Time-lapse Little Planet video of Red Rover. I moved the post-hole digger into a shed for the winter. Also, moved the snow-blower into the garage so it would be easier to start. I need to remove the front loader and install the snow plow blade. Project for another day, when it is a bit warmer… Snow and/or freezing rain predicted for Sunday night into Monday.

My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images.
