342. Underneath

I took this photograph of the bridge that crosses the Mississippi River, linking the state of Wisconsin to Dubuque, Iowa. I took the photograph from underneath the superstructure.

The Tall Ladder

278. Shades of Gray

278. Shades of Gray

Gray barn, gray roof, gray ladder. Shades of gray. I’m not sure exactly who would climb that ladder. It’s a very tall ladder. I’m beginning to think it is simply there for decorative purposes. It’s been in that location for the past several years, and never once have I seen it used.

All But Forgotten

Bicycles stand in the snow near a dormitory on the campus of the University of Wiconsin at Madison. These bikes haven’t seen the pavement for several months, but that will change once the weather warms. Madison has one of the highest percentages of bicyclists per capita of any of the colder weather states. The city has a great system of bike paths throughout the urban area and there are many railroad-tracks-turned-bike-trails in rural Wisconsin, too.

This rooster wan’t too happy to see my camera lens pointed towards his flock of hens. I took the photo quickly, and then ske-daddled!

At Water’s Edge

29. Bodies of Water

29. Bodies of Water

This stream runs through the University of Wiscosnin at Madison campus. One of the few places with open water in the city. Nearly everything else is frozen solid, much to the satisfaction of scores of ice anglers.

Like Diamonds

292. Snow or Ice

292. Snow or Ice

After a 12 inch snowfall spanning the last two days, I had to go outside with my camera this morning. After all, the sun was shining! Started out bitter cold at 9˚F, but after I’d jumped in and out of the car a dozen times, I started getting warmer. I spent the last hour capturing bits of beauty at the local botanical gardens. I thought it had warmed considerably. When I checked the weather, the temperature had risen to 15˚. Hmm. Guess it is all a matter of perspective.
