CarcassI live in a place where this can be a common site–this shot was taken last winter on Lakeshore Blvd. on the way out to Presque Isle. I call the photo, Carcass. It struck me that nature finds a way. This animal provided food for many. In the background are the stacks of the power plant, and a glimpse of the ore dock.

Mike and I had been out hiking on Presque Isle and attending an Art Show that was along the trials. We started out in snowshoes but due to the patchiness of the snow ended up slinging them across our back.

I caught sight of the carcass in the tree as we drove home and made Mike turn around so I could get the shot.
