I am a retired engineer with a fascination and love of nature and the outdoors. This finds expression through photography, bicycling, canoeing, fishing, hiking, and birding.
The goal of this blog is to share to beauty of nature in central Ohio. Occasionally the blog will cover areas of natural beauty not in central Ohio.
Along with my photos my wife also contributes her photographs to this blog so is has become a very enjoyable and rewarding collaboration.
Cycling: rides and some longer tours in places such as Ohio, Michigan, New York, and New England.
Canoeing: reservoirs and lakes of Ohio, Michigan, Florida, and Ontario looking for birds or other wildlife.
Fishing: Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, using a small canoe or kayak on the lakes and streams of Ohio, Michigan, and Florida.
Favorite places to hike are: West Texas, Maine, North Carolina, Florida, and the Adirondacks.
Cameras most often used by my wife and myself: Panasonic Lumix FZ200/300, Panasonic G7 DSLR with 100-400mm zoom lens, and Canon DSLRs using Sigma and Tamron zoom lenses.
