A Walk in the Woods


Across the road from our house is our neighbor’s pasture, and on the other side of the pasture are the woods.  The woods are very lovely – there is a little creek running through them, and not many people go back there, so it has an untouched feel.  We went back there for the first time two years or so ago, and we never made it back, until now.

Yesterday my brother and I went for a walk in those woods.  We had talked about going back for a walk/photography outing, and it took us 2 years to finally go.  He came to me a couple times yesterday to ask me about going, but I didn’t think that it would be able to happen yesterday.  It turned out well, and we were able to go out for 45 minutes.  It was very nice.  Everything is looking green again, and the flowers are blooming.  We are hoping to go back sometime soon when there are more leaves on the trees.

Isn’t the veining on this leaf so interesting?

The little creek – I am hoping that we can go back when it is a bit fuller

There are all kinds of lovely places like this – wouldn’t it be fun to have a picnic under these trees?

Can you see the little trail?

There was a patch of these flowers.  Some were in the shade…

Nutmeg found us about 15 minutes or so into our little jaunt, and he followed us until we left the pasture

My brother, who carried my other lens in the bag, and was so sweet about my constant dropping to my knees and saying,”O.K., I need the other lens.”

Another good place for a picnic

As we were leaving, I saw this rock jutting out over the creek.  I’ll have to spend more time the next time we go for a walk photographing it.

I love how the sun is shining on these things

    (P.S. That was me that left a comment under the name “basicgaps”…it was an accident, but that’s the only name it would let me use! Some WordPress specifications I think…)
