I participated in a 4.5 mile hike today at Lake Audubon in Reston, Va., with the Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group. Even though it’s officially spring, it still looked a lot like winter today, and the air was chilly and damp.
It was a wonderful hike, and as a first sign of spring, we saw lots of skunk cabbages poking up in some of the swampy spots.
Spring will get here, it’s just taking its own sweet time!
Today’s Photography 101 theme is “Natural World and Leading Lines.” This branch promises the faintest hint of spring…
Our next Photography 101 theme is “big.”
Around here, “big” is a relative term. In today’s photo, we have a big (actually, giant) Costco-sized package of paper towels, a cat (a medium-sized feline model named Gabby), and a small (actually, tiny) toy bird.
It snowed here yesterday. This lone tree in my backyard speaks to me of solitude.
