Today we returned to Seal Bay Nature Park. It was sunny and threatening to get to 80F! There are a few choices of trails.
We chose to stay in the woods where the sunshine came through the canopy, creating light spots in the dark forest. This is one of the things Liz Wiltzen taught me about taking photos for future painting ideas – look for the drama of light and dark contrast. Today it was the light in the forest:
Jean stopped to sketch some interesting trees.
We found a tree that seemed to be quite unhappy being cut down.
And we came upon this little guy sunning himself on a log and looking under the moss for tasty insects.
An altogether enjoyable walk!
I’m really enjoying your vacation and all the gorgeous photos. Hi to Jean.
I most certainly would have freaked out with the snake. I knew that nature was fundamentally hostile, even when it allows you to make gorgeous pictures.
Especially like the lightning on the ferns
