Ten Feet and Frozen

Every other Saturday, I take a photo of the water level in the beaver pond at The Commons. The pictures are strictly documentary and are used to graph the seasonal rise and fall of the water table on the property. Today is the first time the shot has been interesting beyond its intended purpose so here ya go.

Skywatch Friday #67

An eagle in the sunset sky down at Berry Point. There were seven or eight of them in the air so I made quite a few photos. Liked this one best even though there's only one bird in the frame.
