cool clouds

These shots were taken last week on my way to work.  I need to get caught up on my posting here, because I have quite a few other pics from last week as well, and I just keep taking more.  These are all HDR shots.

psalm 27:1

The Lord is my light and my salvation;  whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the strength of my life;  of whom shall I be afraid?

Staron House

This is an old abandoned house a few miles from where I live.  I’ve been there quite a few times to take pictures.  I have a strong fascination with old buildings and this old house just draws me in.  I would love to see what it looked like when it was lived in.  I wonder about the families that have lived here over the years.  All I know about it now is that the family that built it was named Staron.  I have taken pics of this house in all four seasons, but I’m not very happy with the summer shots, so when the conditions are right, and I take new summer shots, I will post this house in all four seasons.  That said, I will post the shots I got yesterday.  If I ever learn the history of this house, I will post it.  The first two shots are originals, and the last three are HDR.

Chilicki Dance Hall

This is the dance hall that once stood on Old Highway 101 in Armstrong Creek, shown in all four seasons.  So far I have not been able to find any history on it.  The roof collapsed many years ago and it was torn down completely last year, so I am very thankful that I have these pictures.  This dance hall was just about a hundred yards down the road from the Chilicki Blacksmith Shop.  I have posted pictures of the blacksmith shop here also in all four seasons.

Old Homestead

Yesterday I went snowshoeing at an old homestead that belongs to some friends of mine.  The snow is still clinging to the branches, so I got some nice shots again.

Happy Trails!!

Winter Wonderland, Cont.

This is a continuation of my post from yesterday.  I had so many pics I decided to make 2 separate posts.  I posted 16 pics from my snowshoe trek yesterday morning, and now I have 16 more from the rest of the day.  After I got home from my walk yesterday, I ate, changed into dry pants and long johns and went right back out in search of more photo ops.  I took a ride out to the Popple River at Big Bull Falls.  The falls were frozen over, but I did find a few open spots.  I was hoping that the skies would stay blue all day, but it clouded over before I got to the falls.  On my way home I took a ride south of town to the Armstrong Creek.  I also went out to the Popple River on Morgan Lake Road in Fence, WI.  I went snowshoeing at an old homestead today, but I’ll save those pics for tomorrow.

These two pics were taken on Highway 101 on the way to the falls.

Open water on the Popple River downstream from the falls.

Standing at the falls, looking downstream.

I could hear water on the other side of the big rocks across the falls, so I snowshoe’d across to check it out.  There wasn’t much to see.  The falls would normally run right behind where my snowshoes are sitting.

Shorty Shack.  This little shack is less than a quarter mile from the creek.

I think this is an old square baler.

Happy Trails!!
