My photo of Hoffman Hills was use in Thomas Pearson’s excellent book “When the Hills are Gone – Frac Sand Mining and the Struggle for Community”. It documents Wisconsin’s struggle with sand mining.

My wife printed, matted and framed six of my fall photos for an exhibit at the Menomonie Public Library. The exhibit will run through the month of October.

My wife and I spent an hour walking around the Prairie at Hoffman Hills. Not the peak season for photography but we did manage a few photos.

This is one of my favorite locations to photograph the spring colors. It was a bit early to get any green but the maples were starting to flower creating some beautiful reds. I find photographing the spring colors almost as much fun as photographing the leaves turning in the fall. These were taken from the top of the tower at Hoffman Hills Recreation Area.



More spring photographs from Hoffman Hills can be found on my website.

We had been traveling so much that we almost missed the fall colors around our home. We were able to capture the early fall colors on a walk through the Hoffman Hills Recreation Area.



In several visits to Hoffman Hills Recreation Area I found a number of late spring flowers blooming.
