Flame Art 2012

Red Raven Retreat | Willow River, MN 2012

Ribbons of flame curl the once green 3-inch pine needles
Nature sculpts her own Flame Art

New Fallen 2012

Red Raven Retreat | Willow River, MN 2012

Crystal kaleidoscope gathered
Perched atop the small bud
Patterns drawn in my mind

November Ice 2007

Pigeon Falls | Grand Portage, MN 2007

An icy cold November day, worth the trek.
Often times we think that winter has no color, look close at the tree line
varying shades of red draw a line along the rocky header.

Frosty Reminder 2012

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

Dangling above and zoning out as I peered over the rail into the frozen lake
Embedded in the solid moisture is a reminder of another season

Red Squirrel Totem

Red Raven Retreat 2012 | Willow River, MN

One of a family of seven. The woods were moving with curious red tails all afternoon.

The chatter and whistles of 6 babies old enough to run as momma looked on from above.
