A Walk in the Woods

Stellar weather today. The temperatures are in the mid 50s, with sunshine and no wind. It was a perfect afternoon for walking. We went to the Pathfinder, which winds its way through the floodplain along the river. I brought my Canon camera and got a few shots that could serve as reference photos for future drawings.

Over the river. Beautiful lines, shadows and colors.
Interesting perspective
Great reflections on the pond and fine color contrast between banks and water.
The trees in the foreground frame the shot.
Really lovely bark texture and brilliant green moss.

Back home for a cup of tea with biscuits (also known as cookies to those of us who live in the States.) The number of days with gorgeous weather this year is about over.


One of six children, I was raised by a busy mom, who instilled in me a love of fabric. Though I learned to sew and knit at a young age, it was the arrival of my first grandchild that pushed me into action. A long-time knitter, I am now ready to explore all things fiber.

  1. Lovely pictures, Laura We went for a walk on Sat to Wetmore Park. You would not recognize it. There is a huge mound in the middle with a walkway. The walkway ended at that little bridge we used to use for Browning Flying Up Ceremonies. The park is now a holding basin for storm water that used to collect in the Holy Family Parking. Remember when Joy went swimming there one year when there was a flood. Yuck, dirty water!
