There’s nothing quite like the quiet of a calm, isolated island or lake; so much more enjoyable on a warm summer day. We haven’t had many days of warmth here yet, but I’m certain we’ll get a few before fall…

As I post the calendar for the upcoming months, the ice is breaking up on our lake. Within a week we should be treated to the sights and sounds of the float planes in the air again. The Cessna 206 featured in this shot taken last year, was called on quite a bit while our Otter was off line for extended periods of time. It will be nice to have our whole fleet up and running for the 2015 fishing season.
Looking forward to hearing the movement of water and seeing the greening of leaves!

We are fortunate to travel back roads frequently. I typically have my camera on my lap and set for the conditions ready for whatever we might encounter. It paid off this particular day.
We chanced upon this cow moose grazing in the creek we frequently pass while heading to our cabin in the woods. I was able to slip up and out of the passenger side window to shoot over the roof as she was on the opposite side.
I snapped a few shots as she waded up and out of the water, her ears pivoted repeatedly to determine the extent of the threat we posed.
As she moved into the brush, I noticed another pair of ears, a smaller, lighter set.
The calf was likely napping nearby but quickly followed mom into deeper cover.
Just like when we were kids looking for shapes in the clouds, I love to see shapes in the piled up snow in the trees. While show-shoeing recently, I was startled to find this unusual figure. What do you see?
Although the worst of winter may be ahead, I delight in the knowledge that from this point on the calendar forward the sun will rise sooner and set later. 🙂
Shorter days and cooler nights are upon us. With a little humidity overnight, we get some great moody moments.
