Views of the North of Ireland

The photographs of this blog are of the North of Ireland during our recent visit. We traveled mostly along the coast from Dublin to Ennistimon. Fortunately, we had only a little rain but lots of clouds that rolled in and out leaving periods of sunshine making the green of the hills greener than green (IContinue reading “Views of the North of Ireland”

From the Air Between Newark and O’Hare

Last weekend Suzanne and I travelled from Milwaukee to visit our family in New Jersey. The photographs are what can be done with an iPhone 13 and a bit of post processing as we passed along Manhattan toward Newark Airport on the way out and crossed Michigan to arrive at O’Hare Airport on our return.Continue reading “From the Air Between Newark and O’Hare”

First Snow Fall 2022

More Foggy Mornings

The last few days have been spectacular as the sun is coming up and the fog still lingers over the lake low-lying areas of the Nature Center and the frost has turned the grasses white. These photographs are more of that beauty. At one point yesterday (10/29/22) the water droplets were large enough and denseContinue reading “More Foggy Mornings”

This blog is more photographs of fall colors. This is Westway, a street in Greendale. It’s always beautiful in the Fall and thisContinue reading “More of Spectacular Fall Colors”
