Nature Around Us

I hope no one is getting tired of seeing the old pictures taken by Jake.

I enjoy sharing these older photos, another reason I am choosing to share them now is that there are not very many photo opportunities around right now.


Near Morden, Lake Minniwasta is usually a good place for photos. The sun is giving a wonderful warm, rich glow to this scene.



A number of years before Jake's passing, we heard about this large white bird at a nearby marsh. We went there and found this Great Egret. This only one of many pictures captured, but it is most certainly my favourite.



Many a day around sunset, Jake and I would head out in search of that perfect photo.
This was what he was looking for. 




It doesn’t have to be a large body of water to give love reflections .



If memory serves me right, the year was 2008. That fall was one of the most spectacular I have seen. This was at our local park,not a very large place, but the views were breathtaking.


 Think about this:

You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it.

  9. I would never get tired of Jake’s photos. I actually think I learn from them. I’ve discovered that when I find a photographer with an excellent “eye” I spend some time studying the photos to see what I can do to put that into my own photography. So, thank you, and please keep sharing Jake’s photos and your own as well. By the way, compliments on your January header … wonderful as always!
