One of the members of our community has started a photography club, and of course, I decided to join. Today we took our frst field trip to a local park, which I had no idea existed. It's very nicely laid out, and is a wildlife area, but of course as is usual, I didn't see any wildlife. There are several paths for walking, jogging, bicycling, etc. I'll have to keep this mind as a place to walk when the weather gets a little cooler.
Here are a few samples of my work. The trees are starting to change color and that added some interest to the scenery.
There was one area with a lot of dead trees. It looked so out of place being so close to the other trees and grasses. I don't know why, but I'm fascinated with reflections. So many of my pictures show reflections of either mountains in the lake, or in this case, the trees. I wonder what that says about me.
This last picture has an amusing story. While I was taking several shots of this tree with birds, a jogger came up to me and asked what kinds of birds they were. She suggested osprey, but I said I thought they were too small. I thought, maybe mourning doves, but I really have no idea. Maybe I should look into birdwatching. Hmm, something else to learn.
