Gentle Caress

Midday, Floral, Macro

What a day!

Don’t let it pass without enjoying it.

I know!

Go for a walk. The trail along the river will be good. Bring the camera, you know there will be plenty to photograph. Make it happen!

Alright, I’m going. Where’s the camera? Got it. Let’s go…

I walked the Mohawk River Trail and it took me a lot longer than normal. I was finding great subjects for the macro lens. I made it all the way to my normal turn-around when I captured the “keeper” image. The one!

Don’t get me wrong, I was happy with a lot of the images I was capturing but this one jump started my brain. The walk back along the trail was at a quicker pace than the first half. I was churning over a haiku to go along with the image.

I haven’t done that in a long time…

Dreams of Summer

The recent return of cooler temperatures have only increased my dreams for summer. The walks last weekend have me anxiously awaiting the arrival of more floral subjects. Yes, landscapes are my thing but I still find the search for an interesting macro image very satisfying.

Another Walk

Mohawk River Trail – Heading North

Late Sunday morning was the perfect time for another walk. This time when I left my apartment I headed North along the Mohawk River Trail from Olney’s Flower Shop. This section of the trail has not been paved yet (not positive if it will be) but it is a section that follows the old Black River Canal.

On the left of this image would be the Mohawk River and on the right is the remains of the canal. I know, you can’t really see those features but trust me, they are there… 🙂

The Path

The subjects for my camera were not as plentiful along this section of the trail. I did find a great area which has been populated by daffodils. I’m not positive if the homeowner up along the boulevard created the area or if it naturally occurred from the large flower beds behind the house. Either way, it allowed me to grab a quick pic or two…

I have a few more images to share but I’m running out of time this morning. I’ll save those for another day…

Fade Away

Midday, Floral, Macro

Another beautiful day in Central NY. I wasn’t going to let the day pass me by so I grabbed the camera with the macro lens and headed out the door.

I wanted to walk the trail along the canal again. I know it is a good five mile round trip and I definitely need to be active. Lazy is easy… 🙂

My focus was finding subjects for my macro lens. Should be easy. I walked the entire path and barely stopped for an image. At the end (the end where I turn around) I found a few small flowers and interesting dried up ferns (?). The minute I found these small yellow flowers, I couldn’t stop seeing them. On the walk back to the apartment I noticed everything I missed initially.


I was looking, I swear.

Now I’m thinking I was off in la-la land as I was walking. It amazed me what I missed.
