The goal of this blog is to share the beauty of nature in central Ohio through words and pictures.
I am a retired engineer and have had a fascination and love of nature and the outdoors pretty much all my life. This fascination and love finds expression through photography, bicycling, canoeing, fishing, hiking, birding, and astronomy.
Cycling is usually day rides with some longer tours in places such as Ohio, Michigan, New York, and New England.
Canoeing is usually paddling the shoreline of the reservoirs and lakes of Ohio, Michigan, and Ontario looking for birds or other wildlife.
Fishing is for Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, using a small canoe or kayak on the lakes and streams of Ohio and Michigan.
Some of my favorite places to hike are: West Texas, Maine, North Carolina, and the Adirondacks.
Cameras: Panasonic FZ200 super zoom, Canon SX260, Canon G11, and a Canon T3i DSLR.
Astronomy is pursued at dark sites in Ohio and West Texas.
