Yesterday's shots

A dreary, foggy day, rain +2C.  A lot of overnight rain knocked back the snow.

But I had to go out, the dog wanted me to.  LOL

50+ years ago, I loved playing all around here.  This bridge, now pedestrian only, is at the bottom of a very steep hill.  My brother bought a speedometer for his bike and we'd try and get to 50mph coming down.  I did ditch once and was full of scrapes and bruises.  We built log forts, shot each other with slingshots and bb guns.  A lot of water under the bridge since then.

In the space of 2 years the Emerald Ash Borer decimated every ash tree in our forests.  Some places it was 80 percent of the trees dead, EVERY ASH, just left the others.  Here you see some big ash logs.  They tried cutting a huge swath of them just between Lake Huron and Erie, but to no avail.  Again, bad light, fog, and rain.

Above, messing with Lightroom presets.

Just when you think there is nothing much of interest...a wine glass in a forest.  Nice.
