At The Station

Inside the train station in Madrid. I was struck by the live plants and the lines and light through the ceiling. It was an active place.

Slow Motion

No, these aren't in the wild but in a tank at the Quarry Hill Nature Center in Rochester, MN. But they were so photogenic and just sat there looking at me.

I already posted this on my regular blog but wanted to get it over here, too, as I sometimes do with my pictures. Anyway, the line of storms was moving in with showers seen in the distance.

One Year Ago Today (1)

Sunday Collage on Pine Creek Trail
Last year on Aug 3, I did the first 35 miles of the 60 miles for 60 years bike trip along the Pine Creek Rail Trail. The heron and the eagle were the center of the day. I made this collage at the time and re-post it for a one-year anniversary.
