Today’s Photography 101 theme is “connect.” Today, I connected with a group of people who love to hike!

I’m a member of the Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group, and this evening’s hike was the first of many weekly hikes at Centennial Park in Ellicott City, Md.. for the 2015 hiking season. The evening was warm, even though there’s still snow on the ground. The snow didn’t deter these intrepid hikers, who were all excited about getting outdoors and connecting with other hikers after a long, cold winter slog!


A winter day at Brookside Gardens

This afternoon, we visited Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Md. And while it may look like the photos below were taken at two different times and in two different places, they were all taken today in snowy Maryland. That’s because Brookside Gardens has a conservatory with a beautiful array of tropical flowers and plants.

You can view the photos as a slideshow by clicking one and using the right and left arrows to scroll through them. To close the slideshow, click the x in the upper-left corner

And, if you’re interested in visiting Brookside Gardens, here are their hours and directions, along with a map.

I haven’t posted in my blog for a really long time, so I’m kind of rusty! But I recently signed up for a WordPress course called Photo 101, and this is my first course assignment. The theme is “Home.” Please bear with me as I get back up to speed.
