Awww...Monday:Great Heron-Sunrise-Life's Good

Great Blue Heron Gliding Over Lake At Sunrise

 I certainly went Awwwww.....when I got home, and reviewed my shots for this day. I have not tampered with this photo other than to sharpen a little bit. This was taken last Thursday around 7:30 am right as the sun peaked over the hill across the lake. Since last Thursday we have had fog and mist. I am praying for sunshine this week. I am craving to get out with my camera and my big glass of ice caramel coffee.  

This week's 'Blog Of The Week' is...
I made this badge so please don't go by the image.  I hope he doesn't mind me taking the liberty.
He didn't have one so I snagged this picture and made one.
I don't remember how I ran across this blog. It is authored by Kieth Wynn who works in the field of higher education. I have been reading it for about two months. I find his musings very interesting. Many times I spend as much time reading some of the responses as I do his writing.  His actions and writings have proven to me that he chose exactly the right title for his blog.  I find him to be interesting, polite, gracious and conscientious. Whether you like dreamers, or not, his writings evoke thought and responses. 
~Let's Go Do The Hop!~
I can remember so many of the cars shown in this video that I was shocked.
Am I the only one that remembers the cars featured?
Oh go ahead and's fun!

  1. Hi there - if you take pictures like the heron, you are very welcome at WBW!
    Not every picture of a bird needs to look like one from a field guide - and I always encourage people to "push the envelope" for WBW images!

    See you on Wednesday!

  8. Oh how I wish I was there to see that one. How I long for Spring and Summer. Not so much the hot weather, but just all the beautiful colors and fresh air. I went out this morning to pull out hubby's car (running late AGAIN), and the air smelled like moldy dirt. YUK! I live about 6 blks from Fox river, but GEEZZZZZZ! Everything is just mucky & dirty in the winter! :( Love love love this pic! Thanks for sharing. Following you to dear! Thanks for stopping by.
