I am a housewife and live in Bettendorf, Iowa. I have always been interested in nature pictures. My dad did not share my interest. "It's not a picture without people in it!" I think there is room in the world for both kinds. I started here with an exilim pocket camera. I upgraded to an Olympus in the Summer of 2012. In January of 2013 I got a Samsung smart camera. Really nice! I like taking pictures along the shore of the Mississippi River which is just 10 blocks away from my house. I love looking at other people's pictures also.
The Ducks, the river, the sky, the beauty

Caption: This picture grew on me the more I looked at it. This is the Mississippi River at Leach Park in Bettendorf, IA A few mallard ducks huddled between the free flowing water and the developing ice. The sun was setting in the SW but also turn the sky in the NW pink.
