Something bright for today on a bitterly cold day.  This is a macro image of a Poppy from New Mexico at the Chama Station.  I am trying to grow some Poppies in my garden.  It will be interesting to see what happens with them this year.

We are having winter weather again today, not as bad as predicted but you never know how it will go.  This image today is from last week after we had a Thunder and Lightning storm with sleet.  I froze a bubble in some sleet that's why is looks like it is sitting on little balls.  I'm posting a bit early today as well because I took some vacation time today.

This is something fun for today.  I was collecting rock in Minnesota near a pasture.  This cow came from quite a ways away to see what I was up to and stood and watched me for a while.  I would have loved to have the rock it is standing beside but...alas....  😃

We are having a bit of spring before we head into winter again on Friday.  I felt like something colorful and cheery today so here are some leaves from my beautiful Maple tree.  I call it a Red Maple because the leaves ended up red but maybe it has a different name.  It was beautiful whatever it's called.

We are seeing the sun today and warming up as well.  How nice.  I can post a shot from a very cold day last week.  Ice crystals had formed on the storm door in interesting patterns.  I thought this capture of some of them reminded of sea creatures.

I thought I would post something cute today.  Even Chipmunks like large scale trains.  This is a little Chippy that I captured running around the rails of the Wagner train I get to run up in Minnesota.

Today's image is actually a fairly old image now but it is still one of my favorites.  I just love how it turned out with the light.  It has been long enough now that those of you who have been with me for 2000 plus posts may not remember it and new followers can enjoy it.  I was able to attend a night shoot at an Owosso Michigan Steam Fest 10 years ago now, my how time flies.  This is the Southern Pacific Daylight and the Pere Marquette 1225 sitting under steam at the turntable for the shoot.
