Sunrise over Lake Erie Drifts

Lake Erie reflects the rising sun on an early winter morning as snow drifts reflect the cold, blue, winter sky.

Poppies Looking to the Sun

This is a bit of a landmark image for me, photo #1000. I started this photo blog on February 1st, 2005 (after having previously displayed my images on another one of my sites for several years) with a photo of a Silver Cheeked Hornbill and posted daily up until a little while back.

Today’s photo, shot on my recent trip to the Bruce Peninsula with Scott is of poppies growing wild along the roadside. I am sure they had been part of a garden at one time, but the area appears to be overgrown now.

I hope to continue daily posting.  It does get tiring at times, and sometimes I need a little inspiration to put up a new photo.  I can’t say I will make another 1000 photos but I will give it a shot. The important thing is not to stop.  After a while, it almost becomes an addiction.

I haven’t done a good job up so far of advertising it, but many of my images here are available for sale but I hope to have that rectified shortly.
