We Have Buds

No, not that kind of bud ... we have blossoms on the trees. I even mowed the lawn yesterday.

Teresa took this photo this week. We had a very busy week, but hope to get back out more this next week. The weather is much better.

Cycles of life

FullSizeRender.jpg

I was trying to capture the tree that is to the right side of this photo. It’s a dead tree, but I often find some amazing birds in it’s limbs. It’s ironic how a dead tree host some of the most amazing wildlife. The old tree stands in the middle of all of this new, lush green scenery . It’s all part of the larger cycle of life. 

This photo was taken at Garbry Big Woods Reserve. 

Have a great day.

Trees .. and Trees

I think I could create an album of nothing but trees. I love this one .. 

I took this photo at the Stillwater Prairie Reserve. This is one of my favorite spots to photograph. I highly recommend a visit!

Giant trees or little people?

On Monday morning we took a nice walk on one of the many trails in Yosemite. This lady passed us, said hello, and walked on. I guess we were slow. Our interest was in nature, so our pace allowed more photography 🤫🙂.

I caught this shot because it helped to frame the size of the trees. It’s not just a magical place ... it’s big.

A mighty oak

FullSizeRender.jpg

The Stillwater River is so scenic and beautiful. This was taken on the south side of Englewood Reserve. Just to the left of this scene there is a large oak tree. It’s reported to be over 250 years old, and measures about 15 feet in circumference. Think about it ... that tree was likely a sapling when the declariaiton of independence was signed.  Several feet up the tree, there is a red maker. It indicates the water level during the 1913 flood. This tree has stood the test of time .. it stood for something.
