A Walk Along The Scioto

Finding autumn in a composition of color, leaves, and trees that speak to us, can be a challenge. Especially when looking for new or different interpretations. On any given day the message can be very different, sunny bright, and cheerful, or overcast rainy, and solemn. Some days we must content ourselves with views through water streaked windows as a windy rain strips branches and blankets the ground with color.

Autumn is particularly enchanting when the magic is found close home such as during a recent walk along the Scioto River. We felt particularly blessed as Ruby-crowned Kinglets seemed to be everywhere. Two Dark-eyed Juncos even made a brief appearance but eluded the camera’s lens.

Dark, cloudy, or rainy days seldom get creative juices flowing and I’m not one to go out in the rain just to see what kinds of “rain pictures” I can come up with. But sometimes, if you are significantly enchanted by a subject, it may be worth looking at it under different kinds of light and climatic conditions. In dong so it may be more fully appreciated and it’s beauty more completely revealed.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Thanks for the blog and sharing these photos (as usual). I’m not much into birds or fungi specifically, but I really appreciate how you take time to SEE things and share your particular vision. I find it far too easy to let the seasons pass and ignore the natural work. It’s much too easy to just run around in our busy lives and ignore the passage of time that nature reflects so delicately. Each of your posts lets me slow down, reframe my vision, and appreciate the passage of time and the natural world that I see too infrequently. Much appreciated.

  2. Beautiful scenery! Even its colors aren’t bright and colorful, the spirit of the little Kinglet really brightens up the forest!

  3. Thanks for the walk in the rain. Your photos turn what could be a dreary rainy day into tranquility and beauty. This is magical!
