Sometimes when in nature it’s not about a new discovery to photograph, it’s about being in the moment, awake, content with the “usual” flowers, insects, or birds, their motion, colors, sounds, feeling the cool early morning air, drawing it into our lungs, aware as treetop leave rustle and small ripples appear along the reservoir shore.
But even during those times, in that experience, we do see things that draw us out, that asked to be photographed, and in doing so embrace us in a feeling of oneness with something that is part but also beyond ourselves. In that moment time, as if also captured by the photograph, stands still.
Recent dry weather has resulted in low water levels.
Flower’s continue to be a part of the wonder.
When looking at flowers other things are seen.
On a recent walk an Osprey was spotted in what appeared to be an agitated state.
We’ve also been fortunate to enjoy a few other birds.
There seem to be lots of chipmunks right now.
Being a mom isn’t easy.
Sometimes being in nature just means relaxing.
Sometimes the opportunity to reflect on what’s been experienced is as good as reliving it a second time.
Thanks for stopping by.
