A dragonfly prepares to take flight.
Scenic view of the coulee east of Milton, ND. At one time, this coulee would have been a river flowing into Lake Agassiz.
My attempt at a “tiny planet” picture, using a 360 degree panorama in the middle of a wind farm.
This large iron gate is the only indication a cemetery sits on this hill.
A few pictures of random things I’ve taken recently, that don’t really fit in with other groups of pictures.

I’m in a photo group that occasionally does topical challenges. These are a few I’ve taken for those.

For a snow and ice challenge, this is a macro shot of a window in my house after a strong cold snap caused frost to develop in a very detailed pattern.
A Water challenge. This a small waterfall at the Seattle Aquarium.
Our first challenge, something that represents the holiday season. These Christmas lights were highlighting the garland nicely.
For a Fall challenge – two combines work through the night.
Another for Fall, this was some stalks of grass ready to drop their seeds.
