I like this scene. I like the time of day. I like the natural lighting. Not so much that it can compete with all the beautiful images (I know it is not quite as good), but more from how this spot makes me feel. I like the late day shadowing and the idea of where the trail might go. The uncertainty that lurks around the corner, what mystery hides amongst the trees.
But I do know, since I have been here many times before, but I guess a surprise could reveal itself. Hopefully a good surprise, like a sleeping deer, golden eagle or such. I will get to Whirlpool State Park this Spring, but just did not get a chance as of yet. The scene will be similar to winter, but without the dreary winter’s gray day. Little has leafed out, but if I get the time of day right, the little buds will light up like Christmas tree decorations, glowing in various warm colors.
See how the mood and color change from a jump of seasons? Here is hoping the jump to Spring keeps this winter look stashed away until next December. NO MORE SNOW!
For those that celebrate, have a wonderful Easter. My Street Tree series will return on Sunday night for Monday. We will have pages 75 to 83 with What’s it Like to be a Street Tree. My magazine keeps growing……..
My entry for the Gardening Gone Wild, Picture This Contest is the scene from October, where the darkening sky turns off the lights on the trail. Oh, BTW, I made it back before dark too. See the post on Green Apples for another photograph for Sky Watch Friday.
