“Morning Light”
I woke up at 4:45 am, drove 25 miles, hiked 1/4 mile through a swamp to capture a scene like this. There was a moose in the pond next door stomping around, two swans swirling in the sky and a family of ducks joining me in taking in God’s great creation.

“Color River”
The Delta River in the summer can be a colorful place when the weather is good. We have had lots of rain this year, so our nice sunsets have been limited. Sebastian Saarloos
