The picture isn't very exciting, but if you turn your volume up loud and listen, you'll hear the sounds of spring - both Spring Peepers and Wood Frogs. The first are the loud 'peeps', and the second sound very much like gabbling ducks. I was afraid they'd shut down when I got close, but I was able to walk right up to the little wetland and record them. At the beginning of the video you catch a brief glimpse of our green house across the road, and there's an old farm field roller in the foreground part way through the video.
I was over on the shoreline of Lake Huron on Saturday, and thought I had captured some great photos of the lake to share today. But it was a disaster. I had been photographing inside a building, and had the ISO set up high. One of those newbie photographer mistakes, I failed to recheck my settings outside in the bright sun. All the photos were over-exposed. Never-the-less, I'm going to share three of them here to embarrass myself, in the hopes I will remember this occasion and not do that again!

I worked away to change the bad exposure in Lightroom, but with very limited results. All the colours are still way off! The lighthouse picture isn't too bad, but the last two pictures of brilliant turquoise water and sky are TOTALLY unrealistic!
With that I'm taking a two-week break; will be back in late April. Have a great early spring.
