Sunset from the edge of the Ozarks

Pretty colors, huh? I climbed to the top platform of the big deer stand in the back pasture last weekend for a better view of the fall foliage at sunset. I think the view was worth the effort.

Another sunset

Sep 5th, 2006 | By

I took this photo from a roadside overlook at the junction of the Sauk and Osage rivers near Osceola. I’ve passed the spot dozens of times. Usually I’ve forgotten to bring a camera, or I miss the turn among the curves and trees. Monday evening I was prepared and lucky. It wasn’t the most magnificent

Contrasts

There’s an old pond near the house. I took this photo earlier this summer when the first flush of leaves fell from the trees in response to the drought. At the time, the pond’s surface and the treetops were the only green in that part of the pasture. The pond has since dried up, and

Day’s end at the pond

Mar 6th, 2006 | By

Tonight’s sunset provided the perfect close to a great day. Warm breezes, sunny skies, temperatures in the mid-60s, a perfect day for planting. We got the last two bundles of seedlings from the conservation department nursery into the ground — 25 each of Austrian Pine and Norway Spruce. The first of the yellow potato varieties

Still burning

Feb 2nd, 2006 | By

We’re calling this the volcano tree. It ‘erupted’ this afternoon while I was crossing my neighbor’s pasture to check on a couple of hot spots left from Tuesday’s fire. I heard a loud crackling and looked across the pond just in time to watch the top blow off this tree. Okay, maybe it didn’t exactly
