We spent the morning at Chicopee State Park on Tuesday. CPT America had a rare day off, and after we’d finished voting, we piled the kids into the car and headed for the walking trails.
It turned out to be a beautiful day for it. The sun was pleasantly warm and there was still plenty of autumnal color to be seen. The woods smelled nice and “dried-leafy” – which is how I describe that nice smell you get on warm, dry days when you’re stomping through piles of leaves. Those are great days.
Ginger spent most of our walk taking photos, and, since all of the photos I’ve included here are her work, she thought she should be the one to talk about them. That seemed reasonable. So, without further ado, here’s Ginger…
"The Pond" as I call it was a lovely, easygoing photo of the close up lake.
"Footsteps" was my 2nd favorite photo of the day. (Or, should I say "evening", because I saved the editing for the last minute).
"The Storm Cloud" came in as a big hit with all the family. I like the black and white setting I used.
On "La River" I used the "miniature" setting. It looks so wee!
This "White Plant" was a last minute photo on the "softener" setting.
This was my favorite of all the photos. A nice "work of (lens) art" as I would say. The background matches her so darn much!
Okay! So there you have it. Lovely fall photos from a lovely walk in the woods. Thank you for sharing Ginger.
(And, I’ll have to be careful, or that child’s going to hijack this blog. She enjoyed that entirely too much).
From the dining room table, with Ginger still dictating to me (Ginger: “‘Dictating’ is an ugly word”) – ahem, suggesting what I should write,
