Fall isn’t officially here yet and the weather keeps reminding us of that lovely little fact. But before the 90-degree weather settled in for the day, my sister and I took a little trip this morning to the park by where I work. I call this place “The Fens” because of the marshy pond that makes for serene nature photography. There wasn’t a duck or goose in sight on this occasion, though I’m always more drawn to the plant life anyway – at least for photos. The cattails, the wildflowers, the autumn berries…and I think my favorite shot I got today is the one of the thistle.
I can’t wait for the cool, crisp temperatures to take over. I can’t wait to be outside more.
I have never needed the serenity of nature like I have this year.
