Weekend Travels

The drive to Green Lake was amazing. There was a hard frost overnight. I started my journey just after 5:00 am. Mist was rising off the lakes in the cold morning air. Along the way I picked up a new quilting friend, Tina. She shares my love of fabric dying and nature. The shot above was captured as we crossed a narrow margin of Buffalo Lake near Packwaukee, WI.

Tina found a bald eagle in a tree. This was a the best of the two photos I captured before he flew off with his morning catch. It was a wonderful weekend full of communion with creative quilters of WQI. I find so much inspiration and joy when spending time with these women (and Bob). There were times I laughed so hard I cried. I'll add another post later this week about the weekend classes.

5.00 a.m. is the best time to drive. Glad you had such a great time, Chris. Laughter is so cleansing.

Chris I love your Photographs.. the sunrise was breath-taking!!! what a reward for getting up so early!!

We watched an eagle diving for mice in a big field that had just been hayed... Then It hung in the air about 4 feet above the ground with it's great wings flapping and dove again.. it flew off carrying a big bundle of hay .. don't know if the mouse got away or not...
