Calm before the next storm

The river was high today, but more calm than I expected this morning. I have completed my series of river photos for my book, but I can’t seem to stop taking them as I walk across the bridge on my way to the library each week.

Tonight I took my camera out under the trees by our house. This one is a favorite of mine. As I took this photo, I could feel a few tiny rain drops on my arms. More storms are coming.


Work in progress #3

I received a text message early this morning from my grandpa, asking if I wanted to go out and learn to kayak today. It has been a long time since I have been out on Long Lake. I had a wonderful time, despite how much my muscles are complaining now. The feeling of floating on the water in the middle of the lake is still on my mind though, and I thought maybe it was time to post this work in progress.
