a bunch of clouds to the sky in this one… but resisted the urge.  This photo is a good example of when I like to use a lower camera angle, […]

Posing for Supper

I’d actually been crawling through the woods after a shot of a crane that was hunting fish… but this guy seemed to think I was the instacart delivery he’d been waiting for.

This particular day that I was there, things looked somewhat bleak overall, not a lot to draw the […]
