A Late Summer Pond

public.jpeg

This view never gets old. This pond is about 50% covered in algae. The lush green of the trees and shrubs make it difficult to get a clear shot, but that is what makes the photo beautiful. I plan to go back sometime this week and take a drone shot from about 400 feet up. That should be fun.

Bike Trails

We hike this trail frequently. Lately I have been biking it with my son.

This photo was taken just about ½ way between Piqua and Troy. The trail curves back and forth, and it is so beautiful. You don’t see too many birds during the Summer due to the heavy follage, but its not uncommon to see a deer or two.

This weekend on a bike ride south of Troy, we saw three or four deer on the trial at about 7:00A. They didn’t waste any time running off to a safe place.

In the future I am. going to start wearing my GoPro so I can. capture some of this footage.

Old Fallen Tree That Refused to Give Up

Check out this dead tree. Wait, look closely at what has happened. There are new sprouts, and one has gown into a larger tree.

I guess the old tree refused to give up. I’m sure there is a lesson in there for each of us. The fact is, age does not matter. You can always try something new. Never give up my friends.

Regardless, it is very cool.

Peaceful

I don’t post many landscape photos, but this scene was beautiful. It was a mostly clear day, and the lighting was perfect. The surface of the water was like glass. The sky line was not great, but I still love the shot.

We had just finished taking photos at the falls near Richmond. On the way to the car we hiked by this pond. The scene caught my eye immediately .. and so here it is.

Rocks and Mountains

DSC_0061.jpeg

Teresa took this photo. The skyline was so amazing at Arches. The nearby sandstone was great, and then we had the snowcapped mountains on the horizon. What a view!

We created this video of our 2nd and 3rd day of hiking, and then spend some time just relaxing .. and driving.
