Good Day My Friends!
Obviously I’m not in Dubuque at the current time. More about that later. I hope you enjoy some of the images that I’ll be posting over the next few days.
Over the years I have photographed many Blue Herons. But when I saw this guy and he appeared as a silhouette because of the light I had to capture him. I was pretty happy with this image.
I saw this commercial fishing vessel. Although it was not on waters as dangerous as “The Most Deadly Catch” I felt like I had to capture it.
Hope you enjoy these images. More to come so stay tuned. Remember to click on the image to make it larger and to show far more detail.
Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
As they use to say on the Monty Python show, “and now for something completely different.”
I made these images last week while visiting the Mississippi River. I can never pass up an opportunity to photograph a sail boat especially on a bright sunny day that make the muddy Mississippi look all blue and pretty.
This pair of Mallard Ducks were just riding the waves watching the world go by. Didn’t seem to be the least bit bothered by my picture-taking.
Lock & Dam #11. Part of the Lock and Dam series of flood control up and down the Mississippi River.
Nothing much else to report. Having coffee with an old friend this morning and then trying to finish up some projects I have promised to other friends.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day, cooler and rainy here today. Be careful.
Jeanne and I went to the river yesterday morning after watching Dubuque’s Labor Day Parade. It was a beautiful day with a lot of puffy white clouds against a brilliant blue sky. The temperature was 64 degrees, a near perfect day (weather wise) for me.
I shot a bunch of images at the parade and I’ll show a couple of those later in the week. There isn’t a lot you can do with parade pictures but I have a couple of Josh enjoying the parade.
There were two sail boats on the river when we were there. I have not seen sail boats on the river this year so it was interesting to see them. The only wildlife we saw was an occasional gull and a couple of ducks flying by the lock and dam.
It was great just to be outside and experience the sights, smells, and sounds of the river on a perfect weather day. We ended our little adventure at the Copper Kettle restaurant for lunch. Great food and service make it a very nice place to have a meal.
That’s it for today. I have a wedding to shoot this Saturday so I have to be thinking about that. Also it is the first week of the new training program I’m doing for the Chamber. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
