A WALK IN THE SWAMP
The busyness of this time of year has been more pronounced than usual and I haven’t had much time to stop and catch my breath or capture any moments with my camera.
This afternoon, I took a little walk through the swamp. We had some rain last week and it is finally cool enough that I don’t worry as much about snakes. I thought I would share a couple of pictures with you.
Nothing in particular, just things that caught my eye like these pretty leaves. We have very little leaf color this year so these stand out.
A piece of a dead tree among the millions of leaves.
A reflection of the dock, sky and trees. The seeds and the layer of leaves add another dimension.
Behind my neighbor’s house are swamp flowers in abundance. I have been planning to take pictures and haven’t had time. Now that it has finally rained, it is too wet and swampy to get in close. Just imagine a swamp full of these pretty yellow flowers.
I apologize for the quality of these pictures. The wind was blowing and the light fading so they are not as sharp nor the color as clear as usual. I enjoyed the short time I had outdoors so much, I decided to share anyway. I hope you enjoyed it also.
