The final post (for now) of images from the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is a variety of images taken from the 1.5 mile trail around the lake. Learn more about the sanctuary here.

I suspect most of you have noticed I have started putting a copyright notice on my pictures. A number of you have encouraged me to do so and it is probably something I should have done earlier. I don’t mind people sharing my images, but please do so with the copyright. If you would like a jpeg copy without copyright info please contact me at julie.nemecek@comcast.net.

As always, I appreciate your thoughts and comments.

Autumn

The smells and sounds of Autumn have started here in Michigan as well as some great Fall colors. In some spots everything is still green, but in other spots colors are near their peak.

A tree stand for deer hunting seems to be near every cornfield.

Most field corn is still drying on its stalk, which the deer do enjoy.

Foggy Morning

Snow came down in the center of the state, but here we woke to a foggy morning. I love the images you can get with fog. Here are a few from this morning.

Autumnal Sunrise

Pat and I set out early to try and capture some of Fall in Michigan during the golden hour (or two). A great surprise was to come upon a Great White Heron in one of lower Michigan’s many swamp lands. Enjoy.

Election Day

The images are not about election day. The title is just a reminder to vote if you happen to be in an area with elections today.

I have no thematic unity to these pictures (other than the photos being from the last week), just the images and your thoughts. The first two images are from a photo shoot at a bridge over a small lake. The water lilies and reflected cloud captured my eye as did the swans from the following picture as they whizzed through the air like leftover Halloween ghosts.

The leaves on the trees are well past their autumnal prime. Some trees are bare, some have turned brown, and some, like this tree, have just a few lingering leaves. The sparkling sun highlighted these leaves for me.

The last image is a picture of a picture hanging in our house near some similarly colored orchids.

Covered Bridge

As Pat and I were driving along (Pat driving), she spotted a covered bridge on a golf course (her eyes tend to wander when she drives and looks for pictures). We pulled off and captured some images from this golf-cart size bridge and its environs. Fore!
