One of today's "keepers". It was 10 degrees with 25 mph winds that made for a wind chill below zero but the eagles on the Mississippi didn't seem to mind a bit

Titled "Sunshine Falls" this is a dry waterfall at the upper end of the canyon at Matthiessen State Park in Illinois. with the dry weather the only thing flowing over this falls was the sunshine.

The falls at Spruce Flats. One of the best, yet little known, falls in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. We had a wonderful 2.5 mile hike and nearly had the trail to ourselves. With so few visitors, there was plenty of time to shoot and wait out the lighting conditions

Bald eagle captured along the Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 14 near the Quad Cities. It was extremely cold and windy but great light. Most of the eagles have dispersed along the river because of the warm temps in late Jan early Feb but there were still about 10 at the lock.

Very overcast skies yesterday made for a bad light day. Made for a long cold day with few keepers. This was captured at Lock and Dam 14 on the Mississippi. Temps in the teens with wind chill around 3 degrees.

I titled this one "River of Roots" from our hike yesterday. With all the streams running dry, there are a lot of interesting formations now exposed. This tree was in the "Giant's Bath Tub" in the upper canyon of the Dells area at Matthiessen State Park in Illinois.

Black and white of storms blowing in over Mt. La Conte in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Our cabin was perched on a neighboring mountain with the fantastic view from the deck
