A late Autumn Walk in the Woods

Wow, It has been most of the summer since I last posted. I need to get out and get more photos to post. It has been very busy summer mountain biking and didn’t want to bore all with so many similar shots.

Here are my latest from a walk in the nearby woods.

Lupine

I haven’t posted anything in a while. The other day while mountain biking on a favorite trail I took note of the blooming lupine. I got off the bike and snapped a shot of a bee on one of the flowers.

Ahhh Winter

After the Winter by Claude McKay

“Some day, when trees have shed their leaves
And against the morning’s white
The shivering birds beneath the eaves
Have sheltered for the night”

I never tire of photographing the outdoors at any season.

Winter Woods

Very invigorating to hike through the woods on a cold winter day. The cold air and smell of the pines just makes me glad to be alive.Every season has something special to offer. Compared to summer it is like a window has opened and you can see things that were totally hidden with all the leaves.
The trails I hiked today meander through meadows,marshes, pine forests, and along unfrozen rivers.

A poem I like:

Winter Woods
Winter slips silently around me
Walking me to cold, crisp woods
To gaze upon the peaceful slumber
Suddenly exhilarated, restored in found solace
