Spring Trees

Taking a different route today on my neighbourhood walk (have to keep things fresh and exciting) I came across this beautiful scene.

The late spring colours are so fresh and full of life after the browns of late winter/early spring.

Further down this path the willow trees were in full bud mode.

As I continued my walk I crossed over an old bridge and found this little beetle making its way along the top rail. I have no idea what kind of beetle he is but he was motoring along with a purpose.

It still amazes me what you can discover even in a suburban area.

Caledon Trailway

On the way home from my accountant’s place I stopped for a quick walk in Caledon on the Caledon Trailway.

Since it is still spring and the plants are slowly coming back this was the best view along the trail with all the evergreens.

Mushrooms at Cameron Lake

After my first successful trip to Cameron Lake in September I decided to drag Nigel to the trail and see what we could find. It started out as a foggy day but it made the forest ore atmospheric. We only hoped that the rain would hold off.

The mushrooms that I had seen back in September had mostly died to be replaced with new types to photograph.

We didn’t luck out as we had hoped with the rain and we got caught just over halfway through the trail. It didn’t last long and luckily we were prepared with rain gear. The good thing we were going back to the B&B and hitting their hot tub to warm up. ?

Old Fences and the Colour Yellow

A quick walk around the neighbourhood can wield some fun things to photograph. I have passed this fence many times on my walks but today it caught my eye and I decided to photograph it.

Autumn is a great time for flowers. There are so many options and so many colours. My favourite are the yellows, oranges and reds that this season is known for.

As I pass my high school’s football (which I have no idea on when it was last used as a football field – certainly not in the last 30 years or so) I notice these vines reaching past the fence.

When we start seeing the things around us we notice how much we missed when we just walked by with our eyes focused on where we were going or on our phones. It’s time to start seeing.

Pond off Humber River Trail

Another bike ride down the Humber Recreational Trail today had me going a little further than usual and I decided to stop at a pond off the Humber River to get in some picture-taking.

It was an overcast day and things were looking blah but this closeup of the reeds turned out great!

With such a blah looking sky I decided to convert this photo as a black and white. It comes across much better. I do have to admit that it’s not the sharpest photograph but I really like the look of it so I decided to share it anyway. Enjoy!
