I was going through some photos from my late September vacation to SD, and I decided this one deserved some Lightroom processing love:



This was during the annual roundup of the Custer State Park bison herd.

Just another day on the job. At least they waited until the temperature got above freezing. (Shot through the window by my desk at work, with my little Panasonic Lumix ZS50 at 26x zoom)

Friday we had warm moist air come up from the south over deeply frozen ground. That night there was a pause in the rain, so I headed outside to see what images I could grab in the dense fog that took the rain's place. (We're back to below freezing again now.)

That's one gnarly-looking tree. It looked like all the other trees were avoiding it.

View out the front door today. Just below freezing, and after a couple of inches of snow last night. (Catalina Bay, Eastern Newfoundland)

This tidal pond was still about 90% covered in ice yesterday. About 30 seconds after I took this shot, he and his mate flew off to find some water they could float on instead of walk on.

Yesterday I met a black-crowned night heron for the first time.



I've met mallard ducks many times, but this couple looked mahhhhhvelous yesterday.

Hoping to actually have a sunny weekend here in NJ without sub-freezing wind chills, so that I can get out for some new photos. In the meantime, here's a shot from a couple weeks back on a gray, chilly day in the park when I was practically the only one there.

Snow is nearly all gone, and it almost felt like early spring today.

Couldn't get an unobstructed view of this guy, but still a pretty cool pic. I'd guess his shell was around 5-6 inches long.

I'm in Pittsburgh for a work-related conference (RailsConf). They have several metal bridges painted yellow.
