The Melt is Over 2-23-14 Lorain County Ohio USA

by Mark E. Schrull

2/23/14 Lorain – The past few days brought a welcome melt to Northern Ohio.  Flooding and ice jams have been a problem along the Vermilion and the Rocky rivers according to the local Cleveland news stations.  Currently we are experiencing a partly sunny sky, however, the cold has returned.

Deer at Lorain County Metro Park Day’s Dam

by Mark Schrull

8/11/2013 Lorain, Ohio, USA – It was as good a day as anyone can have.  Mid-seventies, sun shining, absolutely beautiful.  Rhonda and I decided to walk to the small picnic table shelter about 3 miles down the paved path heading south from the parking lot in Day’s Dam.

Along the way we kept seeing evidence of deer beds – places where the under brush is smashed down from where a deer has slept.  I had a feeling we were going to see one.

And there is was, a splendid vision.  A wink at us through God’s eye.  A yearling, walking in a small stream just off the path.  We felt so blessed.  I felt blessed to get these shots.  Enjoy.
