Century Oak

The Century Oak, located in the heart of Texas A&M Univeristy campus, is a place that holds a special place in the heart of many Aggies. Well over 100 years old, the tree, a live oak, was one of the first trees planted on the massive 5,200-acre campus. The tree has been the site of numerous marriage proposals, weddings and tourist snapshots because of its immense size and its unique drooping branches, many of which rest on the ground.

3 Chairs Sunrise

It was a great way to spend a summer evening in Door County, Wisconsin. Even better way to watch a sunrise over Lake Michigan. You can purchase this photo here: http://fineartamerica.com/featured/3-chairs-sunrise-scott-norris.html.

Prairie du Sac

We went to see some Bald Eagles in the Sauk Prairie area in Wisconsin. The Eagles didn't cooperate and Mother Nature certainly didn't with overcast foggy hazy conditions - terrible for taking nice photos. But, with a lot of processing (A LOT!!), I did coax a pretty good image out of this shot. It's part photograph and certainly part painting. Enjoy.

Boardwalk

This boardwalk is in McKinney, Texas. It was supposed to be over a lush marsh and pond but whole area was dry due to the severe drought.

Path to the Swing

At the end of the stone-lined path is a small wooden swing over-looking the lake. I never made it to the swing, the journey toward it was too enchanting. You can purchase this photo here: http://fineartamerica.com/featured/the-path-to-the-swing-scott-norris.html.

Water Drops on Dandelion Flower

Forsaken Road

"Oh look out world, take a good look What comes down here You must learn this lesson fast and learn it well This ain't no upwardly mobile freeway Oh no, This is the road to hell" -- Chris Rea, The Road to Hell (Part II) Winding down a ravine from on top of the bluffs in Milwaukee's Lake Park down to Lincoln Memorial Drive along the shore of Lake Michigan, Ravine Road was once a busy street. However, an aging concrete footbridge over the road began to fail and the road was closed indefinitely. Not great for drivers, but it makes for some great photographs.

New Leaf on the Old

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." -- Seneca A single new leaf, fallen after a brief Spring storm, lays on the forest floor of old decaying leaves from the previous Fall. I love the juxtapostion of the new versus the old. Shot along the 1200 mile long Ice Age Trail in the Kettle Moraine Forest Southern Unit in southeast Wisconsin.
