We finally had a nice winter day, so Cam and I took the dogs for a walk at the State Arboretum of Virginia. We chose the three-mile loop and enjoyed stretching our legs and letting Peppermint and Derby, the dog that we’re dog-sitting this weekend, run through some of the open fields.
It was the calm before the next storm, and the cirrus clouds made for a nice backdrop to the beautiful scenery. In addition to getting the dogs some exercise, I hoped to wear Cam out a bit, too, since I fear we’ll have our third consecutive “snow” day tomorrow. An impending ice storm lurks just to the west, and, of course, Cam is crossing his fingers.
I feel like the “in” crowd as I know I recognize some recent shots from places you visited last year! How lucky you are living in the VA area.
So glad to have you following! I got an email the other day that Bird Talk magazine had shut down. My first published photos all those years ago thanks to you, and I’m still here with a camera in my hand!
You took this with your iPhone? If so, it’s fantastic! Glad you were able to enjoy the day before it gets nasty again.
Yes, the iPhone to the rescue again! I think the battery on the RX100 loses power more quickly in the cold weather. Must remember to charge it daily…
I especially like the fence in this shot, reminds me of Robert Frost’s “good fences make good neighbors.” Thanks.
Thank you, Patti! A great poem that I just reread. So true!
That is a stunning photo, you have seen it with the eyes of an artist I love the stone wall curving into the photo
