It was a hell of a sunny morning ... that I couldn't really open my eyes.

Sometimes driving down the wrong road isn't so bad after all. Yesterday I planned to go to shoot some frozen lakes but missed the right exit on the highway. While looking for the correct route, I found this abandoned hog house. I ended up spending a lot of time taking photos in this neighborhood. Then, as you can see in this photo, the weather became bad so I decided to go home instead of going to the lake shore.

This is a photo of Geddes Dam on the Huron River. There are two dams on the Huron River in Ann Arbor, Michigan: Argo Dam and Geddes Dam. This was my first time seeing a dam up close. Although it is not huge, it is still an amazing experience.

I found a small pond in south Ann Arbor. The frozen water surface was starting to melt at this time (the end of winter), and these three swans were swimming in the open water of the half-frozen pond. I took many pictures of them and chose this one because they were all with the same posture. I remembered one time I was at Gallup Park shooting swans. An older man told me that the swan with gray feather and beak was the young one (like the swan on the left side of this photo). When it matures, the beak becomes orange and the feathers become snow white (like the other two swans in this photo). I found out that this species of swans are called Mute Swans.

This colorful hot spring photo was taken at Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park. It really shows how incredible Mother Nature can be. The colors of the hot spring are actually the colors of bacteria growing at different temperature levels of the water. This is the most impressive scene of Yellowstone.

I snapped this shot on a boat while I was taking a boat tour on the Chicago River. The highest building in this photo is the Sears Tower (According to Wikipedia, the Sears Tower was officially renamed the Willis Tower on July 16, 2009.) And I have no idea what the names of the other buildings are.

I took this photo at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. I just knew that at night time there would be some artificial light cast on the statue. Maybe it's a good idea to visit here at night.
