Maximus & Dora: Up North Wisconsin!

I was up north in Wisconsin visiting a summer camp that I worked at in 1991. Twenty years later, and still enjoy being on camp and enjoying the northwoods. This time, I brought Maximus and Dora with me to enjoy some off-leash time on camp. They were nice enough to pose for me in the autumn colors.

That's Crantastic! (Aerial Views of a Wisconsin Cranberry Harvest)

It's harvest time in Wisconsin for Cranberry farms, and I was lucky enough to be invited to the Crimson Star Cranberry farm in Bancroft. It was a beautiful and unseasonably warm October day with a steady breeze, which allowed me to get out the kite from some Aerial photography. After the berries are plucked from the vines, they fill up each field with water and let the Cranberries float to the top, and then they herd all the berries to the end of the pool to be sucked up into an awaiting truck. Very organized process, and was able to see all aspects of the harvest. I also was able to get my Carp Pole out for some low-level aerial pics from closer to the ground.

Some of the berries are red, some are white, and in between. This gives the pinkish look as they are pooled together.
