Best of 2017: Blogging into the sunset for 2017

I try to drag the Best of  the year into the next year or so it seems but this about wraps it up on another calendar year of my photo adventures.  I think the over 500 shots I took in Manhattan sapped my output the rest of the year…. and its been busy year, but still I got some nice shots in the time I alloted.  Here is series I took on my only excursion in November to Crow Hassan Park, a park that is mix of woods and prairie, subtle in beauty but I have gotten some nice shots there over the years.

Best of 2017: Holy Hill Shrine, Erin WI

On a return trip to SE Wisconsin to visit my mom last September, stopped at the scenic Roman Catholic shrine NW of Milwaukee metro area.  Set upon a hill in the Kettle Moraine glacial area, the views are wonderful, it would be great destination during peak fall colors.  The only disturbing aspect was the stain glass window with a very unhappy looking savior.  I would not cross this man… ahem, forgive me.
