Web architecture

Sounds like something about the internet, but it's just nature. I wonder if webs like this were the inspiration for some of our modern cable-stayed bridges?

Interesting angles in a spider's web.

Summer is making a brief reappearance in our neck of the woods. We're having high temperatures in the mid 20sC (high 70sF). The weather is expected to break over the weekend with the arrival of a low pressure system and thunderstorms. Still, the temperatures aren't expected to drop a lot in the following week. We'll see.

Meanwhile, I've started the lumberjacking process. So far, I've cut forty logs (two cuts each) and stacked them. There's still a long way to go.

  7. What a stunning photo!!

    Some of our wood arrives on Monday but thanksfully we don't have to cut it . However, we do have a field maple to deal with, it sort of keeled over [still alive] and will make good fire wood - once it's seasoned... .so it will be chainsaw at the ready soon.

    2. Hi Walt, well some places and some misses. The last competition neither of my two snaps were placed, and there were only three entries! I missed what the judge said, but it was clear he did *not* like my entries! Your snaps give me inspiration....
