cracking ice n cabinIt has been a while since I put one of these up.

One might guess I’d stopped appreciating the beauty of where we live.

That would be a bad guess.

It is lovely here and I know it.

I took my camera out to capture a photo of the broken ice. When I zoomed in to frame it the way I wanted, one of the American Dippers who lives in OUR RIVER was in the frame!

That precipitated numerous shots, a few of which came out well.
