Jasper Pulaski Nature Preserve


You really don’t know how big this area is until you drive around all the country roads that cross through it. I mainly went to JPNP to get some fall color photographs as I figured it would be better the further north I went. Was I ever wrong. There is more around my home area than there. While there is some color, it was not a lot of it. So the photographs were limited to what I could get today. While I was just there for fall color photographs I found out that some sandhill cranes were still coming in and of course some were still leaving the area on their migration. So I also shot several videos but it was windy and even with a sturdy tripod the camera was still doing a dance while taking photos and videos. So here is what I did manage to get today.

A few Sandhill Cranes. They sure do make a lot of racket. We could hear them as they were flying above us.

This was the fishing area they had. You can tell it was man made and it was stocked with largemouth bass and channel catfish.

This was beside the building where the tree farm was. It was pretty but you couldn't tell it until you was on the right side of the pond.

This is shot down in the tree farm area. There were only a few trees that actually stood out really well. A polarizer filter made the difference.
