The one with the railroad.

As I left my parents house last weekend, the sun was just starting to rise. After about a half hour on the road I came to a crossing of railroad tracks and the sun looked perfect shining on them, and on the melted and re-frozen snow. This photo is unedited and au natural. I'm thinking of turning the sky purple just for fun. What would you do to this photo? Serious edits, fun ones, maybe photoshopping a starfish in there just for kicks?

The one with a face off

This morning there were 67 turkeys that trotted and strutted out of the woods. The toms were fun to watch.... And there was a buck that was out trying to get some of the leftover corn when the turkeys decided to go for a second helping. It was an all out face off between a whitetail and about 35 turkeys.

It worked out well for a couple of minutes before the deer decided that was enough and went back up the hill and disappeared in the woods.

At one point there were 4 toms out in the yard, 2 of which strutted together for quite a while before running after a couple of hens down by the lake. Aren't they pretty? And I haven't even had a chance to edit these photos yet.

The one where I take a mini vacation

This is my dad. Hi Dad.

I'm taking a long 4 day weekend and heading up North. Hopefully I'll get some great photos while I'm up there! I'm just hoping there's snow left when I get up there!

In southern Wisconsin today it was 63 degrees. It's warmer here than it is in Las Vegas. Which is where a couple of my good friends are flying to tonight. They weren't too happy it was warmer here than in Nevada, but that should turn around for them!
