February drive...

Today; my wife and I took our first trip out of the house, and from the hospital for that matter, to Lake Sakakawea area to see what kind of pictures we could come up with. It was a little cloudy in some parts and sunny in others only miles apart. It is a little muddy out, brown plant life from the season and very little activity to be seen. In all that we remained hopeful. I told her we have to look for things that people from outside this area would like to see. One location was an old windmill surrounded by the new energy windmills we have out here. The next was an old farmstead that had hundreds of Canada Geese  in the fields. It was too muddy and we could not get close enough for descent pictures though. The next area was along Lake Sakakawea in the Riverdale area. We saw some Ice fishermen out there trying to get that elusive catch of walleye. We would have gotten closer shots but we were surprised that people were out on the ice... way to warm for us and trusting that ice was just not happening for us. Finally the last stop was on our way back home around the town of Stanton. We saw the power plant there and took an off road to make an attempt at a scenery shot of the power plant. All in all we had a good time... it was nice to get out of the house and with the frustrating season we did get a few photos out of the day as well. So if you think there is nothing out there to shoot some days think twice and try anyway. You may be surprised at what you get. :-)
