Photos and Progress

So Blogspot/Blogger/whatever fixed their photo posting problem, which means that I can put a few of my recent pics up.  That does two things: it lets me put up a post, and it lets me do it without spending a lot of time writing.

And I don't want to spend extra time writing because I'm currently funneling my creative powers into writing a short story/long story/novelette/whatever.  Don't know how long it will be, how good it will be, or how long it will take.  But when I finish it I'll post it on this very blog for the whole world to see (all you Ukrainians ready??!?)

Fog and snow at Beaver Creek

Self portrait in headlight, with my son and nephew.

Frost & fog at Lake Milton dam.

Vertical sunrise over the interstate.

Tree on foggy shore.

Fog, snow and sun over new singletrack at Beaver Creek.  This has to be one of the best photos I've ever taken.

One other thing, for those of you who ride bikes and are interested in reading about adventure: check out this guys expedition across the real wilderness of northern Canada.  Quite an amazing story.


  1. Steve, Love the Pictures! I do like the last one as well as the one of the Dam. Keep funneling that energy! Looking forward to the end result.


  2. What camera are you using? Those are some great shots! I look forward to reading your stuff.


  3. Thanks guys. I think the pics go to show that if you take 10,000 photos you're going to get at least a couple that are nice looking - sort of a variation on the 1,000,000 monkeys with typewriters (kind of sounds like the internet there, doesn't it?)

    The camera is just a Nikon CoolPix point & shoot. It has a bunch of presets, so you can try different settings to get the best pic possible. And it's not really that expensive, so if I break it I won't feel TOO bad.

    I'm a couple thousand words into my story and not even approaching the action part - which is kind of intimidating. We'll see how this goes...

  4. I like the photos, especially the ones of this Beaver Creek.

    1. Jim,

      Thanks! It was a perfect day for dramatic pictures and I took about 100 - so I got at least a dozen good ones. Beaver Creek is one of my favorite places around here - the terrain is so much more dramatic than the usual NE Ohio rolling hills.
