Lately I’ve been photographing spring updates for homes that first became available during the winter months. Here in northwest Wisconsin, most lakes have only been ice-free since sometime late last week. We’ve had a late spring, and now we’re going straight from winter to summer. So the last week or so I’ve been busy trying to capture exteriors that include more of the color green.
It was especially gratifying to see the before-and-after transformation of this home near Solon Springs on Upper Saint Croix Lake. Let’s just say there was a little too much white in the original photos. I like these better. When I arrived that day, the homeowner was just finishing up his spring yard work. For someone from northwest Wisconsin, he seemed pretty handy with a zen garden rake. For more, just scroll on down.
It’s been a busy couple weeks, and I’m finally back to share photos from two recent projects. The first is a cabin near Trego and Danbury, and the second is a Tavern near Gordon. And yes, there is a bear in one of these photos. (Hint: It’s hanging out at the bar, as they sometimes do.) For more, just scroll on down.
Yesterday morning I had fun shooting the aerials for this home overlooking a creek near Lake Nebagamon, WI. It sits on ten acres that are bordered by a creek along the southern edge. In between, there’s what appears to be a small whitetail Serengeti. I spotted a few deer that spotted me first, and saw several million tracks (OK, a lot, anyway). The sellers tell me they see lots of deer and turkey wandering around their front yard pretty much every day. It’s quite a spot for wildlife watching. And, as you can see in the lower-left corner of this first photo, there’s quite a pile of nicely split wood ready for this summer’s fire pit. I’m not sure if there are trout in that creek, but it does look promising.
I photographed the interiors a couple days ago, right around dinnertime. For me, that meant shredded wheat at four and leftover pizza at eight. But in between, I enjoyed my fill of truly delicious late-afternoon light. For more, just scroll on down.
