As usual, Diana and Irene have beautiful Christmas decorations to lighten up our lives on long winter nights:


New addition this year:  Comfort station on the right for S.C.:


Little creek from Grundy Lake to Portage Lake at Hwy 522:


Road down to Portage Lake at the mail boxes …


Hwy 522:


Looking West from Young’s Road …


Balsam Creek Road …


Back on Hwy 522 …


Hallie’s place … with …


… two wild turkeys at the end of the snowmobile tracks (as seen through the hand-held Panasonic – Leica 100-400 mm telephoto lens at 800 mm equivalent focal length … and cropped):


More snow forecast for the next few days, making the critters and the photog happy.

    • Diana…I didn’t realize until now that it was your home. I spent so much time in that house with your sister Judy, when I was young. Your mom was always so kind to me.

  4. Thanks Pat, Krys and Diana!
    I appreciate your appreciation for my little works of art. All I do is try to capture the works of nature and people and to show it to the world, in case it hasn’t been seen before.

    All the best in 2017! Keep healthy & warm and keep on “seeing”.
