This is downtown Eau Claire from last fall. I’ve been waiting for us to get a good proper snow day so I can get a winter shot. So far, no luck.
Brown Season can turn into Snow Season any time now. I was going to go on a bike ride today, but it turned out to be one of those damp days in the 30’s where no matter what you do you can’t stay warm and then suddenly you’re over heated, so today’s ride turned intoContinue reading “Brown Season Continues…”
I managed to wander off without my camera this morning, so all a have for you today is a quick cellphone snap of the Eau Claire River. It was an absolutely stunning day today and with temps in the 40’s the bike riding was great. The building in the distance with the smoke stack wasContinue reading “Eau Claire River/ Uniroyal Tire”
I’m late. Boiled cider is a fall must have around my place and I’ve usually made some up long before the end of October. Boiled cider is exactly what it sounds like: get some good quality, local, freshly pressed cider, and and boil it down to a syrup, concentrating the flavor along the way.

Today the dam and pond provide hydro power and water for a paper mill thatContinue reading “Dells Pond”
Please forgive that the photos aren’t stitched together in a proper triptych, my photo editing software epic failed me in this endeavor. Some people save their money and time off to go on grand adventures in faraway lands, or spend weeks at a time hiking or paddling though wildernesses. Those options sound great to meContinue reading “Everyday Adventure Triptych”

It’s Twofer Friday… I misjudged the position of the sun and got down to the Short Street bridge to shoot this later than I should have. Also, I think this will be a better shot in a couple weeks when the sun is a little lower in the sky. It looks a little darker onContinue reading “Sunset On The Chippewa”
Never mind the odd crop; this photo’s a bit of rescue. Even as a rescue, I think it worked out good enough to post. The dimpling on the surface of the river is some sort of huge insect hatch coming off. It always surprises me that things hatch this late in the year.
