Spring Things

Just that, some things from this spring.

Some from the yard, some from father afield.

Windy Walk

Record high temps (for February, anyway) and high winds prompted an afternoon hike through that old standby, Proud Lake State Recreation Area. Most of the snow has disappeared but the swamps were still frozen under a thin layer of meltwater.

Started out sunny but clouds rolled in and killed the photography vibe.
Hiked out after dark.

Frost-Free February

Been too warm to safely ice skate so I took a walk out through Proud Lake State Recreation Area. No snow but still a layer of ice in the swamp that the skunk cabbage is busily melting through.

Night and nebel

It’s been quite foggy the last few nights and I finally got out and tried to photograph it.
