First Day of Spring 2010

Sunrise was beautiful this morning on the first day of Spring. I’ve been taking pictures every day this Winter and Spring. Most days it’s a short walk to the mailbox and along the road, some days it’s a little longer walk along the river bank, and on a few days it was ‘Open the door a crack, stick out the camera and take a picture.’

Here’s one of the photos I took this morning:

I think it’s one of the best photos I’ve taken these past few months. There were quite a few other good photos too, here’s another one taken of the dawn:

Of course… The dog really enjoys going for a walk in the mornings. She’s not easy to capture in a photo, just doesn’t stay put for long or hold a pose well. A few times the camera was able to capture her in a good picture. Here’s one of her drinking from water on ice in the Mississippi river a couple of days before the ice went out:

It’s been fun taking pictures every day even if it’s sometimes hard to pick the best one from a whole lot of good ones. And… There are a few days when it’s just hard to get a good picture. Oh well… That’s just the way it goes sometimes.

    Great photos – I especially like the first one of the Mississippi in the morning with the running water in the foreground and the quieter water in back (I clicked through to the page to see the details and your other photos). I’ve been on both coasts, but have never seen the Mississippi river – hope to do so some day!

    There are lots of beautiful spots on the Mississippi river and I’m luck enough to live by one of them. Hope you get a chance to see the river sometime.

    We’ve talked about taking a month or so to drive across the country. The Great River Road is one of the historical roads we’ve looked into (which would cover a lot of territory), along with old Route 66 (what’s left of it!) and some others. Not sure when we’ll manage it, but it’s always fun to plan!

  4. It’s really nice to know people are having fun with the things they do. And for a fact, there are a lot of things around us that are really beautiful. We are really blessed with beauty everywhere, anytime of the day and even during the night. And with all of these photos you have, I think all are worth sharing.

  5. Marvelous pics! These pics make me remember of days when i was there is Austin and me and my wife enjoyed the rain.

    I have bookmarked your blog in my delicious account and would love to revisit it again..

    What lovely photos! I finally broke down and got a very cool and easy to use digital camera and am having fun taking pix of grandkids, scenery, and craft projects for my website. I love seeing intriguing photos like these that give me creative ideas for photos. Thank you 🙂

  7. I love the second photo of 12 February 2010, look like a couple watching the sunrise. A much romantic moment. 😉

  8. Very nice photos. I like the way that you display them 🙂 look like a painting
