The Natural World

Finding beauty in everything is something I strive to do.

The world is full of wondrous and magical places, it’s easy to find and appreciate them daily.

Sadly, it’s easy to overlook those things & places and ignore their magnificence.

Every day, I try to seek out the beauty surrounding me, to appreciate the natural world we live in.

This morning as I climbed into my frost covered car, freezing my buns off and angry that I had to consider getting my windshield scraper out.  I noticed how beautiful the frost looked on my windows.  Instead of being upset that it’s this cold in November, I smiled and snapped a photo.  Enjoy!




Milwaukee is a beautiful city.

Unfortunately we’re already experiencing freezing temperatures, but that didn’t stop me from getting out and taking a few shots of ‘landmarks’.

The top two photos are along Milwaukee’s Riverwalk Downtown, and the bottom two were taken in the Village of Shorewood at Atwood Park.  It’s basically a sculpture of a man made up of random letters.

I wish you could see the marvelous Lake Michigan in the distance on the third photo.  If I could sync the sound of the waves and the cool crisp air of last night to this photo, you would really get an experience.  My boyfriend and I could have stayed out there all night if it wasn’t for the freezing wind.

I love that this course has me inspired to get out and see things that I normally don’t take the time to see and appreciate.  Last night was truly an adventure.


Picture of the day 3, Theme: Water

Here is a picture of the little bird bath in front of my house.  It always looks most lovely in the fall when the leaves from my tree fall in and sink to the bottom.  The natural water is always clear and still.  Occasionally, a perfect Autumn leaf drifts onto the water and makes for a wonderful photo.

Here is my photo of the day.  It’s a lovely street in Sussex, Wisconsin.

It’s very cold, gloomy & winter-like already.  Trees are bare and air is crisp.  This photo was taken on my iphone 6 with no filter, so it may appear a bit dark.  The clouds looked miraculous, so I didn’t bother brightening the photo.

Enjoy this little view of Wisconsin, it really is a beautiful place!
