Driving to work on the morning of 12/31/14 - I had never seen anything like this...Thought I would share - "Sun Halos / Sun Dogs"?
A lone tree was silhouetted by the sun, with sun dogs on either side. I shot this photo at about 8:00 a.m. on Dec. 31, 2014. The temperature was -1.
More sun dogs. 12/31/14

A beautiful sunset on Christmas Day 2014 south of Nelson, WI.
This was taken Thanksgiving weekend at The Christmas Farm in Mindoro, WI. They offered free horse drawn carriage rides & the snow was just beautiful.
My daughter has birds year after year that love this crabapple tree in her front yard.
This is the 2nd photo of the Trumpeter Swans - one day later after the ice was completely frozen on our pond.
I am submitting 2 pictures of Trumpeter Swans on our small pond. The first is when they were swimming in our partially frozen pond. The second is when 6 of them were walking on the ice in the same place on the pond.
This was taken near Blackhammer, MN on Saturday 11/1/14. What causes this?
Our family just finished this huge snowman on Sunday just in time for the snow. At night it has a spot light on it. It will be will us all winter because it is made out of wrapped hay bales.

This photograph was taken from a location east of Central High School (looking West) during the post totality phase of the lunar eclipse on October 8, 2014.
Twice a week I like to run in Hixon Forest and ended catching the sunset at the perfect moment. I was among 20 other hikers at the peak near dusk.
I love taking the long way home on our many beautiful area country roads. Saw this opening on Scenic Hwy 1 in La Crescent and captured my favorite time of day.
This poor scare crow was caught off guard by this snow storm but he still had a smile on his face.
