For Those Who Love the Spring

Just three days till Christmas, with hearts beating faster and expectations raising, I thought I would bring some memories of the season-to-come. As I write this post, I am looking out our large Living Room window to at least a foot of snow on the ground, with Christmas day right now forecasting at a high of 25 deg F. and a low of 6 deg F. Tis the season for snowfall!

Yet, I have always found it nice, especially in Michigan, to remember what springtime is like during the cold and harshness of winter. Don’t mistake me! I love winter for what it is and enjoy the snowfall. One of the reasons I do, though (and this is just one of the reasons), is because I can dream of springtime to come, and springtime would not be springtime without a winter to come before it (to at least some degree).

I hope you enjoy the spring videos below! I had nothing to do with the production of these videos, but I love the song of the birds and the rush of the rivers.

The last video below is particularly special because I spent the first eleven years of my life living in southern Indiana, and this video was recorded in southern Illinois. The nature sounds remind me of many a summer evening in Indiana!

Fall images of the Day

Hello everyone!

As autumn time comes around again and the festivities begin, I thought I would take a few pictures of the state of our leaves right now. Now that we’ve gathered our firewood for the year, leaf blowing and raking comes next!

Ten Hour Nature Video – Wind in the Pines

Hello everyone! Below is a nature video I recorded behind where I live. I recorded it to gain visuals and sounds of nature and have finally published it just today. Listen to the birds, wind rustling trees and grass, flies, chirping insects, bees, distant cars, and more. I hope you enjoy!

Also, a quick note on my book Treasure on the Southern Moor that is now in the bookstore, I am currently waiting on my complimentary copies to be printed and shipped. As soon as I receive them, I’ll do a video showcasing the book!

Pine Tree – Nature Blogging

Here are several pictures of a pine tree in a field off our backdoor that I took today. The sky was sunny and clear. (I was glad that it didn’t rain because I’ve been chainsawing dead trees to prepare for our winter storage of firewood.) I hope you enjoy!

Also, a quick update on my book Treasure on the Southern Moor. My publisher has completed the e-book version for it! It should be popping up on amazon and other sites shortly, and the paperback version (as I like to call the real version) should be available within a few weeks or less. Part of the delay is due to the national news hurricane Irma. It just so happens that my publisher’s offices had to be evacuated, yet they are planning to resume normal work soon.

Tahquamenon Falls – Nature Blogging

Here are a few pictures a took a couple years ago when my family and I vacationed near Tahquamenon Falls in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. There were two sets of falls, the upper and the lower. I cannot remember what all I photographed, though it appears that the first few pictures are the lower and the last few are the upper. Enjoy!

A Pine Tree / Spider Web – Nature Blogging

Right after filming my read-through of my eleventh chapter of Treasure on the Southern Moor (find out more information of this book in my bookstore), I saw an interesting looking web blowing in the breeze between the branches of a pine tree. The camera doesn’t pick it up too well, though you can still see where some of the dew or condensation of the morning was still on the web (it was a very foggy morning!). Enjoy the video!

Also, check out the final artwork for my upcoming book!
