I began taking digital photos in 2013 and have developed a collection of many thousands. I am in the process of moving my favorites off of social media sites and onto this website.

The woods in winter

Peninsula State Park in Fish Creek, Door County is one of my favorite places. Last January we spent a long weekend there for a winter getaway. I took these photos walking along a hiking path in the woods. Wherever there was water, we found large chunks of ice! The final two photos of the  lake ice are my daughter's, taken with her iPhone.

Snowy river, trees, & berries (Dec 2013)

The first photos below are from a weekend outing in later December, 2013 with my daughter. We walked from our home to a nearby park, enjoyed some playtime there, then ended up at the local coffee shop for hot cocoa. What wonderful memories of a lovely, snowy day! I took the others on a separate occasion just outside the apartment door; one tree was laden with red berries and another framed  our view down the street.

Winter Morning, 2013

I took these  photos on Christmas morning 2013 in my mother's backyard. Snow had fallen overnight and the yard was untouched. I love photographing everyday objects; I found these even more interesting layered with snow and ice.

Christmas Show at The Domes

The Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory is known in Milwaukee simply as the Domes. If you live in Milwaukee, chances are you know the Domes well! They are a Milwaukee County treasure. Each year there is a Christmas display in the Show Dome. A family member works there and treated us to a private tour recently. Here are a few images of the poinsettias and other decorations in this year's Christmas display.

Fruit, Leaf, Star, Tardis (& More)

In this last ornament post I've included a miscellany of my remaining favorites. The beeswax maple leaf and angel ornaments were made by my daughter  in her Waldorf school. We acquired the tardis lights during daughter's Dr. Who mania in middle school. The shelf-sitting tree with candle-in-apple sweetly reminds us of holiday cheer. Merry Christmas to all!
