Good Times, Bad Times - May 2015

As an ongoing series:
   The good part of a 365Project is that it keeps photography in the front of the mind, and leads to pushing boundaries.  The bad side is that sometimes you post less that perfect images, just to keep up...  SO:  I decided to take the "favorites from the month" concept, and include "unfavorites from the month". 

We've looked at JanuaryFebruary, March, April , June and October (good and bad) and November.  I'm trying to roll out a new month every few days and finish by the end of the year.  Today, we'll jump back to May:



Tough month...  more bad than good...

Confluence

Rather grey day in the midwest, but warm. I had a little time and ended up at the Columbia River Conservation Area.  

This is the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, two of the key waterways in the USA.Taken from the Observation Platform at the Columbia Bottom Conservation Area.the little point of land in the distance is the break. Closer is the Missouri, further away is the Mississippi. Downstream, it's just the Mississippi.

I have a lot more photos to look through, hopefully there are some good ones....  stay tuned!

St. Louis Arch from Horseshoe Lake State Park


The arch is not quite 8 miles(straight line) SW of this edge of Horseshoe Lake, Granite City, IL. Horseshoe Lake is an oxbow lake, a leftover from a long lost meander of the Mississippi River.

Just a little wandering at lunchtime today...

Looking Back

So... yesterday, driving to work....  really cool ice crystals on the side view miror.  As I drove I kept thinking:  "I should take a picture of that".   About 1/2 to work, I decided to go for it.  I pulled into a parking lot, aligned the car for the right light, grabbed my camera and opened the window.

At which point the warm air the the car IMMEDIATELY melted the really cool ice crystals.

There's a lesson in there somewhere....
