When I got up this morning it was snowing. Tonight it is clear and cold.

Spent the Thanksgiving holiday in Northern Wisconsin at my in-laws. I love going up there as there are so many photo opportunities. I drove by this place and had to come back with my camera. I can only imagine the stories that lay within it's walls.

Had a fantastic day with some of my fellow members of the Metro East Photography club down in St. Louis. We visited Powell Square, an old brewery then ended up at Union Power north of the MLK bridge. This shot is from the inside the old St. Louis Southwestern Railway Freight Depot.

Taken at Witch's Night Out in Lebanon. This is the second year I have attended and it is a lot of fun. I did dress up a little bit this time and I felt more comfortable taking pictures that way. I was part of the crowd and not just an interloper like last time. Can't wait for next year.
I love this woman's outfit.

I had an aisle seat on the flight from Denver to Portland. I was so hoping we'd fly over Mt. Hood and we did. I was also lucky to have an airplane window that was nice and clear. Scenes like this make me really miss my home state. You don't see this in Illinois.

A hell of a lightning storm rolled through the St. Louis region last night. This is one of the magnificent bolts that I was lucky enough to catch last night. According to the weather forecast I may get a chance to try again tonight.

Finally made it out to the World Bird Sanctuary. What a fantastic place. Lots of beautiful birds and you can get up close for photos. This is just one of many that I took and can be found at my Flickr site, http://www.flickr.com/matneym

Memorial Day at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, a photo by matneym on Flickr.
Such a large cemetery, so many graves, may the men and women who lay here rest in peace.

I was looking out the window last night watching the birds eat from the feeder when I saw this little guy hiding in the mums. I grabbed the camera and went outside as quick as possible hoping he would still be there. He was and I was able to get this photo before he took off. He was quite little but looked in good health.
This little guy was hiding in the mums by the bird feeder. I just happened to look down and see him. Love the little white spot on his head.

Some of the lightning storm that blew through from the big storm that hit St. Louis hard. We were lucky that we didn't get hit here in Troy. The clouds were rotating but nothing touched down.
