Still Standing

IMG_2929This tree, long dead, stands at the center of a golf course that is going back to nature.  It’s a fascinating process and this has become one of my favorite places to take pictures.

Moonset/Sunrise

IMG_2174

This was taken in Grand Haven, MI looking west, shortly before moonset (full moon) in March.  Sunrise was about a half-hour after moonset on this morning.  This is from the same morning as photos I posted a couple of weeks ago, except closer to sunrise from the east.  The sky was getting progressively bluer.

In the End Winter Is Fleeting

A couple more photos from February, when the Grand River was almost entirely frozen over in downtown Grand Rapids, MI.  This same river was badly flooded a mere week later.  See this post for pictures of the flooding.  To a native of the south like me, this scene is otherworldly.
