I love this smoky sunset photo taken on the Foundation trail in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. One of our favorite summer walks. It snakes through clear sandy creeks and towering pines. Then it veers through a quaint small town and finally meanders by the rolling Black River. But this year, the best part of this path was the drama in the skies.
Did you capture the fiery veil of our smoky summer skies? A couple weeks ago I missed a great local shot of the surreal sunset here in Minneapolis. But over July 4th in B.R.F. I had my camera ready. This one captures the sun radiating through the pine needles.
Downtown B.R.F. all decked out with petunias and flags for the 4th. I love small town fireworks. No traffic!
A town flower sculpture that is right up my alley.
I had to laugh at this row of gnomes. Since I love to travel, I guess you could say these guys are up my alley too.
We spotted this fawn (literally) at the side of the road.
These sand hill cranes were running to catch a big snake.
A pointy weed caught my eye.
But it was the pre-firework show that had me awe inspired.
By the time it hit the tree line it looked completely surreal.
Photoshop? Nope. The real thing. Or the surreal thing!
