Busy As A Bee

I wish I knew the name of this plant, but every year when it finally blooms, near the end of summer, it attracts the bumble bees. There are usually 20-30 bees on our two plants collecting pollen for the entire day. This pollen collection last about a month and now they are gone until next season.

The Scenic 10th Hole


It reminds me of the old Windows XP wallpaper that we all used to look at. A very scenic 10th green nonetheless.

Ride The Lightning


Is it just me, or does it look like a horse is running out of the lightning? I took well over one hundred shots with my Samsung Galaxy S20+ to get one semi decent lightning capture. Didn't have a tripod with me, so I was standing on my lawn snapping away. About three minutes of photo taking, a lower bank of clouds rolled in and the lightning show was over. At least I got one shot!

Just Outside My Window

We stayed two nights at a hotel on 7th Street in downtown St Paul last winter because we were attending a Minnesota Wild hockey game. That's not something we normally do since we live only 22 minutes away from the stadium. What a fun experience and highly recommended if you've never done that before. When we were in our hotel room, we were treated with this amazing view of the State Capital building.

Hasting Bridge At Sunset

The Hastings Bridge does have a lot of great locations to capture it well. Throwing in a blooming sunset just adds to it.

Muddy Waters

Last Friday's photo, I was on the Wisconsin side, looking at the Minnesota side of things. Well, today I am once again in Wisconsin and capturing the banks of Minnesota. Today I am in Prescott, WI at Muddy Waters Bar & Grill. It is one of my favorite summertime places to eat outdoors. You do get greeted by a loud train crossing the BNSF Railroad lift bridge that crosses the Saint Croix. Just adds to the uniqueness

Gone Fishing

Hope everyone gets out of town for the extended Labor Day Weekend that is upon us. While I was in Wisconsin when I took this sunset photo, the land on the other side of the St Croix River is Minnesota.
