After a wonderful day yesterday shooting a wedding in Huntsville it was time to head home from our weekend away. Of course that meant I could do some landscape photography on the way. Leaving the town of Bala where I stayed for the evening, I drove past a small lake with a small boat house and had to turn the car around to get a few shots. The reflection in the pond and the towering trees really caught my eye.
Back in the day my family had a cottage near the town of Coldwater and I thought it would be a great idea to stop in and see the town again. The town has an old flour mill that has been converted into a bistro. I’ve heard many a good thing about it and I hope to taste some of their offerings one day soon.
After spending some time in the town I decided to visit an old neighbour of ours. Unfortunately, they were not home so I decided to head home. The cottages in this area a close to a protected marsh land and I thought I would quickly stop there. The entrance to the marsh had an unexpected guard – an osprey with her offspring (which unfortunately I couldn’t get a photograph of).
I didn’t want to get too close or stress her out too much so I only stayed long enough to get a couple photographs. It was an unexpected surprise and great end to the day to find this beautiful bird with her offspring.
