Snow Days – Video Clip Of The Day

Decided to try my go at some video shooting a few weekends ago. The weather was overcast, cold, and less than ideal for stunning photo shots.

Despite all of that, I decided to see if I could catch anything that caught my creative eye. I did find a lovely place to shoot and it started snowing just as I was setting up. Normally, I don’t like to fly in the snow for safety reasons, but the area was clear and safe.

I was really pleased with the final edit from this little adventure. This video clip is a good reminder for me that even in the darkest of days, if our minds are open and our hearts are centered, we can still find beauty to enjoy and share.

Hope Everyone Is Having A GREAT WEEK!

More snow here today...

Take care 🐼😊👍✌️


Winter Sunset – Photo Of The Day

Took this photo last weekend and I am really happy how it turned out. It was a beautiful sunset that is still burned in my mind. I watched the sun pass over the horizon through the eyes of my drone.

It was spectacular to see the sun change colors as it disappeared. It probably was my imagination but for a split second I thought I saw some dark patches like sun spots just as it got dark.

I’ve included my photo captured on my Mavic Pro as well as a quick time lapse video. The video doesn’t give justice to what it really looks like, but it is still beautiful to watch.

Take Care Everyone and Happy Friday 😎🐼✌️!


4K 360 View Nankin Lake, Livonia, Michigan

My first 360 video on one of my custom Quadcopters. It. was a beautiful cold day with the family enjoying the view letting dad take a quick flight over one of my favorite local MetroParks. I love ducks, Swans and wildlife. I find it fascinating that wildlife survives in such cold temperatures and swim in it. Good things coming.


Sunny Sunday – Video Of The Day

Enjoyed a beautiful sunny Sunday two weeks ago. There hasn't been much sunshine here in Michigan so you have to enjoy it when you can. Everyone have a great week!!

“Frosted Tips” – Photo Of The Day

I apologize for not visiting my favorites blogs and posting much this month. I've been super busy at my real job and battling a bad cold 🥶. Probably from taking too many pictures like this 😂.
Hope to visit you all soon and have a blessed week !


First Light – Photo Of The Day

I feel bad that I haven't had much time to post or follow all my Wordpress friends and artists lately. I've been very busy at work trying to "catch up" with this being my last week before the holiday break.

Here is a photo from this past fall, that I really like how it turned out. It was a foggy morning in Northern Michigan. You could feel the moisture and the chilled air on your face. The pines and outdoor air smelled fresh with dew and was miraculously uplifting to the senses.

Remember, if I don't get to your pages, remember I try and am thinking of all of my wonderful artists 🐼😊!

Happy Holidays Panda Pals !


“Duality” – Photo Of The Day

The Duality of Life and Death. ...

Duality teaches us that every aspect of life is created from a balanced interaction of opposite and competing forces. Yet these forces are not just opposites; they are complementary. They do not cancel out each other, they merely balance each other like the dual wings of a bird.

I struggle to maintain a balanced lifestyle like I am sure most of us do. Everyone walks their own path in life and in doing so I recommend if you haven't already found it to seek out your own ways to maintain a balanced lifestyle.
The closer I get to my own personal balance the more satisfied and happier I feel. It is a constant balancing act.
Family, Blogging, getting out in nature, droning, photo editing, creating, are ways I help balance my stressful day job as a social worker.

Please share in the comments some of your own ways you help maintain your balance.


“Absence ” – Photo of the day

"Darkness is the absence of light".

I know most people love colors and so do I, but I have been loving exploring various black and white shots lately.

It is bringing out the minimalist in me.

Have a great week everyone!!!
