I challenge you to find the definition of this word. I will give you a hint, it would be a strong description of today.
I have decided that I am going to make an effort to go out once a week on location scouting expeditions.
Today my choice was Carburn Park. This is a small man-made park in Riverbend. I never would have found this place if I hadn't planned this trip out.
The weather was fantastic, beautiful, strong sunshine.
I have a great visualization for what this path will look like in full foliage. I will have to come back here in the summer. This is such a great spot because there are no houses, or buildings. Such a rare thing here in the city.
This tree was too great to pass up. I love all the branches going out in every direction.
The two major birds I saw on this trip were Canadian Geese and Chickadees. These little chickadees were just flying everywhere and swooping right in front of my camera. I was really glad that I caught this shot. I set my camera to continous shutter and hoped that I could get one of them. It worked quite well considering my expectations.
I couldn't resist the contrast of the blue and white. I love the simplicity of this shot.
Just in case you are wondering, I wanted to share a few details of this park. It seemed pretty quiet, of course it was a weekday afternoon, I am not sure how busy I expected it to be. There are quite a few little trails that you can explore. I was expecting more paved pathways, and had I known what it was going to be like, I might not have chosen the stroller. But, we managed. AND there was a ton of mud. I would definitely choose this as a place to take kids, there was lots to explore and great areas to go throw some rocks into the water.
