There may be a good reason to buy a new zoom lens. Yes, this was a bear. He/she saw us paddling and decided to take the swim after we passed.
Needless to say, we canoed several miles down the river before picking our campsite.

This photo was created painting with a flashlight.
I set my camera on at tripod in the dark for 30 seconds and painted the clothesline with a flashlight.

The Big Dipper


Night photography was so much fun on our canoe trip this Labor day weekend. We canoed the Namokogon River 30 miles!
The big dipper was a 30 second exposure on a tripod and 100 ISo. Click on this picture and you will see it too!

The State Fair


Lily really enjoyed the Merry-go-round at the State Fair.
Another baby on the ride screamed all the way til the end. I had fun trying to get that perfect shot. Didn't quite get it, but this is a nice shot of mother and daughter.

Deep Fried Pickles


Ever have a deep fried pickle? Yumm

Wow! Isn't that a great shot in the sunset?
We flew to Eau Claire Wisconsin to get a bite to eat.
The evening was perfect for flying.

Grandchild number 2


Lily was mildly entertained during our 32 week pregnancy shoot today. She stood by long enough to check out the new sticker on mama's belly and a brief kiss to her belly.
